Founded in 2002 by Pam Berube and John Lawrence, Tournament Solutions has become a major golf tournament and gifts awards purveyor in the U.S. The company is an industry leader in providing customized tournament gifting packages for member, charity and professional events, as well as for on-site retail. The company offers a wide array of products at every price point, and serves as a one-stop shopping source in golf, offering brands such as TUMI, Kate Spade, Costa and Bose.
“Our mission from inception was to build a company that made life easier for the extremely busy PGA professional by providing a one-stop platform to buy all of their gifts and awards,” said Berube.
“Having a strong parent company like AHEAD gives us the opportunity to continue to expand our business and focus our efforts on continued strategic future growth," Lawrence added.
“John and Pam have built a great company, and we look forward to supporting their growth," said Anne Broholm, CEO of AHEAD. "Their Massachusetts location, customer philosophy, and strong staff made this a well-conceived and strategic investment decision for AHEAD."
Tournament Solutions will remain an independent, wholly-owned subsidiary of AHEAD. The company will remain in the Newburyport, Mass., area under the management of its founding partners.
