Brent Martin has been appointed general manager at Four Seasons Resort and Residences Vail, after first arriving on an interim assignment in late September.

"Brent's knowledge and experience, along with his positive approach and enthusiasm, will continue to be a great asset for Vail," said Thierry Kennel, regional vice president for Four Seasons Resort Vail.

Martin's career with Four Seasons began in 2007, first as hotel manager at Beverly Wilshire, a Four Seasons Hotel, followed by his promotion to general manager at Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui, Thailand. In 2012, he returned to the United States, serving as general manager at the then-Four Seasons property in Philadelphia, where he held positions on the boards of Visit Philadelphia, Central Philadelphia Development Corporation and chairman of Compass, an organization that provides consulting services by local business professionals to nonprofit associations. Martin later moved into a Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts corporate role, during which time he provided strategic consulting services to hotels around the world, as well as to the corporate office.

'SETTLING DOWN'

A graduate of Harvard University, Martin is active in coaching and leadership development, traveling the world supporting the management teams at many Four Seasons hotels. Most recently, he held interim general manager positions at Four Seasons Resort Marrakech and Vail.

"I look forward to settling down after a year of globe-trotting" Martin said. "Vail is a special place — I am already very impressed with the tight-knit community and town activities. It's no wonder Vail continues to be named one of the top destinations in the world."
