The Golf Course Builders Association of America has promoted Justin Apel into the role of executive director.
The move was made effective at GCBAA’s general membership meeting at the Golf Industry Show in Orlando. Apel replaces Paul Foley, who recently announced his retirement from the post, which he had held since 2006.
“I’m excited to lead GCBAA into what will be a defining period for the association,” Apel said. “I intend to use my knowledge of associations, government and technology to continue the advancement of GCBAA.”
Since 2006, Apel has served GCBAA as executive assistant and most recently as assistant executive director.
