Change can require time to navigate. A club searching for a new General Manager faces pressure to “complete the search”, but with an Interim General Manager, it’s possible instead to “Strengthen the Search”.

In an effort to provide a full list of solutions for our client clubs, KOPPLIN KUEBLER & WALLACE recommends Club Leadership Alliance (CLA) for securing top Interim General Managers and supporting operational oversight utilizing industry proven best practices.

Strategic Stewardship

Boards have a responsibility to look more deeply into paving the way for their new General Manager to be successful. Bringing in an Interim General Manager empowers a club’s board with the ability to address critical opportunities to strengthen operations prior to the arrival of a new General Manager/COO.

Dan Miles, CCM, CCE leads Club Leadership Alliance in providing oversight and expert management of Interim Management Solutions. Dan’s professional background includes work for top clubs nationwide as a longtime General Manager and consultant for KOPPLIN KUEBLER & WALLACE and Club Benchmarking. He has served as an interim general manager himself and is uniquely positioned to leverage his expertise and industry-recognized best practices in his role with CLA.

Miles managed clubs among the best in America for more than 35 years. Dan achieved the Certified Club Manager designation in 1989, later earning Honor Society status and the Certified Club Executive title. As a strong supporter of the industry, Dan served on the Board of Directors of both the Ohio Valley and Greater Cleveland Chapters of CMAA.

Since beginning a career in Club Management in 1984, Dan’s advancement and professional experience is particularly noteworthy as he went on to successively manage four prestigious quality private member-owned clubs all holding the Platinum Club of America Designation: The Country Club (OH), Denver Country Club (CO), Medinah Country Club (IL), and Bonita Bay Club (FL).
