LAS VEGAS, NV–(Marketwire – September 2, 2010) – World Series of Golf®, Inc. (
World Series of Golf kicked off its updated and expanded business plan two weeks ago with the announcement of new CEO Brown. The updated business plan includes a continuation of the Company’s past golf tournaments that combine the wagering format of Texas Hold ‘Em and the skill of golf. Past events have attracted celebrity players including Ray Romano, Phil Ivey, Daniel Negreanu and others.
Mr. Brown brings a strong background to his new role with World Series of Golf, mixing an entrepreneurial background in online and gaming entities with his equally valuable experience in the Fortune 500 environment. He previously helped lead a micro-cap company in the development and launch of an online wagering product, and handled the day to day operations, leading to the eventual sale of the operations to a friendly competitor. He has also developed innovative wagering opportunities, which included a U.S. patent filing for a wagering method of play. Recognized as an industry leader, he has been sought out as a presenter and moderator at a wide range of industry events, including an international mobile gaming conference. Mr. Brown earned his undergraduate degree in business management from Xavier University and a law degree from University of Cincinnati.
