Iván Ballesteros has been involved in the golf industry for more than 25 years. Throughout his professional career he has been exposed to many areas of the business. A professional golf player and coach, he has always been on the sports business side. Of all the experiences, the most enriching has been working alongside Seve Ballesteros from 1997 until his sad passing in May 2011. Ivan has a very international profile, and was an important part of the management of the Ballesteros Group until 2013. He has been in charge of directing international professional golf tournaments in countries such as Spain, Portugal, Ireland, England, France, Thailand, China, Brunei and Japan. He is familiar with the golf course design and construction process thanks to his collaborations with Trajectory (Seve Ballesteros’ golf course design company). From 2003 to 2011 Ivan was Seve Ballesteros’ manager and agent. Executive Vice President of the SB Foundation in 2009 until 2013, Ivan was responsible for the start-up of this organisation and all its projects during those years, highlighting the agreement with Cancer Reseach UK during that time in the UK. In 2013 he joined Entertainment Group Asia in Hong Kong, where he has been based until January 2021. He is currently director of the Ronaldo Nazario Football Academies in Hong Kong. Very active in recent years in online projects, he offers consulting services for investors and golf clients.
