Liberty National Golf Club: Your Gateway to Marine Careers

About Us

Paul Fireman came to golf through the caddy yard at Thorny Lea Golf Club in Brockton, Mass., as a 10-year-old carrying the bags of entrepreneurs and executives, storekeepers and dreamers. 

Fireman learned quickly that the game was a bridge between two worlds - childhood and adulthood. His loops through the leafy club would not only inform his journey through golf, but also his rise in business.

“I think golf is a code of conduct, a way of life, and a tremendous character builder,” says Fireman, the chairman of Fireman Capital Partners in Boston, Mass, and co-founder of Liberty National Golf Club with his son, Dan.

“In my generation, children were seen and not heard, but when you went out as a caddie, you not only had the right to talk, but the adults asked you questions. It became a social way of connecting people together.”

From those early lessons of relationship-building, Fireman has developed a remarkable portfolio in the consumer, investment and real estate sectors, notably as the founder and former chairman and CEO of Reebok International Ltd. and co-founder of the Paul and Phyllis Fireman Family Foundation.

One of his boldest strokes was the purchase of nearly a mile of neglected and decaying New Jersey shoreline with stunning views of Manhattan. It was an eyesore. It was a gurgling mess.
