Independence Golf Club/Pros Inc.

Highly successful Pros Inc., a Richmond-based sports management and marketing firm, has been around for decades. The firm, now led by Richmond native and golf aficionado Giff Breed, began a relationship with The Fahrenheit Group when Giff Breed (along with his brothers) purchased Independence Golf Club in 2013.

The relationship between Giff and The Fahrenheit Group started with an introduction through a mutual relationship. In addition to being the President of Pros Inc., Giff is also on the board at Kinloch Golf Club in Manakin-Sabot. A fellow board member at Kinloch mentioned The Fahrenheit Group to Giff and the relationship took off from there. 

 

Accounting / Finance Consulting & Talent Acquisition Engagement

“We needed someone with Fahrenheit’s experience and expertise to help us figure out what we had bought,” said Breed. Fahrenheit did such a good job on that project that Giff decided to engage Fahrenheit to help develop a financial model at Kinloch Golf Club as well. Our team was able to take existing data at the club and provide the board and management team information about the business leading to a strategy on how they could generate more revenue and profitability for Kinloch. 

As we worked through the development of these financial models at Kinloch, they found they were in need of an interim Controller to fill a gap until they were able to hire someone on a permanent basis. Fahrenheit was able to leverage a senior consultant to fulfill that role while we also assisted in the search for a permanent Controller.

 

“At both Kinloch and Independence, Fahrenheit was able to help us understand what we were doing,” said Giff. “They were also able to help coach the person at Kinloch that we ultimately hired to fill the Controller position,” he said.

After our success at Kinloch with the Controller position, Giff engaged Fahrenheit to help in the search for a Controller at Independence Golf Club as well. That role was filled with a highly-successful candidate that is working out very well.

“In addition to being very qualified people and professionals, I consider the team at Fahrenheit friends now too. What sets them apart is not only the interest and pride they take in their work, but also the interest they take in your business and the support they give to their clients. They genuinely want their clients to succeed. There is no way an organization could make a mistake with hiring Fahrenheit.”
