Puttshack, the tech-driven indoor mini golf operator, has announced a restructure of its executive team, assigning new roles and responsibilities to Logan Powell and Hugh Knowles.

Logan Powell, in addition to his role as group CFO, has been named Puttshack’s UK president. Having joined the company in 2019, Powell has become increasingly more involved with all aspects of the business, with his financial, strategic and operational leadership reportedly proving invaluable as the company navigates the Covid-19 pandemic and looks to continue Puttshack’s growth.

Hugh Knowles has been appointed UK managing director and will continue to lead on UK growth while helping to facilitate Puttshack’s global expansion. He will also assume responsibility for site operations in the UK. Knowles has a wealth of knowledge and experience in both property and operations, with a career spanning over 25 years in the leisure sector.

“We made the decision to restructure our executive team to facilitate the smooth reopening of our White City and Lakeside venues, ensuring we continued to provide fun, clean and safe experiences to our guests,” says Joe Vrankin, CEO of Puttshack. “We’re also confident that this move will best prepare us for the upcoming year after what has been a very challenging time for the entire hospitality industry. Both Logan and Hugh have been key to Puttshack’s growing success and I am delighted to announce these changes as they more fully reflect their contributions.”

Puttshack’s White City and Lakeside venues are open to the public with a number of Covid-secure measures in place.
