Online travel membership company World Resorts International announces senior management restructure to capitalize on successes.
Phoenix, AZ (September 13, 2011) –– WORLD RESORTS INTERNATIONAL (WRI), providing members-only online access to private resorts and travel benefits, announced today the restructure of its senior management staff to better utilize the talents of its team. Charles Thompson will be stepping down from the Chief Operating Officer position to focus on further developing the company’s highly successful Resort Stays distribution channel. Ty Krehbiel, the company’s president, will be assuming the title and duties of COO.
“We are delighted to have Charles take on this role.” said CEO, Joseph Martori, II. “Charles’ creativity and ingenuity in cultivating this important segment of the WRI business model has been hampered by the mundane necessities of day-to-day operations. By freeing his time to focus exclusively on these programs, I have no doubt that he will be able to significantly enhance the success we, as a company, have enjoyed by his efforts.”
“Ty has over 10 years of experience in executive management and his assumption of the COO duties will allow WRI to seamlessly transition into this new phase of its growth,” Martori continued.
Another vacation industry leader will be stepping in to assume the chief sales and marketing vacancy created by Krehbiel’s move to the COO slot. Tom Dunlap, a 25-year veteran of the vacation ownership industry, has accepted the position of Executive Vice President and Chief Sales & Marketing Officer for WRI.
Krehbiel says, “Tom’s proven record of success in new market development and implementation makes him the perfect addition to the team as WRI positions itself to grow the direction of the consumer segment of its business strategy.”
Krehbiel added “Having rapidly launched and refined the New Mexico operation to its current level of productivity, WRI and and Dunlap believe that scalable replication of that model can be achieved. Tom is excited for the opportunity to aggressively implement the WRI growth and expansion plan.”
