Iain McInally has been appointed General Manager at the IMG managed Raevo Golf & Country Club in Moscow. McInally brings a proven international background of developing and operating high quality golf clubs and resorts and will oversee all aspects of the club’s ongoing development, working alongside both IMG and the club’s Board of Directors.
Formerly Head of European Tour Properties, Iain was responsible for the evolution and delivery of all strategic, operational and marketing support to the network of venues. Prior to this he has held senior management positions at several leading properties around the world, including the Monte Rei Resort in Portugal where he was responsible for developing the brand and ensuring the quality of the operations and membership programmes.
Russell Hannah, Senior Director, IMG Golf, said; “We are delighted to have Iain join the team in Moscow. Raevo is a very special project and as such demanded a candidate with a number of key attributes. With his experience in developing leading golf properties from the ground-up, and ability to implement and deliver high quality membership programmes, Iain is ideally suited for the role and without doubt will play a major part in its ongoing success”
McInally commented; “It is a privilege to have the opportunity to be part of what will undoubtedly be recognised as one of the World’s finest Membership Clubs. To support the vision of the Board with IMG in providing a truly outstanding experience with the most exacting focus on quality throughout will be the overriding objective – which is a challenge I am looking forward to tremendously.”
Currently in the final stages of pre-opening, Raevo is situated in the outskirts of Moscow and features a stunning Jack Nicklaus signature golf course that winds itself through ancient woodland and meandering streams. The luxurious Georgian style Clubhouse offers a range of both social and leisure amenities and the Club is set to become Moscow’s most exclusive, family-orientated retreat.
