Austin works with new acquisitions and existing resorts to create strategies for financing, project management, and operational excellence. For Austin, each day brings new experiences: he may meet with lenders in the morning to discuss a new resort and then tour a construction site with project leaders in the afternoon. He’s also the brains behind an innovative financial model for our resorts, allowing us to forecast financials, plan future expansions, and anticipate visitor growth. Austin holds a Bachelor of Business Administration in Finance and a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science, with honors, from Southern Methodist University. Outside of work, he’s a self-described "travel fanatic" who, in addition to skiing, also enjoys playing golf, running, and cooking.
