Bob Wheaton | Deer Valley Resort

We wanted to let you know of the recent announcement regarding Bob Wheaton.  After 37 years, he is stepping down as the President/COO at Deer Valley Resort, but transitioning into a new position with Alterra as Senior Strategic Advisor.  He is an icon in the ski industry and will truly be missed.  We will to thank you Bob Wheaton for your service to the community.  I'm sure we'll be seeing you on the slopes this coming season.  Best of luck to you.  

An Important Transition Announcement
It is with mixed emotion that I send you this email to inform you of my plans to transition away from the President/COO role at Deer Valley Resort and into a new role with Alterra Mountain Company as Senior Strategic Advisor. I am grateful to our parent company for the opportunity to stay engaged and involved in the ski industry as I move into a new phase. As many of you know, I love working at my ranch with my wife Marion and very much look forward to having more time to spend with my family and friends.

Todd Shallan, who has been selected to fill my position, will begin working with me at Deer Valley on September 24, 2018. We will host a Town Hall once he is on site for you to all meet him and learn more about Todd’s experience and qualifications. Suffice it to say that I have spent time with Todd and am excited about the future of Deer Valley, his involvement, and his leadership role as President/COO. I plan to stay at Deer Valley until the end of December 2018, working closely with Todd to assist with the transfer of knowledge.

I am so proud of each of you and everything we have accomplished together at Deer Valley over the last 37 years. It is with great pride that I leave Deer Valley knowing that, because of all of you, we will continue to provide our guests with the exceptional vacation experience they have come to expect, know and love. Please join me in welcoming Todd to the Deer Valley family.

Best regards, 
Bob Wheaton
