Forty Under 40 memories: Jeff Price
Chief Commercial Officer, PGA of America
Selected to Forty Under 40 classes in 1999 and 2000 when he was an executive at Mastercard
What do you remember most about being named to Forty Under 40?
I remember two things specifically — first, I was incredibly honored to be part of the inaugural class. Second, feeling a bit overwhelmed to be part of such a talented group of young executives.
On a more humorous note, I’ll never forget Arliss (Robert Wuhl) busting my chops publicly at the first awards ceremony. And who doesn’t appreciate Abe’s yearly stand-up routine at the event — always fun and entertaining.
What impact did it have on your career?
It has helped to foster great relationships in the sports industry through time spent with other Forty Under 40 winners over the years at SBJ events.
What does being selected for Forty Under 40 mean for professional development of young executives?
It is one of the highest honors in the sports industry and an endorsement of the hard work and dedication it takes to become part of this distinct club.
