ORLANDO, Fla. (Sept. 29, 2015) — Golfweek today announced its promotion of Senior Writer Alex Miceli to group publisher of Golfweek magazine, Golfweek.com and Golfweek Custom Media effective immediately. Miceli succeeds Jereme Day, who is leaving Golfweek to explore new opportunities.
"With his entrepreneurial mind and solutions-focused attitude, Alex brings a profound wealth of business knowledge and golf industry experience to his new role," said Francis X. Farrell, president and chief executive officer of Golfweek's parent company, Turnstile Media Group. "We are thrilled to have a Golfweek veteran take charge of exploring new opportunities to grow the brand, and we know the business will thrive under his leadership."
Miceli, 57, has a long, illustrious history working in the golf industry, starting in 1993 when he founded Golf.com. He sold the site in 1999 and in 2000 created the Golf Press Association (GPA) – a golf news service that provides content for various media outlets. In 2005 he joined the Golfweek staff as a senior writer where he has since been covering the PGA Tour and golf industry beats. As group publisher, Miceli will oversee Golfweek's entire portfolio of properties and focus on developing next-level products, businesses and ventures that will continue to expand the brand's overall reach.
"Golfweek occupies a very important and influential space in golf media," said Miceli. "This unique position is a major advantage, and I am eager to work with the Golfweek team to develop new content delivery avenues and explore untapped opportunities that will further elevate our iconic brand."
