Club Benchmarking exists because we believe that when club leaders elevate fact over opinion, the result is healthier clubs, more empowered general managers and boards that are properly equipped to focus on strategic issues. The concept originated in the Boardroom of a private club in response to a clear and urgent need for facts to guide the decision-making process.
It started with our core Financial & Operational Benchmarking Platform which was developed as an online management tool to help clubs quickly and accurately assess financial and operational performance. Co-founders Ray Cronin and Russ Conde established the company in Boston, MA in 2009. In 2017, Dr. Jim Butler joined the team as CEO to develop a range of data-centric products and services designed to help clubs meet the future with confidence.
