Norm Spitzig, MCM, is internationally recognized as a successful entrepreneur, leading business consultant, and eloquent, visionary, and humorous speaker on a variety of important business and lifestyle topics. His groundbreaking book, Perspectives on Club Management, now over a quarter-century old, continues to inspire and challenge private club owners, directors, managers, and students around the world. Norm, qua Clive Endive Ogive IV, is also the more recent author of two hilarious and insightful books, Private Clubs in America and around the World and Murder and Mayhem at Old Bunbury, both of which are available at www.CliveEndiveOgiveIV.com, Amazon, and fine (and not-so-fine) bookstores everywhere.
Norm’s leadership and professional contributions to the worldwide private club industry have been varied and significant. Elected a national director of the Club Managers Association of America (CMAA) in 1989, he served as its national president in 1995, the same year he became one of the six original general managers to earn the prestigious lifetime Master Club Manager (MCM) designation.
Norm currently serves as a principal and senior partner in Master Club Advisors, publisher of the premier newsletter for leaders in the worldwide private club industry, Club Management Perspectives, and now regarded by more and more leaders in the global private club industry as the “general manager executive search firm of choice.” Norm’s Board of Directors’ Leadership Orientations and Strategic Planning Sessions have been very well received at national, regional and local meetings of many professional associations as well as great individual private clubs on six continents. He has the singular honor of having been twice named the club industry’s Educator of the Year.
Norm resides in the historic town of Mount Dora, Florida, with his bride, Cody, and chocolate Labrador, Lucy. He may be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org, www.NormSpitzig.com, and www.MasterClubAdvisors.com.
