Today’s spotlight: Dawn Grove

Vice President and corporate counsel

Karsten Manufacturing

Dawn Grove is vice president and corporate counsel for Karsten Manufacturing Corporation, parent company of PING (a top global golf equipment brand) and related subsidiaries. Gov. Doug Ducey appointed her to chair the Workforce Arizona Council in 2016 through the present.  Grove also chairs the Arizona Chamber of Commerce & Industry.

Lesson learned in 2020:My takeaway is how precious time with people is, and how nothing is more valuable than the people we are blessed to meet.  Being a leader is all about caring for and serving people, and now I serve with greater urgency, never knowing when our last moments together might be.”

Source of pride: “Using my legal and problem-solving skills to help our family businesses succeed so we can give philanthropically and serve our community.  I’m proud our family and team manufacture PING golf clubs in Arizona that bring joy to golfers worldwide, and I love being able to serve in ways such as helping job seekers — especially veterans and returning citizens — obtain the skills needed to help many local job creators flourish.”

Surprising fact: “I am a huge fan of country music and of musical theater. Although I love golf as well and have the best clubs possible, my golfing skills are still not up to par.”
