Strategic Advisor

• Zach is a Strategic Advisor at Lagniappe, focusing on concept expansion, real estate development, and operations.


• First joined Topgolf in 2011 as Development Associate, when the company had only four open venues in the U.S.


• Tasked with expanding Topgolf’s presence country wide, he rose through the ranks to become Vice President of Real Estate Development in early 2015, after opening 35+ venues in 10+ states.


• He then stepped into the role of Chief Operating Officer of Topgolf International, helping expand the concept globally. Over 18 months in that role, he worked side by side with international partners in four countries to tee up deals for a potential 30 venues, while he and his best-in-class team imbued Topgolf’s culture and best practices in them to ensure consistency in each guest’s experience, regardless of which continent you played on.


• Zach has overseen over $1bn in development worldwide, managing extended teams of over 100 people, all while maintaining a healthy 50 handicap on the golf course. No, that is not a typo; he makes Charles Barkley look like Tiger Woods.


• A graduate of New York University (BA) and Southern Methodist University (MBA), Zach calls Dallas home. When not working (which is rare), you may find him escaping the Texas heat by curling up with a good book (currently working through his 4th reading of Folly and Glory by Larry McMurtry) or watching his beloved Texas Rangers.
