VAIL — East West Destination Hospitality recently announced that Tom Puntel is now serving as the vice president of sales and marketing at the company, which manages more than $2.5 billion in vacation rental assets at mountain resorts in Colorado and California.

A seasoned hospitality sales executive with more than 25 years of experience, Puntel spent the past 13 years with Hyatt Hotels, most recently serving as the director of sales, marketing and events at the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek. Puntel also held property-level and regional-level sales leadership roles with Starwood Hotels & Resorts and the Intercontinental Group in both Denver and Chicago.

A graduate of Purdue University, Puntel will be responsible for building a comprehensive sales and marketing strategy for East West Destination Hospitality, which manages properties in Beaver Creek, Vail and Snowmass in Colorado and in Lake Tahoe, California, including Vail Spa, which completed more than $10 million in upgrades last winter, and the newest luxury property in Vail Village, the Lion.

"This newly created position for the organization is based on the growing interest that we are seeing from property owners to drive value and from vacation renters to experience unique services in the amazing mountain resorts where we do business," said Colleen Weiss-Hanen, chief financial officer and managing partner for East West Destination Hospitality.

East West Destination Hospitality currently manages 80 homeowner associations for more than 13,000 individual owners. Named Colorado's "Best Property Management Company" by ColoradoBIZ Magazine, the company prides itself on providing expertise in real estate and property management and the highest levels of customer service.
