Prince Sports announced the promotion of Matthew Haley to regional vice president, Southern Region. Haley started his career in the tennis industry on the teaching side, managing a professional tennis staff and tennis program for juniors and adults. During his four years as a head tennis pro, he was honored as “Michigan Tennis Professional of the Year” in 1999 for his volunteer work and commitment to the tennis industry.

He brought this passion for the game to his new role as a Territory Sales Manager for Prince Sports in 1999. Since that time, Haley has been developing his career and managing his local territory, increasing profit levels and building relationships.

“Matthew’s passion and drive to succeed, coupled with his commitment to excellence, have enabled him to win numerous sales awards over the years, including the esteemed ‘Rep of the Year’ in 2002,” said Osborn, vice president of Prince Sports, USA. “We are looking forward to him instilling his professional traits and qualities with his new Team in the Southern Region, and taking his career with Prince to the next level in 2006 and beyond.”

In his free time, Haley naturally enjoys playing tennis, in addition to golf and squash. Haley and his family will be relocating to the Atlanta, GA, area in the near future.
