Aspen Skiing Company: CEO Mike Kaplan will retire
After his 30th year with the company, and 17 years as President and CEO of Aspen Skiing Company, Mike Kaplan will retire from his position at the end of the 2022-23 ski season.
Jim Crown, managing partner for the Crown Family, Aspen Skiing Company's ownership, offered the following reflections: We have been involved in the ski industry for almost 40 years. Over that time, we have come to know Mike Kaplan—and his team—as the best in the industry. Mike embodies the finest attributes of a leader: His intelligence, humanity, humility, love of the sport and concern for others are remarkable. He cares deeply about every guest who visits Aspen and every employee or community member who lives here. As an ownership group, we have been fortunate to have had Mike in our lives for the last three decades.
Mike Kaplan is the 9th CEO in ASC’s 75-year history and only the third in the last 35 years.
