To our clients, candidates, colleagues, associates and friends,

As we all continue to navigate unprecedented challenges presented by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the GSI Executive Search family extends our wishes for blessings of health and safety to you, your loved ones, and others in your professional and personal networks.

As private club search specialists and management veterans, we understand that current difficulties faced by clubs, club professionals, staff members and candidates are multifaceted and profoundly consequential. Indeed, COVID-19 could likely prove to be the most daunting and far-reaching challenge that private club leaders will face in their lifetimes. Yet, every day, we are inspired to learn about innovative initiatives that keep members engaged and informed as this crisis evolves. Likewise, private clubs throughout the country are mobilizing their talent and resources to assist area residents in need and strengthen community connections.

COVID-19 is tough—but we are tougher. Through innovation, perseverance, acts of kindness large and small and sheer fortitude, we will prevail and emerge more connected and resilient than ever.

During this time, and at all times moving forward, please feel free to reach out to our search consultants or management team with questions, concerns or needs you may have. Whether you have a search requirement, an operational or training challenge, or you just want to talk through issues and bounce ideas off our club industry experts, we deeply value our relationship with you, and we want to be of assistance in any way we can. We also encourage you to visit the CMAA website which contains a wealth of COVID-19-related information and resources for your club.
Again, please be safe, healthy and strong.
