Posted on: June 3, 2021 | Read Time: 4 minutes

Boca West Country Club is widely recognized as the #1 Private Residential Club Lifestyle in the world, but it didn’t achieve this success all on its own. Boca West earned its stellar reputation through the leadership of General Manager Matthew Linderman over the past 16 years. In addition to many other accolades, Linderman was just awarded Business Leader of the Year by the Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce, and his consistent, exemplary leadership skills are appreciated by the Members and Staff at Boca West. Here’s a glimpse into how he made Boca West #1.

Leadership from the Start

Since coming to Boca West in 2005, CEO Matthew Linderman has made an ever-lasting impression on this community. Ever so modest, Linderman credits Boca West’s success to its past Board of Governors. Though his humility only exemplifies his leadership style, it is his forward-thinking mentality that gets the job done. Knowing what members want in a Club is paramount for its success, and Linderman prioritizes engaging with members which exudes through the team behind him. Through a firm belief in leadership by visibility, time spent listening to members’ experience and lifestyle at Boca West provides longevity in leadership.

Persevering through Hardship

Linderman recognizes that last year was filled with many hardships, and most members struggled to properly engage and stay connected in the community. During these unprecedented times, the Club organized virtual events, such as preparing a meal with the chef via Zoom, and fitness-oriented activities in open spaces, large enough to properly social distance. The goal was to continually involve members within the community safely, mentally, and physically.

Back to the Roots

Believing in an old-school management style, Linderman values transparency among members and employees. In his eyes, respect for employees is what keeps operations running smoothly. Focusing on prospective residents and acknowledging their choice of location, Linderman and the team pride themselves on showing unyielding leadership, as it is imperative in the decision-making process of future homebuyers. He understands that the residents at Boca West are there for social engagement and a healthy lifestyle, and through his leadership, Boca West continues to thrive.
