CMAE President and CEO of Roehampton Club, Marc Newey, has
become the first club manager outside North America to be awarded
Certified Chief Executive (CCE) status by the Club Managers
Association of America (CMAA).
The Certified Chief Executive (CCE) designation was developed as
an augment to the Certified Club Manager (CCM) designation, which
is seen as the "hallmark of professionalism" in the club industry
After achieving his CCM in 2012, Marc has successfully passed
the BMI Tactical Leadership course at Cornell University and
Strategic Leadership Course at the Harvard Club in Boston as well
as completing all the CPD credits necessary. The CCE award is the
pinnacle in the worldwide Club management industry.
Currently there are 329 Certified Chief Executives in the USA
and over 10 in Canada, with Marc being the first European club
manager to achieve the designation.
'It has taken five years to achieve but has been a fun
experience in doing so. I have learnt so much and try each day to
use that knowledge to the benefit of Roehampton Club. It shows that
after achieving CCM you can keep on learning and improving. CMAA
and CMAE have been so supportive as I wanted to lead the way for
other European Managers to try and achieve the qualification. The
CMAE MDP education pathway is brilliant for developing your club
managerial career.' said a very proud Newey.
Jason Koenigsfeld, Sr. Vice President, Professional Development
at CMAA commented 'Congratulations to Marc Newey on achieving his
Honor Society and CCE designation. A true testament to Marc's
commitment to continuing education as he is the first European to
meet these global milestones. Of particular note, is his
