Wagner latest to depart IMG’s golf division
Published April 30, 2012, Page 3
It was last June that Mark Steinberg, the head of IMG Golf, said he and the company were parting ways. He eventually landed at Excel Sports Management, where he took with him Tiger Woods and has since signed Matt Kuchar.
Then in October, IMG eliminated Bart Kendall’s job. Kendall, an 18-year IMG veteran, was chief of the consulting business for IMG’s golf clients. IMG said it would no longer have a separate consulting division for golf clients.
During that restructuring last year, Wagner and Clarke Jones were named co-managing directors for the newly named IMG Golf Americas. Jones remains with IMG.
London-based Guy Kinnings and Singapore-based Robbie Henchman oversee global IMG Golf. Kinnings confirmed that Wagner is no longer with the company, as of last week.
Wagner worked as a player representative with Sean O’Hair, Trevor Immelman and Luke Donald, among others, and also worked on IMG’s event business.
