2020 Board Member, Jim Getgey

Board Member Jim Getgey

Jim is a native of Cincinnati and a first-time APTA board member, serving as the Sponsorship Committee Chair. He found paddle late in his career (thanks to a push from Andy and Michael Todd) and his passion for the sport continues to grow each year. He has contributed articles to Platform Tennis Magazine and has chaired the Men’s GCPTA Championships the last few years. While his home club of Wyoming Golf Club only has two courts, he continues to look for opportunities to grow the game locally and across the country.

His career in sports marketing included a 10-year run with the Philadelphia Phillies, a stint with the PGA Tour TPC Network, a vice chair of the Nationwide Tour Chiquita Classic, and he will happily share many stories from his tenure in the sports world. Jim also spent 18 years with the Hearst Corporation overseeing the digital sales/marketing efforts of 31 TV stations. Currently, he is building a leadership company, thanks to his affiliation with the John Maxwell team.

The Getgey household unfortunately does not have other platform tennis aficionados. His wife of 29 years, Amy, is busy in the real estate world while his two daughters (Isabella and Katerina) are both working hard in school, as well as enjoying their friends.

Jim is very excited to showcase platform tennis to some of the top brands and bring new sponsors into the sport. He would welcome any support, contacts, or collaboration as growing the game benefits us all.
