Kathryn H. Milthorpe
Kathy Milthorpe is the Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer for the Ladies Professional Golf Association “LPGA” and The LPGA Foundation, where she is responsible for leading the financial affairs and directing administrative, human resource and strategic planning functions of the Association’s global headquarters. Based in Daytona Beach, Florida, the LPGA is the world’s leading professional golf organization for women. As a member of the LPGA’s Executive Leadership Team, Milthorpe’s impact has been felt across her nearly 28 years with the organization.
Previously, Milthorpe served as the managing director of public affairs for the International Speedway Corporation. Milthorpe has also worked as a tournament director for the PGA Champion's Tour and a Senior Auditor with Price Waterhouse Coopers.
Over her 38-year career, Milthorpe has demonstrated a strong commitment to supporting community, civic and philanthropic causes. She has served as Chairman of the Daytona Regional Chamber of Commerce, Lively Arts Center, Central Florida Sports Commission, St. James Episcopal School and a board member of the Texas A&M Women’s Former Student Network, United Way of Volusia-Flagler Counties and WORC, Inc. She also currently sits on the Board of Directors for the Advent Health Memorial Foundation, Civic League and Daytona Beach Community Foundation.
Milthorpe received the Texas A&M University Mays Business School Distinguished Alumni Award in 2015, was recognized as one of the Sports Business Journal’s Game Changers in 2013 and selected as one of the most influential women in business in Volusia County in 2008. Milthorpe graduated from Texas A&M University with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting. She is married to Michael who serves as tournament director for the American Century Championship and the LPGA’s Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions, and they have two grown daughters Hannah and Chloe. Some of her hobbies include yoga, snow skiing, golf and attending sporting events.
The “Drive On” campaign, the LPGA’s newest marketing initiative, represents women who continue to drive on through adversity to achieve their dreams. It concentrates on commending the LPGA’s nearly 70-year track record of “driving on” to break barriers and provide opportunities for women. “Drive On” is something that resonates with Milthorpe. Throughout her career at the LPGA, she has believed passionately in raising the visibility of the Association and growing opportunities for its members and women in sports. Milthorpe’s broad background and experience has given her the ability to participate in most important Association strategic business initiatives, but the most fulfilling part of her role is having the opportunity to support the members of the Association and work with such a diverse and talented team dedicated to making the LPGA a world class sports organization.
