Hall takes helm at Vail Resorts lodging division
AVON ” Bill Hall has been named vice president of the Vail Resorts lodging division, replacing Ed Mace, who will depart next month.
The company’s lodging division includes RockResorts and Vail Resorts Lodging
The announcement comes in the wake of a slate of changes within Vail Resorts, including the appointment of a new chief executive, Rob Katz, at the end of February and the announcement at that time that the company’s corporate headquarters will relocate to the Front Range this summer.
“This change in leadership is consistent with our strategy of concentrating on future lodging growth within our existing mountain resorts, at other mountain resorts and select management opportunities outside of those locations, and a reduced focus on aggressive acquisition growth,” Katz said in a statement. “Ed and I believe this change was the right one for both him and the company.”

Hall joined the RockResorts and Vail Resorts Lodging Company in August, 2005. Previously, he spent 11 years with The Ritz-Carlton Company and as general manager of a variety of renowned hotels, including Pinehurst, Silverado, Pebble Beach, the Cloister Hotel and Beach Club, and the Century Plaza Hotel.
Hall and the RockResorts staff will relocate to the new corporate offices of Vail Resorts, scheduled to open later this summer in the Denver metro area.
“I’m thrilled that Bill Hall has agreed to take the reins in overseeing the company’s lodging division,” Katz said. “His extensive experience and highly successful track record in managing luxury properties across the country will ensure a seamless transition.”
