One of the first things I did as Chair of our GM Search Committee was to interview the prior search committee members. Upon learning that several members were not totally pleased with the outcome attributed to the search firm that presented our departing GM, we established that our first task was to source alternatives and select a search firm that we were confident would understand the needs of Two Rivers Country Club and partner with us throughout the process. After an extensive review of multiple firms, the Search Committee unanimously selected GSI Executive Search to be that partner. Our primary reasons for selecting GSI were its long history of serving the private club industry, its extensive list of satisfied clients, its well-documented process, the guarantee we received, and the personal relationship between TRCC and two of their executives (Manny Gugliuzza and Ned Welc) who would work side-by-side with us both during and after the search.
The result was an impressive list of candidates to fill our vacancy. The process, the regular updates we received, and the final outcome made the whole search much less stressful than some of us anticipated. The final candidates were extraordinary in their qualifications. Our new GM has hit the ground running and his engaging and personable style of leadership has quickly won over both our Members and our staff. Our Club is more vibrant and this has led to improved Club financials in only 6 months. I would highly recommend GSI Executive Search for any future recruitment.
