Centurion Club has made two key additions to its senior management team.
Jonathan Dickins and Caisa Malmberg join following a successful launch of membership sales at the acclaimed new private club which opened on the outskirts of St Albans mid-way through last year.
Dickins takes up the role of Sales and Marketing Director after spending much of the last 30 years working in a variety of senior positions within the leisure industry. After leaving Cambridge University, he has worked in FMCG, sports sponsorship and management, consumer financial services, resort and leisure management as well as on flagship golf projects at Loch Lomond Golf Club, The Carnegie Club, The London Golf Club, Old Head Golf Links, the Palazzo Arzaga Hotel Golf & Spa, Gary Player Golf Design & Enterprises, the Elea Resort in Cyprus and a number of other prestigious golf developments.
“I am delighted to join Centurion Club after its successful launch last year and firmly believe it is on course to being recognised as one of the top clubs in England,” said Dickins.
“I met Managing Director, Scott Evans, several years ago when we worked on membership development at Bearwood Lakes and we have kept in touch ever since. I have been very impressed by the attention to detail he has brought to bear while developing Centurion Club and am sure that it is one of the key elements in its success to date.”
Malmberg joins Centurion Club as Sales and Marketing Executive and will be working with Dickins to build on the healthy initial membership sales. She is originally from Malmo in Sweden where she grew up on a golf course as part of a keen golfing family and is fluent in English, Spanish as well as the three Scandinavian languages.
Malmberg graduated with honours in Marketing with Media Communication from Buckingham University in 2012 but prior to that worked in customer service at Anfi Tauro Golf and Lopesan Meloneras Golf in Spain. She also has extensive experience working as a PR Executive for Golf Marketing Services and as Head of Reception at Tomelilla Golf Club in the south of Sweden.
“This is a great move for me,” confirmed Malmberg. “I got to know Hertfordshire well when I was working for GMS and knew instantly as soon as I saw it that the Centurion Club would be a huge success. The golf course is terrific. The location is wonderful and the way it looks after its members is second to none.”
“I’d like to take this opportunity to welcome both Jonathan and Caisa to Centurion Club and firmly believe their skills, experience and passion for their jobs can help to take the club to the next level.” said Managing Director, Scott Evans.
“This is an exciting time here at Centurion,” he added. “Our new club building is progressing nicely and we have been overwhelmed by all the positive feedback we have been receiving about the golf course. We’re well ahead of where we thought we’d be at this stage in our development.”
The Centurion Club is built on a picturesque parcel of land to the south west of the Roman city of St Albans, close to the M1 and M25 and just half an hour’s drive from the City of London. Its 7,200-yard course only opened for play on July 1, 2013, but has already been hailed as one of the finest new lay-outs in England.
