Ritz names sales director

Karen Crawford

BEAVER CREEK — The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch recently announced Karen Crawford has been named director of sales. With more than 10 years of sales experience, Crawford will oversee all sales efforts for the mountain resort.

“I am delighted to be leading the sales efforts for The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch,” Crawford said. “This property defines a luxury mountain resort and sets the standard for service, amenities, and a unique and engaging experience.”


Crawford’s background in events started right out of college when working for her alma mater, Oklahoma State University. She handled large donor events which eventually led her to Dallas, where she participated in raising funds for the Winspear Opera House. She also helped create and execute an event for The Dallas Opera’s 50th Anniversary Gala. Crawford was most recently working for Rocky Mountain Connections, where she won sales manager of the year and was awarded for the highest revenue brought in by any sales manager out of the company’s seven offices.

“Karen’s strong relationships and depth of knowledge of the Vail Valley will undoubtedly be an invaluable benefit to our sales and marketing team and to our resort,” said Stephanie Leavitt, director of sales and marketing at The Ritz-Carlton.
