About Us

We are the leading recruiting and consulting firm in the private club industry and have been voted “Best Search Firm of the Year” since 2006 by The BoardRoom magazine.

In addition to executive search, we are a benchmark in private club consulting offering a full range of consulting services. Our Board Dynamics Model has been presented to over 1000 private clubs and communities. Our best practices are respected and regularly highlighted by the leading industry publications & associations.

Our clients and candidates consistently commend us for our clear and open communications, timelines, responsiveness, and expertise. We will be your trusted partners and advisors dedicated to ensuring your success.

We are a founding member of Club Leadership Alliance. Through this partnership, we work together with McMahon Group and Club Benchmarking to effectively serve clubs in all their operational, financial, staffing, strategic, and facility aspects.

What Sets Us Apart?

Our approach has been evolved and perfected since 1996, merging 500+ years of combined expertise with a comprehensive understanding of stakeholders’ needs. We have robust candidate behavior profiling, comprehensive intakes, case studies, and backgrounding measures in place. Both our clients and candidates commend us for our clear and open communications, timelines, responsiveness, and expertise.

We are heavily invested in sourcing candidates. Our team members are very well-connected and committed to supporting each other through their various candidate pipelines. We also have strategic relationships and memberships with associations and other niche groups in addition to making investments in recruiting and search marketing technologies.

Our due-diligence extends well beyond understanding our clients and candidates. We have professionally profiled the talent within our firm and the results identify us as a balanced team that is flexible and adaptable. As a group we maintain a strong connection to the industry, both in the trenches of private clubs visiting over 250+ properties annually, and as stewards of the industry making 200+ educational contributions annually.

Annually, we visit 250+ clubs, touring, learning, and consulting with key leaders in the trenches. We also invest time in several external informational resources for education, conferences, and access to publications. Our partnership with the Club Leadership Alliance has been invaluable, ensuring we have access to updated industry-specific data and trends.
