Marc Newey CCM, Chief Executive of the prestigious Roehampton Club, has taken over as the President of the Club Managers Association of Europe. The changing of guard took place at the CMAE’s Annual General meeting which was held last week at Croke Park in Dublin. Marc takes over from Italian Arnaldo Cocuzza CCM who had overseen substantial changes in the Association’s focus over the last two years.
Marc’s Presidency term will run till 2017 and comes at an exciting time for the Association as Marc explains “I am delighted to have been appointed President, it is a great honour to lead such a progressive organisation. The work the Association has done in recent years to bring high quality executive education to club managers has been exceptional, as our Management Development Programmes go from strength to strength with an ever increasing number of attendees.”
At the AGM Marc set out his plans for the future of CMAE which will see the revision and updating of the Association’s strategic plan, the growth of the delivery of Management Development Programmes and the strengthening of Regional networking. He also wants to see the recognition of good sports club management more into the Association, “since starting our Management Development Programmes in 2011 we have received a tremendous response from our City Club and Golf Club Members, but I am now very keen to get more sports clubs involved so they too can derive the benefits of the high quality education programmes we deliver”
“One of the most exciting events to take place during my term as President is the hosting of the Club Managers Association of America’s BMI International Symposium in London in October 2016.This will be a great educational and networking event for both American and European Club Managers, where the American Club Managers want to see best practice from the best Clubs Europe has to offer.”
