Stringer takes on expanded role with Nicklaus Design

Nicklaus Design Paul Stringer now will oversee day-to-day operations of the firm under a management reorganization plan unveiled Oct. 23.
Stringer was named executive vice president and will assume duties previously performed by longtime Nicklaus executive Tim Kenny, who now becomes executive vice president of the NicklausMilstein Fund. Created two years ago by Howard Milstein, chairman and CEO of New York Private Bank & Trust, the fund will pursue development and investment opportunities for The Nicklaus Cos.
As part of the reorganization, Gary Nicklaus, one of company founder Jack’s four sons, was appointed vice chairman of The Nicklaus Cos., the parent of Nicklaus Design.   
Stringer is a former golf professional and club general manager with over 25 years of experience in the golf industry. He previously was senior vice president of business development and supervised Nicklaus Design’s Asia operations.
Kenney, who joined Nicklaus Design in 1986, has been credited with helping the company grow into the world’s largest golf architectural firm.
Despite a struggling world economy that has brought golf construction to a virtual halt on several continents, Nicklaus Design this year has signed 22 contracts for projects, including 16 projects across China, Korea and India.
