HANS HUSCHITT

SALES MANAGER

HANS HUSCHITTCURRENT TOWN: Hilton Head Island
HOMETOWN: Los Angeles
WHAT HE DOES: I am responsible for selling sponsorships for the RBC Heritage with a primary focus on new business. My favorite part of my job is meeting so many great people throughout the state of South Carolina and forming great relationships and partnerships. 
FAVORITE HERITAGE MEMORY: 2015 was my first Heritage and surpassed any and all expectations I had, creating memories I will cherish forever. My all-time favorite thing about the Heritage is seeing everyone come together in such a special way. Whether it was families, college friends, sponsors entertaining their key clients, etc., every single person at the Heritage has their own amazing experience. 

ANGIE TAYLOR

DIRECTOR OF OUTREACH & STATEWIDE INITIATIVES

ANGIE TAYLORCURRENT TOWN: Hilton Head Island
HOMETOWN: Pittsburgh
WHAT SHE DOES: Works primarily with the Heritage Classic Foundation’s charitable giving programs, the Heritage Classic Foundation Scholars and government relations. 
FAVORITE HERITAGE MEMORY:  It is hard to pick that favorite shot or your favorite player or your favorite moment because there are so many of them.  For 32 years, I have enjoyed this tournament on many different levels — as a spectator, as a volunteer and as a staffer.  I think my husband would agree that one our favorite memories was of our son’s second Heritage, 27 years ago — he was just learning to walk, and he decided he wanted to push the empty stroller around the course by himself.  It was a very enjoyable day as a family.  The weather was beautiful, he was entertained and we actually watched a lot of golf.  And to top it off, he slept really well that night! 

ANGELA MCSWAIN

MARKETING AND COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR

ANGELA MCSWAINCURRENT TOWN: Hilton Head Island
HOMETOWN: Coventry, Rhode Island
WHAT SHE DOES: Coordinates marketing for the tournament.
FAVORITE HERITAGE MEMORY: My favorite moment was in 2006, when Aaron Baddeley spoke at the Sunday morning church service. He was so honest in talking about how his PGA Tour career wasn't going as planned, and how he hadn't met his own or other people's expectations. Then later that day, he won our event for his first victory on tour.

HOMETOWN: Northampton, Massachusetts

FAVORITE HERITAGE MEMORY: My goodness — it’s hard to choose a favorite as every year holds special memories. One that stands out is 2005, when Peter Lonard from Australia won. It was his first U.S. victory and he was thrilled. In Australia, it’s traditional for the winner to treat the tournament staff to a celebration toast, so he invited all of us to a fun-filled evening at the Quarterdeck, where we raised several glasses to the new champion.
