Iomic USA appoints Read the Greens for public relations services

SANTA ANA, Calif. -- IOMIC USA, manufacturer of innovative, revolutionary and dynamically designed grips, announced that the company has retained Vanessa Price and Tracy Nackel with Read the Greens, Golf Media. The team will be responsible for creating a comprehensive communications plan targeted at the media as well as retail.

"2013 is going to be monumental for us. We have new products, new people, and now, new promoters. We're thrilled to have the Read the Greens team on our side. Their enthusiasm, product knowledge and deep relationships within the golf industry, will help the company reach its next level of goals," said Tak Yamamoto, Vise President of Sales of IOMIC USA.

IOMIC is well-known for their colorful and stylish grips but serious golfers use them because of the "IOMAX" technology, a proprietary compound that provides a soft feel with control. It is also highly waterproof and doesn't fade. IOMAX also provides adhesiveness, and is naturally white in color which allows for a full spectrum of color - IOMIC's signature trait.

"This is a great company with great products. We're thrilled to be working with them. When Tracy and I decide to take on a new client, it is imperative that the product be an original, not a 'me too' product and IOMIC is original and it performs. On the PGA and LPGA Tours combined, they have over 150 professionals playing their grips. These professionals want the best and they choose IOMIC," said Price.
