Crossville, TN (April 5, 2013) — The Resort Academy announced the appointment of Sharon Drechsler-Scott as executive director. Drechsler-Scott is a cofounder of the free, online resource, ResortAcademy.org, which is currently being developed to provide educational materials to timeshare resort managers, as well as private access to a networking platform.
“The Resort Academy’s other cofounder Resort Trades Publisher Tim Wilson and I were inspired to provide managers with their own, dedicated resource after conducting a research project that included speaking with resort managers throughout North America,” says Drechsler-Scott. “Having worked for both Vacation Resorts International (VRI) and Tricom Management, Inc., I have a fine appreciation of the many demands placed on timeshare resort management teams. We are determined to restrict unrelated dialogue, sales pitches or any self-promotional conversation from our networking board and news updates. Our intention is to provide managers and on-site resort staff with a free, no-nonsense resource for learning and sharing.”
The site will 1) stream hundreds of management-oriented articles, whitepapers and current news; 2) provide an online gathering place strictly limited to management teams and 3) host webinars and events focusing on down-to-earth issues that resort teams face every day.
