Brown will run the daily operations of both organizations which includes managing and overseeing tournaments and events, driving new membership, and working with the boards of directors on strategic direction. Brown will oversee about 70 volunteers and report to the boards of each organization.
"I am excited and honored by this opportunity to head two organizations that have been dedicated to promoting the game of golf in the region," Brown said. "I have been around golf most of my life and I am looking forward to working with both boards to rejuvenate and continue the great traditions of both organizations."
Brown succeeds Michael Cumberpatch who is retiring. He has been Executive Director of both organizations since 2015 and will continue to volunteer.
"I am excited to have Moose coming on board as my successor," Cumberpatch said. "His passion for and knowledge of the game combined with a strong background in sales and business development will ensure the continued growth and future well being of both MAGA and WMGA."
Ron Bubes, President of MAGA, said the organization is "excited that Moose will be leading us forward. We also thank Mike for his leadership and friendship for the past seven years and wish him the best in retirement. We are thrilled he will continue to be involved as a volunteer and will continue to oversee the US Open Final Qualifier that has been held at Woodmont CC since 1987."
Bruce Nordstrom, President of WMGA, said the organization is "thrilled to have Moose on board. He has some ideas that we feel will build on our efforts to grow the game of golf in the Washington Metropolitan area."
