The Fernley & Fernley Story

Founders of the Association Management Industry since 1886.
Family-owned and operated leaders dedicated to advancing our client’s mission.
Fernley & Fernley’s rich company history dates back to the 1880s, when T. James Fernley, a successful hardware wholesaler, was a member of the Hardware Merchants and Manufacturers Association of Philadelphia. Like many association members, he looked to his association for industry information and for an opportunity to network with his peers.
Fernley saw a need for more leadership and, like a true entrepreneur, stepped up to the plate and began helping to manage the Association. T. James’ son, Thomas A. Fernley, Sr., joined his father shortly thereafter, and the two quickly earned a reputation for exceptional organizational and leadership development skills. By 1909, several other national associations approached the Fernleys, requesting they serve as their organization’s association management team.
Fernley & Fernley, America’s first association management company was born!
Since 1886, additional generations of the Fernley family have helped take the firm to new levels of client service, commitment and expertise. Each generation has been committed to the Fernley Mission: to consistently provide professional management to associations and societies through industry involvement and progressive leadership.
