Meredith Lemerand (B.S. 05) of Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas named top retailer
March 01, 2011

Meredith Cogbill Lemerand (B.S. 2005), retail manager at Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas, has been recognized by the Association of Golf Merchandisers for the organization's highest honor, "Top Retailer," at the 2011 PGA Merchandise Show held recently in Orlando, Florida.


Lemerand also received the  "Best Overall Special Initiative" award for her concept of using fashion basics and adding flair with high-fashion pieces as the engine to drive traffic in the Resort's golf pro shop.   The AGM is a group formed in 1989 whose 1,000 plus members are comprised of the best retailers in golf including manufacturers, designers, general managers, directors of golf, head golf professionals, buyers, merchandisers and directors of retail.


Lemerand , a graduate of UNT merchandising program, joined the Resort in May 2005. She and her staff provide the primary retail outlet for the 400-acre, 431-room Resort and 1,600-member private club that is home to the annual HP Byron Nelson Championship, a PGA TOUR event.

Since her tenure at the Resort, the golf pro shop has maintained its status as a Top 100 Pro Shop/Top 25 Resort Pro Shop by Golf World magazine. This year, her submission for this designation, was awarded "Best Entry."


Lemerand credits UNT for her strong foundation and training in retail merchandising. "I find immeasurable value in the degree that  I earned and the knowledge I gained at UNT," says Lemerand. "I draw on my academic training experiences on a daily basis," she adds.  No doubt, this UNT graduate has  mastered the art of merchandising "to a tee."
