The Journey Begins...
At the Ferreira Company, the choice is academic.

Consulting to clubs is both an art and a science.

Dr. Raymond Ferreira, founder and president of the Ferreira Company is uniquely qualified in both of these areas. Not only was he a full-time club manager for 12 years, but he taught at Georgia State University’s School of Hospitality Administration and University of Houston's Hilton College of Hotel and Restaurant Management for two decades. He is also a nationally-recognized academic research expert in the private club industry.
