About

Our Record

Of our placements made during the last decade, over 95% are still in place. We consider long-term success of candidates a key measure of our value. We follow up regularly with clients and candidates to ensure that the new hire is working well.

Our consulting work in the last sixteen years has encompassed operational reviews, new club startups, board governance issues, performance management and executive coaching. The relationships we build and the success of our solutions-oriented approach frequently lead to multiple assignments for particular clients ranging over a period of years.

“Replacing a long-term, well-liked general manager is a daunting task. But Kirk Reese turned our challenge into a pleasurable, learning experience, which ultimately resulted in recruiting a new manager with the background and expertise to take our club the next level. Kirk led us on a journey that was rigorous and laser-focused on cultural fit for long-term success. His insight and experience in club operations was invaluable to our team, and his genuine interest in helping us succeed made him an outstanding partner. We would highly recommend Denehy Club Thinking Partners for recruiting, and will likely engage them again for strategic planning services.”
