Phyllis Court Club has announced the appointment of Chris Hogan as their new Chief Executive and Chief Secretary.
The Board of Directors, known as ‘Council’, at the private members club based in Henley-on-Thames carried out a comprehensive search process to recruit for the role. Chris, who will take up his position on 22nd July 2019, was selected by virtue of his experience in private members clubs.
Chris joins Phyllis Court from The Royal Southern Yacht Club where he was Chief Executive and Secretary. Prior to his most recent role Chris was the Chief Executive and Club Secretary at the In & Out (Naval and Military Club) during which time he was also elected as Chairman of the Association of London Clubs.
Commenting on Chris’s appointment, Stan Ainsley, Chairman of the Club, said: “Council and I are very pleased to welcome Chris as the new Chief Executive of Phyllis Court Club. He has enjoyed an accomplished career in the military and has since held executive roles in private members clubs. As a result he has an excellent understanding of our industry. We are confident that his knowledge and skill set make him the right person to lead our management team and staff.”
Chris, who has family in Hampshire, is thoroughly looking forward to joining Phyllis Court at such an important time in the Club’s development and said: “I have known Phyllis Court Club for a number of years and I consider it a privilege to be selected to serve as CEO and Club Secretary. I look forward to the challenges of such a role and my aim of ensuring member satisfaction will underpin all my work.”
