Brunswick Announces Reorganization of Sales Team

by Bob Johnson 0

Brunswick officials have announced multiple changes to the worldwide sales team in order to support customer demand across the Capital Equipment division. Effective immediately:

  • John Roush has been named Vice President of North American Capital Equipment Sales.
  • Dan Borgie will lead the U.S. and Canada new center development sales team as Director of New Center Sales.
  • Michael Postema will assume the role of Director of Modernization Sales for the U.S. and Canada.
  • Gary Smith has been appointed Vice President of International Sales.

“Over the last few years, we have experienced unprecedented growth in new center development and expect that trend to continue as more investors look to bowling to satisfy consumer demand for active, social entertainment,” said Brent Perrier, Brunswick Bowling Products CEO. “In addition, the adoption rate for Sync Scoring has been the fastest of any scoring system in the industry, and we see that momentum ramping up as more centers experience the power of the industry’s only cloud-based scoring and management system.”

Added Perrier: “We are fortunate to have the best talent in the industry and are able to apply their specialties where needed in order to lead the bowling industry into an era of innovation and global expansion.”

Bob Johnson has received more national writing awards than any other bowling writer — close to 70 over the course of his 40-year career. He began at age 16 as a staff writer and then assistant editor for the weekly Pacific Bowler newspaper in his native California, and within three years was writing feature stories for Bowlers Journal. He has written for the magazine ever since, except for a five-year span when he was hired as the founding editor of another magazine. He moved to Chicago in 2000 and spent 13 years in the Windy City, including five as Bowlers Journal’s Editor. In 1975, Johnson received the Robert E. Kennedy Award as California’s top undergraduate high school journalist. Five years earlier, on the lanes, he had shared the Bantam Division Doubles championship in the Orange County Junior Bowling Association Championships. Today, he continues to work full-time for Bowlers Journal as its Senior Editor, to write his popular “Strikes Me” column, and to edit Luby Publishing Inc.’s weekly business-to-business Cyber Report.
