Kerry O'Leary, formerly of Boston, will take on the role of director of sales for Attitash Mountain Resort, Wildcat Mountain and The Attitash Grand Summit Hotel.

Kerry brings with her a wealth of knowledge that comes from three decades of leadership experience in the hospitality and tourism industry. For the past 18 years, she was been employed by Starwood Hotels and Resorts, most recently as the director of sales and marketing for W Boston Hotel.

In her previous positions, O'Leary was responsible for the strategic development of revenue streams in all segments, stakeholder communications, multimedia imaging and message delivery.

Kerry is relocating to the Mount Washington Valley with her husband, who has family in the North Conway area.

Jack Fagone, formerly of Mount Snow, Vt., will take on the role of director of marketing for the two resorts and the hotel.

Fagone, a graduate of the University of New Hampshire, previously held the title of marketing manager at Mount Snow, a sister mountain in the Peak Resorts family. There, he oversaw all advertising, database management, internal communications and web content.
