Evelyn Gruber

Where it all began

The Austrian native started her career in golf tourism quite by chance. With no experience in entrepreneurship, she was literally forced to tackle the reins of Austria's first specialist golf travel business in the mid 90's.

By implementing an innovative and smart shop-in-shop concept with Europe's leading golf store, Evelyn was able to grow her firm into Austria's largest golf tour operator before selling it in 2008.

The Journey Continues

Since then, the "passionate visionary" - as she is called by her peers - continues to work for her only true love - growth of international golf tourism. Albeit more on the consulting side to assist others achieve unprecedented success in this lucrative segment.

As a truly global citizen, Evelyn calls Europe, the US and Asia her home, as she has been commuting across the three continents for the last seven years.

Her travels have taken Evelyn to more than 110 countries, where she stayed in several hotels and played on 2000+ golf courses around the globe. This has tremendously helped her to develop a unique global understanding of the geopolitical business dynamics as well as the macro and micro environment in the various markets; a critical imperative for any successful strategic approach.
