BEAVER CREEK, Colorado – Scott Mason, general manager of Park Hyatt Beaver Creek Resort since 2006, has accepted the position of general manager at Hyatt Regency Denver Tech Center, a 451-room property in the Denver technology and commercial core. Hyatt Regency Denver Tech Center is one of 38 privately owned Hyatt Hotels worldwide.

While at Park Hyatt Beaver Creek, Mason oversaw the ambitious renovation of the four-star property located at the base of the mountain. The $34 million capital plan saw the expansion of Allegria Spa, conversion of 274 rooms to 190 with the addition of 15 fractional Park Hyatt Residences, renovation of guest gathering areas, and refurbishments to group and conference areas. The renovations culminated with the development and launch of 8100 Mountainside Bar and Grill with award-winning Chef Pascal Coudouy.

“Change is good,” said Mason, who looks forward to returning to the city in which he was raised. “I would not have this opportunity to continue to grow my career with Hyatt if not for the effort and support of my Park Hyatt Beaver Creek family. It is difficult for me to put my gratitude into words.”

While at the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek, Mason led a team of nearly 300 in peak years and received accolades including:

• Travel + Leisure Top 50 Resorts in the World

• Conde Nast Traveler’s top 15 Ski Resorts and top 50 Golf Resorts in North America

• Gourmet magazine’s ranking of number one for Skiing and Winter Sports

• 2010 Esquire magazine ranking of 8100 as one of the “15 Best Restaurants Not to Miss” in its Best New Restaurants collection

Robert Purdy, who will be replacing Mason, has been with Hyatt for 25 years.
