Carlsbad, CA (May 19, 2011) -– ResorTime.com’s Jane Hopley has taken home the first place award and been named Rental Program Manager of the Year by the American Resort Development Association’s prestigious Awards Program for 2011. The Gold “ARDY” Award Winners were named in conjunction with ARDA’s National Convention.
ARDA, an international trade association which fosters and promotes the growth of the vacation ownership industry and serves its members through education, public relations and communications, legislative advocacy, membership development, and ethics enforcement. The Awards Program is an annual ceremony that recognizes the best and the brightest individuals within various categories of the resort industry.
Hopley, who has been with ResorTime.com since 2009, manages a group of 12 resorts for the on-line vacation rental company. She beat out hundreds of finalists from the competition, each submitted by ARDA members. All finalists were judged independently through a confidential blind judging process. Hopley’s win is a great achievement for the 10 year old company. Timeshare rental is a growing segment of the shared ownership industry and the competition in this segment was in one of the most competitive categories in the area of timeshare management.
According to Sherri Weeks, General Manager of ResorTime.com, “we are so proud that our success is personified by one of our most exceptional team members. Under Jane’s direction, in one year (from 2009 to 2010) her department revenue increased by $1,000,000. Perhaps what makes this feat doubly amazing is her previous background. When she came to us, her major asset was the kind of strategic thinking that came out of her hotel experience. Yet, it was a challenge, because the model of timeshare availability means that sometimes you sell inventory based on a forecast, not on immediate availability. She embraced the challenge and put together a process that became an immediate and giant success.”
