Formerly the CEO of Deutsche Bank Americas, Seth Waugh has recently been appointed the role of  Chief Executive Officer of the PGA of America.

The PGA of America is one of the world’s largest sporting organisations with nearly 29,000 PGA Professionals. Waugh’s tasks will include managing the business and organisation’s over all strategy into an exciting new era.

Waugh has served as a Senior Advisor and then a Managing Director at Silver Lake since 2017, a global leader in technology investing. He will continue on as a Senior Advisor to the firm.

“It is an honor and privilege to be invited to lead this remarkable Association into its second century,” said Waugh.

“Like so many, I share a passion for the game that has given so much to me, and in the process, has somehow become a huge influence in my life. The opportunity to work with the nearly 29,000 PGA Professionals and others in the game to give back and to help our beautiful sport evolve is a true gift. I look forward to getting into the field to engage with our Members, learn more about the issues that matter most to them, and look for ways to enhance their careers and lives. I am grateful for the trust that the Officers and the Board are showing in me. It will be exciting to see all the good that we can do together as an Association and an industry.
