    Great White Shark Opportunity Fund is part of Norman’s Great White Shark Enterprises, which includes a variety of businesses, including eyewear, clothing, premium beef, event management, and real estate development.

    60-year old Norman, a World Golf Hall of Fame member with 91 worldwide victories, has been dubbed “The Great White Shark” for his blond hair and aggressive golf style.

    He will lead the investment fund with three employees of his company – David Chessler, Jack Schneider and President Bart Collins, Norman’s long-time business manager and agent.

    Chessler, who will serve as the fund’s chief investment officer and managing director, has teamed with Norman on investments in recent years and managed a $US100 million portfolio of senior secured loans as managing director of Sarasota, Florida-based DC Leasing and Jordyn Holdings.

    Norman’s new fund will invest in public and private US-based and foreign businesses. The fund will target companies with less than $US25 million in revenues that are profitable, and with a good management track record, investing between $US1 million to $US10 million, according to the fund’s website.

    Greg Norman is also on the advisory board of Evans & Partners, manager of the NRL’s $50 million sustainability/future fund.
