Liberty Corner, New Jersey, United States: Stuart Francis has been elected to serve as the 66th President of the United States Golf Association (USGA).

The election took place at the Association’s Annual Meeting in the Village of Pinehurst, North Carolina.

Francis will serve a three-year term leading the USGA Executive Committee, which serves as the policy-making board and provides strategic direction and oversight to the Association’s full-time staff, which is based in Liberty Corner, New Jersey.

“The opportunity to serve the game that has given so much to me is truly a great honour,” Francis said. “I look forward to leading an exceptionally dedicated group of fellow Executive Committee members as we work in close alignment with CEO Mike Davis, USGA staff, volunteers and members to achieve our mission to champion and advance the game.”

Francis is currently a Senior Managing Director for Evercore, a global investment banking advisory firm, where he leads the firm’s Silicon Valley-based technology practice. He is entering his sixth year on the Executive Committee and has served as Chairman of the Championship Committee for the last four years. He has also served on the USGA’s Compensation, Equipment Standards and Governance committees.

An accomplished amateur golfer, Francis competed in three US Amateur Championships, two NCAA Championships and three Canadian Amateur Championships. He earned his BA from Princeton University, where he was named First Team All-Ivy League and All-American as co-captain of the men’s golf team, and later earned an MBA from Stanford University.
