Dr. William Ivers, Sr


Dr. Ivers has more than 30 years of experience in the software industry and founded several companies, one of which became an Inc. 500 software marketing firm. He also founded and is now a partner in Venture Builders, a management consulting firm. Dr. Ivers is a national speaker for the Professional Club Marketing Association and a frequent contributor to Boardroom magazine writing about best practices in member communications. Ivers earned a bachelor’s degree in Combined Sciences from Yale University, a Ph.D. in Applied Oceanography from the Scripps Institution, and an OPM Business Management degree from Harvard University.

Bill Ivers, Jr


Before joining Clubessential, Mr. Ivers gained seven years of experience as a project manager, system architect and senior developer working on internet technology and digital branding solutions. Mr. Ivers worked at firms including: Hill Holiday, Zentropy Partners, CAP Gemini and Octagon Technology while consulting for a portfolio of clients: Proctor & Gamble, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Genzyme, Cohn & Wolfe, The San Diego Convention Center and North Pacific Corporation. Mr. Ivers graduated from Colgate University with a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy.

Tom Ivers


Early in his career Mr. Ivers developed software for netcaddy.com and also worked for Cadre Computer Resources, Zentropy Partners and Bruno, Mack & Barclay. In the latter job Tom was tasked with sifting information from massive (terabyte size) databases provided in discovery for major lawsuits (e.g., tobacco litigation). This work taught him how to efficiently access huge databases and how to build systems that scale appropriately as the amount of data and transactions increase enormously. Mr. Ivers received a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematical Business from Wake Forest University’s Calloway School of Business, with special emphasis on business modeling, simulation and process analysis.

Ray McDonald


Ray graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1988 with a B.A. in Economics. From 1990 until 1994, Ray worked under John McConnell as a regional sales manager for Medic Computer Systems. In 1999, Ray was picked to manage the sales team for A4 HealthSystems. While at A4 Ray helped facilitate the sale of A4 to Allscripts. In 2007, Mr. McDonald joined McConnell Golf as the Vice President of Sales and Marketing and later became the CEO of ClubSoft when McConnell Golf purchased a majority stake in the company. In 2015, Clubessential acquired ClubSoft and Ray was named Executive Vice President of Sales. The combination of managing the membership and marketing of 10 clubs along with working in the software industry for 20 of the last 25 years allows Ray to bring a unique perspective to the challenges of the private club market.
