An executive resume should include personal information, to indicate the many dimensions of your life and interests.
There is no way to predict the personal biases of the individuals who will read your resume. The first and primary way that an employer uses a resume is to screen candidates out. Dont give them any reason to screen you out.
Board memberships, related volunteer work, and professional associations should often be included but religious affiliations, family status, country club memberships, and hobbies have no place on an executive resume.
The only exception to this is when you are preparing a resume specifically written to appeal to a single individual who you are absolutely certain would be fascinated in your piloting license or passion for golf. Even then, be careful, you never know where your resume will go.
However, if you are certain that your personal information will help you to break the ice and build rapport, you may have a valid reason for including it.
