Knetgolf’s Shaun Shienfield Named eBay Canada’s 2009 Entrepreneur of the Year
Topping more than 300 business leaders supplying significant products on eBay, Shienfield was selected for his role launching Knetgolf into a powerhouse that is the site’s largest golf-ball retailer. “Knetgolf’s business on eBay will help provide more than 20 million balls to 250,000-plus customers in 2009.
“Over the past eight years, we’ve steadily built our eBay business by exceeding customer expectations on price, product quality and service,” says Shienfield. “While it’s gratifying to personally receive this honor, Knetgolf remains focused on growing sales by saving golfers money and delivering first-class shopping experiences.”
Recovered from more than 2,000 exclusive golf resorts mainly in Arizona, California and Nevada, Knetgolf’s balls undergo a proprietary, leading-edge cleansing process to ensure top condition. The refurbished balls from Titleist, Callaway, Nike and others are then graded Mint, “A,” “B” or “C” and offered at half price or better directly to the golf public via eBay and www.knetgolf.com.
Golfers lose more than one billion balls yearly and 4.5 balls per round on average, according to industry estimates.
