Devin Gleason, who has spent more than 10 years working in the resort industry, has been named director of sales and marketing at Lake Arrowhead Resort and Spa, a mountain getaway located on the banks of Lake Arrowhead in California’s San Bernardino National Forest.
Gleason will oversee all group, leisure and catering sales, as well as marketing and public relations for the resort – including forging important community partnerships with nearby recreational entities such as SkyPark at Santa’s Village and Snow Valley Mountain Resort.
“With his strong track record in the hospitality industry and his enjoyment of the outdoors, Devin is the ideal candidate to take the helm of our sales and marketing team,” said Managing Director Geoff Young. “We are confident his skills and experience will be invaluable as we concentrate on positioning Lake Arrowhead Resort as the premiere mountain destination in Southern California.”
Gleason was previously director of sales and marketing for Topnotch Resort, a mountain destination in Stowe, Vermont. Prior to his tenure at Topnotch, he was the director of sales and marketing at Stoweflake Mountain Resort & Spa – a Four-Diamond mountain property also in Stowe. Additionally, he held the positions of associate director of sales and marketing and director of sales at the historic Chatham Bars Inn and Spa, in Chatham, Mass.
