Glen Head, NY (PRWEB) May 22, 2008
After an exhaustive search for a new General Manager, North Shore Country Club announced its decision to hire Mr. Ben Ghesquiere from among an extensive field of candidates.
Subsequent to graduating with a Hotel-Management degree from the Glion Hotel School in Switzerland in 1993, Mr. Ghesquiere accumulated a wide professional background at luxury hotel/resort facilities throughout the world. The Glion Hotel School in Switzerland is often referred as one of the top 3 such Hotel schools of its kind.
Mr. Ghesquiere brings extensive international experience to the North Shore management team. He has held management positions in the international resort industry including The Meridien and Claridge's in London, as well as Aman Resorts in Indonesia.
The club believes his unique background will permit him to quickly assimilate to the traditional style and character of the North Shore Country Club.
Mr. Ghesquiere has most recently held an interim general-management position at Montclair Golf Club in New Jersey.
Mr. Barry Ross, club president, stated: "Our decision to engage Mr. Ghesquiere was met with universal approval by both the Search Committee and the Board of Governors. Clearly, his application stood head and shoulders above the rest. We look forward to a mutually beneficial relationship that will last for many years to come."
"I am pleased to have won the trust and confidence of this very special club," stated Mr. Ghesquiere. "North Shore has an incredible reputation as one of the finest. Our mission to provide a unique golf resort-experience to our members, while maintaining a family-friendly atmosphere, is one in which I feel quite capable of helping to achieve."
North Shore Country Club is a private-equity club located directly on the Long Island Sound. Membership is by invitation only.
