- (1888PressRelease) July 13, 2012 - Jon Flora exemplifies the ideal Scottsdale Country Club president in that he is a visionary, pursues excellence and understands the cost/value reward for risk and, just as importantly, makes for a great leader.
Visionary? Leadership? Value of risk? Here's a great example.

"In less than 12 months we basically eliminated a resignation list at the Scottsdale private golf Club with 131 names on it, sold over 80 golf memberships and generated just shy of $1 million of 'Other Income' for the Scottsdale Country Club.
"With Scottsdale Country Club president Flora, we might never be able to define what 'best' is or means, but we are committed to taking advantage of every opportunity to 'take the Scottsdale private golf Club to the next level,'" Skelton added.
Flora has supported investment in the Scottsdale private golf Club's physical assets, as well as investment in top quality human resources. "Oh yes, Jon's mantra when it comes to Scottsdale private golf club governance and leadership is hire the best people, step back and let them lead the way," Skelton stressed, in reference to that dastardly governance pest called micromanagement.
