Client Testimonial

"For nearly 20 years, I have had the pleasure of working with Stephen Tharrett in one form or another. Initially, Steve was responsible for my coming to work at ClubCorp in 1987. During my 13 years with ClubCorp, Steve served as a mentor to me and was responsible for a great deal of my professional development. I had the honor of serving on an advisory council for ClubCorp at Steve’s direction and was able to see Steve’s talents and contributions to ClubCorp and the athletic and sports industry first-hand. Our company, Zoom, Inc., hired Steve’s company, Club Industry Consulting, to develop a comprehensive business plan and investment memorandum. The finished product greatly exceeded our expectations. He was timely, thorough, dependable and scored a bullseye with his understanding of our business model, demographics and growth potential within our young industry. I would highly recommend Steve and his company. He has a comprehensive knowledge of operations, marketing, business development, financial analysis and investment expectations, plus a humble confidence that enables him to ask the right questions in order to completely understand your business."
