Avon’s Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa names new GM

Brian Harrier comes to property from Viceroy Snowmass

The Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa in Avon has announced that Brian Harrier is now the property’s general manager.

Harrier joins The Westin Riverfront from the Viceroy Snowmass, another Colorado resort managed by East West Hospitality, where he most recently served as the director of operations. Harrier helped lead the Snowmass property through a full renovation while also overseeing the operations of the hotel.

A graduate of Indiana University, Harrier began his hospitality career at The Westin Princeville Ocean Resort Villas in Hawaii, where he rose to serve as the director of engineering.

“Brian is a strategic and hands-on leader who is passionate about creating positive and memorable experiences for our guests and our associates,” East West Hospitality CEO and President Colleen Weiss-Hanen said. “He has a broad level of experience in hotel operations, including working with discerning guests and homeowners, and he understands the East West Hospitality culture and core values.”

Owned and managed by East West Hospitality, The Westin Riverfront has 230 guest residences.
