The DGPT is pleased to announce the hiring of Aaron Wilmot as Marketing & Retail Manager for the Disc Golf Pro Tour. Aaron has an extensive business background as an entrepreneur, particularly in retail development through his business Thought Space Athletics. The Tour is excited to have Aaron on board, leading not only retail management and development, but also coordinating the DGPT marketing team.
Aaron’s focus on disc golf started in 2011 as his involvement with the sport was stimulated through competition and participation in the Maine disc golf scene. That interest quickly grew into a love for disc golf and the community that surrounds it and, as an entrepreneur, Aaron put his business chops to work founding Thought Space Athletics, his retail brand that now works on projects across the country. Thought Space has carved out a loyal niche in the disc golf world through creative art, forward-thinking graphic design and strong partnerships and is one of multiple businesses that Aaron has found success with. While the brand will continue, Aaron’s focus will shift to the Disc Golf Pro Tour and marketing a larger brand to a wider audience. A central goal of the marketing team will be to promote events to a wider regional audience and bring new eyes and players into the sport.
Aaron’s efforts have also resulted in partnerships with some of the sport’s biggest companies and players, most recently working with Innova on USDGC retail projects as well as some of the sports top players, like Garrett Gurthie, on collaborations. Aaron is thrilled to join the DGPT team and believes that there are big things in store for the brand as one of the sports biggest platforms sharing “I have learned first hand how having a like minded team can make a common goal that once seemed out of reach, achievable.” With Aaron on board, the DGPT looks forward to achieving a litany of lofty goals in 2020 and beyond.
