The board of owners and staff members

Mazarrón Country Club has a Board, elected by the owners, to look after the interests of the Community ensuring that all communal areas are looked after including waste water treatment, security and cameras, rubbish collection, street lighting, gardening and general upkeep of the Urbanisation.

It is worth noting that under Spanish Law, If no one volunteers to be President, someone can be assigned to serve based on a rotation of the owners or based on a rotation by lot number. In practice, if there are no volunteers, one property will be chosen by lottery to begin the rotation and the decided upon order will be followed thereafter.

The community has two paid staff members and contracts others when needed.

Sonia Bennett

Vice President

I am British. I have lived on MCC for a number of years, joining the Board over 5 years ago. I took on the role of vice president to provide support to the current president. There is a lot of work done by the Board and President which is carried out in the background which I felt I could assist with. The work I do on the Board is very much finance, and problems. I come from a banking background with over 33 years experience in finance. I enjoy the work the Board does and find it interesting

Karen Rae


I am British. I have lived on MCC since 2018. I had previously stayed in Mazarrón and MCC for many holidays over a long period of time. So, when we decided move to Spain it was always going to be Mazarrón and MCC. I joined the board in 2022 with an interest to help keep MCC the beautiful place that it is. ‘Dream up the kind of world you want to live in. Dream out loud.’ Bono My career background is in Human Resources having worked in multiple small, medium and large organisations. I have worked in education, The Army and pharmaceutical companies amongst others. I have also been on the Governing body of a school in the U.K. and been a youth worker. I love music, dancing and attending live concerts.

Eric Vlasman


In 2018 my wife and I moved to Spain and have lived since that time at the Mazarron Country Club. As there was a position as treasurer and I wanted to become active for the community I applied for this position and was appointed in 2019 by the agm. As treasurer I keep the books, manage the community fees and invoices. Also I am the system administrator of the computer program we use to manage the urbanizacion. As a board member I try to keep improving the urbanizacion for all that own property here.

John Ross

Board member / waste and gardens

I am an ex HGV Tanker driver. I retired early and moved to Spain in 2008 to MCC. I joined the board approx 10 years ago under the then president Barry Smith, who gave me the role of Gardening & Waste. All the roles were a new venture back then and we all learned as we went along. I enjoy my role and have a good rapport with the garden and waste company MCC use. I consider I get along well with all board members plus Aitor, our site manager, who is always available when I need him.

Leo Noordermeer

Board member / Safety and Security

I am Dutch. In 2013 we settled permanently in Spain, and I became a member of the CoO board. My availability for the CoO board is a matter of principle for me. Letting others do the work while I'm standing on the sidelines, watching, is not an option. With my experience in aviation, I try to contribute to solving problems and to initiate improvements, for the benefit of all owners.

Ruth Jackson

Board member / building

I have lived on MCC for 11 years. My motivation for joining the board was to keep the standards on Mcc set by the board. I was a qualified worker in the health sector in the UK. My hobbies are: counted cross stitch, involved with a local choir for charity, walking, knitting. I am British and I have one son. Something good at: looking after my husband.

Max-Peter Hornemann

I have lived on MCC since 2018. I would like to help within the board to complete the tasks at hand. Within the board I am responsible for the debtors and try to get the unpaid money. I am German.
