Alterra Mountain Company announces leadership changes, creates new company divisions
Alterra Mountain Company Chief Executive Officer, Rusty Gregory, announces leadership promotions and organizational changes as the company looks toward its long-term future, while navigating the upcoming winter season during the pandemic.
Alterra Mountain Company is adding two new divisions to the company, Hospitality and Real Estate. These divisions will work in parallel with the Mountain Division, made up of the company’s 15 North American mountain destinations. The Hospitality Division is responsible for elevating the guest experience and growing the offerings beyond the company’s current 45 lodging properties, 100+ food and beverage outlets, and various membership clubs. The Real Estate Division is responsible for growing the overall appeal of each destination by combining strategic on-mountain and base area development.
Todd Shallan has been promoted to Chief Operating Officer, Hospitality Division and will leave his current role as President & COO of Deer Valley Resort in late October. Jeremy Levitt, President and COO of CMH Heli-Skiing & Summer Adventures, will assume Todd’s roles and responsibilities at Deer Valley and will continue to oversee CMH. Rob Rohn, CMH’s long-tenured General Manager and Director of Mountain Operations, will manage daily operations at CMH through the 20/21 winter season. Bryan Elliot has been named President of the Real Estate Division in addition to his current responsibilities as Chief Development Officer of Alterra Mountain Company.
Todd has a 35-year track record in the resort, hospitality and recreation industries. Previously, Todd was Chief Operating Officer at iFly Indoor Skydiving in Austin, TX, Director of Asset Management for KSL Capital Partners in London, Vice President and General Manager at Hotel Del Coronado & Beach Village at the DEL in Coronado, CA, and held a variety of other F&B and hotel-related roles for the prior two decades after graduating with a B.S. in Hotel Administration from Cornell University. Todd will assume his new role in mid-November, after a brief transition period with Jeremy at Deer Valley.
Prior to becoming President of CMH in 2015, Jeremy worked at CMH’s parent company, Intrawest Resorts (now Alterra Mountain Company), where he led a variety of strategic initiatives, turnarounds, and corporate development projects. Jeremy started his career in mergers & acquisitions at Citigroup in New York and then moved on to private equity & distressed asset investments at Cerberus Capital Management. He was recruited to Vienna, Austria to invest for BAWAG P.S.K., Austria’s 4th largest commercial bank and a Cerberus portfolio company. Jeremy received his MBA from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania where he focused on Management and Marketing.
