CONWAY — Cranmore Mountain Resort has announced several staffing updates to their full-time, year-round team, including numerous promotions and a few new faces.
Aimee Morrell has been promoted to human resources manager.
Morrell has been at the resort for 15 years, starting in employee services in 2004, working her way up within the human resources department.
She is joined by Valerie Dubie, who was recently promoted from HR assistant to HR coordinator; Melissa Gentry, who is new to the resort as an HR assistant; and Heather Corrigan as the new HR administrator. Corrigan has re-joined the Cranmore team after a 10-year hiatus.
In resort operations, Tricia Garcia, a dedicated employee since 2007, has been promoted to director of base area operations. Garcia started at Cranmore as the tickets sales lead, moving up within the department until she was made the attractions and systems manager in 2016.
Garcia has brought in Gregg Ludvigson as the resort’s new mountain bike and ski rental shop manager.
Ludvigson has been involved in the ski and bike industry for over 30 years. With the opening of Cranmore’s new downhill mountain bike park in June 2020, the resort will transition its winter ski rental shop into a full-service bike rental shop featuring a fleet of Rossignol rental bikes.
Kristen Barbin, long time Cranmore Fitness Center manager, has transitioned to lodging manager and owner liaison for Kearsarge Brook Condominiums at Cranmore.
Linda Dean, former member services supervisor at Cranmore Fitness has also transitioned over to the resort in accounting as accounts payable coordinator.
Cranmore’s Marketing Department has welcomed Dylan Henry as the new marketing assistant.
Henry joined the Cranmore team in June of 2019 working in member services at Cranmore Fitness. He joins Marketing Director Becca Deschenes, who is entering her 15th season at Cranmore and her sixth as director.
In sales, Meghan Nelson, former events and sales coordinator, was promoted to events manager, and ticket lead Julie Thompson has taken on new responsibilities in group sales.
“Our ability to promote from within the resort and welcome back many former employees is a huge testament to our staff and the core values of working at Cranmore,” said Cranmore President and General Manager Ben Wilcox. “Everyone always says it feels like a family, and our staff plays a huge role in making that happen.”
