Jesse Menachem is the Executive Director and CEO of Mass Golf. Raised in Framingham, MA, Jesse attended Indiana University as an Undergraduate and during his summers home from college worked as a USGA Boatwright Intern for the then Massachusetts Golf Association (now Mass Golf).
After being hired full time by the MGA in 2008, Jesse spent five years working in multiple departments throughout golf administration before being hired as the Executive Director of the MGA at the age of 27. Jesse is the youngest Executive Director in Mass Golf’s 120-year history, and remains one of the youngest in the country to hold this position at a state or regional golf association.
Under his leadership, the staff size of Mass Golf has nearly tripled, and the organization is on the cutting edge across multiple departments – from the quality of the championships they run, to the scale of their communications and marketing efforts, to their work with the First Tee of Massachusetts and other charitable endeavors. He remains such a leader in the industry that in 2021, Jesse was named the President of the International Association of Golf Administrators, an organization which supports all state and regional golf associations across the country.
Jesse lives in Needham, MA with his wife Stephanie and three children.
