Former Powerhouse™ Brand Manager to Lead the Industry's Hottest Ball Brand
Effective today, Jeff Ussery will serve as the brand manager
for Hammer and Robby's. Ussery has spent the last year as the company's Powerhouse™
brand manager and the last two years as a master instructor of Powerhouse™ Training Clinics.
"Jeff has a contagious energy that has certainly positively influenced the rebranding
of our Powerhouse™ brand," said Bob Reid, vice president of marketing. "He's the
perfect person to lead the Hammer brand and to leverage the staying power of Robby's
products in the industry."
Ussery shared, "I'm thrilled to take this new role and continue to grow the market
share that both brands represent. I've had Hammer in my bag for 20 years and it's
an exciting thing to head the development of a brand that's been instrumental
in my game since day one. Hammer holds the top seed in today's bowling ball market
and we have no plans to relinquish this position."
"On the Robby's side, this brand has been an industry mainstay my entire bowling
career. It's reputation for quality and bowler success will continue to hold true
during my watch."
Ussery is a 2000 graduate of the University of Kansas, where he bowled on the
men's team, and a former pro shop owner and operator. He has also bowled several
amateur tournaments including the True Amateur Tournament and the Mini Eliminator.
Prior to joining Ebonite International as a master instructor for Powerhouse™
Training Clinics hosted at the Robby's manufacturing facility in Columbia, Tenn.,
he worked with Jayhawk Bowling Supply's pro shop equipment division for four years.
He and his wife live in Clarksville, Tennessee.
