Elliott joins team at Crown Sports
Published January 3, 2011
Jeremy Elliott has joined player representation agency Crown Sports Management as vice president of player relations.
The former Career Sports executive will work with many of Crown's top golf clients, who include Davis Love III, Stewart Cink, Lucas Glover and Boo Weekley, among others.
Elliott spent the last six years building Career Sports' golf division in Atlanta. He brought in players such as Matt Kuchar, Ryuji Imada and Parker McLachlin to establish the agency in golf before leaving late in 2010.
Elliott, a former golfer at the University of North Carolina, joins a Crown Sports team led by CEO Mac Barnhardt and president Jimmy Johnston.
Crown's stable of golfers has won two majors in the last two years — Glover won the U.S. Open and Cink won the British Open, both in 2009.
Crown is based in Sea Island, Ga., and Elliott will work from Chapel Hill, N.C.
