General Manager/COO (GM/COO) Position description
The GM/COO at Green Hills Country Club (GHCC) is best described as a COO and has full responsibility for all aspects of operations. The new leader will be effectively managing all resources and reporting to the Board of Directors and the President who can best be described as a Board Chair in the governance model the club desires, and is expected to focus on member satisfaction and be the embodiment of an “exceptional member-centric experience.” Supporting and effectively working with a large number of committees, who are important part of GHCC’s long history and success, is also a necessary and important skill set.
The GM/COO will lead the management team, many of whom have many years of tenure at the Club, be representative of modern management ‘metric-oriented’ practices, and indirectly supervise all employees of the Club while intuitively promoting a positive, engaging and highly competent service culture in all operations. The successful new GM/COO at GHCC will need to have especially strong skills in “mentoring” and “holding accountable” a senior staff and group of meaningfully engaged employees. The Club membership has a high regard for its staff, and the enhanced continuance of an energized, well-trained, committed team is critical for continued success. A sincerely engaged, personally invested, instinctual style is particularly important for one’s success at Green Hills.
He/she is expected be an interactive fact and metric based “thought partner” with the Board and Committees, working closely with both groups as collectively they make decisions and set strategic direction for the long-term well-being of the membership. Like many clubs, GHCC has many new, younger members with families and the balance of tradition with relevance to today’s member needs and expectations is a critical success factor. The diversity in member age, vocation, wealth, avocation, and utilization make the environment at the Club both dynamic and, at times, challenging for club management.
He/she must be a proactive leader in GHCC’s membership recruitment and retention efforts. It is critical that s/he understands the local market and economy. The candidate must be comfortable and competent being an integral and proactive part of developing relationships that lead to membership interest, retention and/or business opportunities, and is effective in orienting new members so that their initial experience with GHCC results in constant use of the Club. S/he must have the ability and acumen to expand the Club’s catering operation both to members and outside events to increase catering revenues and profitability.
He/she must possess great food and beverage skills with the ability to combine Green Hills first class facilities with excellent cuisine and service to provide a full-service offering to members and outside events. He/she must have the ability to foster a culture of genuine hospitality at the Club
Additionally, the new GM/COO must be a professional and highly respectful in his/her personal style, demeanor and presence, and someone who recognizes and is comfortable interacting with all demographics of members, staff and other constituents who contribute to the success of the Club; name recognition is a foundation of such success and this style must be a critical competency of the top executive. He/she must be able to clearly and intuitively “walk the talk,” exemplifying how to perpetuate a true top “Member Experience” commensurate with what should be one of the top family-oriented country clubs.
Also, critically important is for the GM/COO to have especially strong and verifiable financial skills and acumen. With the club’s near-term focus on improving the overall financial condition, the GM must be a very astute capital resource allocator. Effective communication skills, both verbally and written are also of high importance as s/he will be the primary communicator of important Club information.
INITIAL PRIORITIES OF THE NEW GM/COO
The Club is strongly interested in the best candidates, regardless of where they currently live. The key attributes, as outlined above, include the proven ability to continue to elevate services, programming and execution of a well-defined “mission.”
Education: A college graduate, with Certified Club Manager (CCM) designation is highly desirable.
Salary & Benefits:
Salary is open and commensurate with qualifications and experience. The club, along with the typical CMAA benefits, offers an excellent bonus and benefit package.
