USGA Executive Committee Nominations Announced

Liberty Corner, New Jersey, United States: The USGA Nominating Committee has released its proposed slate of 2022 Executive Committee members and officers.

The Executive Committee will again be led by Stu Francis, who will be serving the final year of his three-year term as USGA President, and by Fred Perpall, who has been nominated to serve as President-elect.

In addition, Sinclair Eaddy Jr and Kevin Hammer have each been nominated to serve a three-year term on the USGA Executive Committee, a volunteer group of 15 people that provides strategic and financial oversight as the Association’s policy-making and governance board.

In addition, Perpall, Tony Anderson and Deborah Platt Majoras have all been nominated to serve a second three-year term on the USGA Executive Committee.

The election of Executive Committee members will take place at the USGA Annual Meeting on February 19, in Carlsbad, California.

Francis is currently in his seventh year as a member of the USGA Executive Committee. He is an accomplished amateur golfer who has played in three US Amateur Championships and two NCAA Championships and in 2021 was elected to the Ohio Golf Association Hall of Fame.

Francis earned a BA from Princeton University, where he was co-captain of the varsity golf team and selected to the first team All-Ivy and honorable mention All American teams. He also earned an MBA from Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business.

He is a Senior Managing Director for Evercore, where he leads the firm’s Silicon Valley technology practice. During his business career, he has been an advisor to many leading technology companies, including Dell, Facebook, Google, Qualcomm and Tesla.

Perpall, a native of the Bahamas who now calls Dallas home, has been nominated as President-elect, a position created in 2019 to provide committee leadership succession and continuity. Perpall, currently completing his third year on the Executive Committee, chairs the Championship Committee and serves on the Amateur Status Committee.

Professionally, Perpall is the CEO of The Beck Group, where he leads the firm’s domestic and international architectural design, planning, real estate consultancy and construction businesses. A registered architect, Perpall was elected to the American Institute of Architects College of Fellows in 2016.

He earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Texas at Arlington and is a graduate of the Harvard Business School’s Advanced Management Programme. He played basketball and ran track in college and was a member of the 1994 Bahamian National Basketball Team.

Perpall was a member of the Board of Trustees who helped build Trinity Forest Golf Club in Dallas. The public/private partnership that led to the club’s creation has served as an inspiration within its under-served community, serving as host to Southern Methodist University’s golf programme, numerous charitable tournaments and events for the Dallas chapter of The First Tee.

“I’m excited to work with Stu, Fred, and all the members of the USGA Executive Committee,” said Mike Whan, CEO of the USGA. “I’m grateful for their support of the organisation and our mission and their commitment to and passion for the future of the game.”
