In addition, he assisted with the opening task force for several Four Seasons properties throughout the company. Other previous employers include the National Hotel in Miami Beach, The Luxury Collection Bal Harbour Beach Resort, Sheraton Biscayne Bay Hotel Miami, the Rainbow Room in New York, and Middle Bay Country Club on Long Island.

A native of Long Island, New York, Mr. Linderman resides in Boynton Beach with his wife and two daughters.

“The members are delighted to have Matthew as the new COO/GM at Boca West. He is beyond competent and hard working. His extensive knowledge of private country club management, along with his experience in 5 star hospitality at some of the country’s top hotels and restaurants means that our members will get the very best, whether it is in our tennis programs, in the many restaurants on the club grounds, in the spa and fitness center, on the golf courses or elsewhere at Boca West Country Club,” Howard Liebman, chairman of the board said.

Mr. Linderman helped oversee the construction and design of Boca West’s $50 million Golf and Activities Center, which opened earlier this year. The new center includes multiple restaurants, a golf shop, boutique, multiple function rooms, and state-of-the-art locker rooms.
