Horizon RV Resorts announced today (May 16) the hiring of Denver-area based Scott Foos as vice president of operations, providing “a key component” in the Westville, Calif.-based company’s expansion strategy.
Formerly general manager of one of Colorado’s premier RV Resorts, Foos brings to the Horizon team over seven years of experience in the outdoor hospitality industry and an impressive level of skills in all areas of RV Resort management. In his new role, Foos will be actively engaged in the recruiting and management of new parks coming into the Horizon RV Resorts’ portfolio of managed properties. He will also head the Greenwood Village, Colo., office of Horizon RV Resorts.
Randy Hendrickson, founder and president of Horizon RV Resorts, noted, “We are absolutely thrilled to have Scott on board. He is a phenomenal talent, and he has embraced every new challenge we’ve thrown at him with an unbelievable commitment to timely, steadfast, quality results.”
Beverly Johnson, Horizon RV Resorts co-founder and executive vice president added, “Scott is truly amazing on all levels, and the best part is that he is very well known to us. We already knew that he shares our values and commitment to the guest experience and to the park owner’s bottom line, and that is a rare combination.”
Horizon RV Resorts provides management and consulting services to 11 properties in six states, and has a demonstrable track record of assisting park owners anywhere in the country. But, according to the company, the next level of expansion involves Colorado as the focus area.
Horizon recently became a supplier member with the Colorado Campground and Lodge Owners Association (CCLOA) and is preparing a number of promotional advertising venues to reach park owners in Colorado in an effort to establish a significant presence there. With the addition of a Colorado base of operations, Horizon can provide local-level services to park owners looking to free up their time while becoming more profitable.
“This is an exciting time for Horizon RV Resorts,” said Hendrickson. “By adding Scott and a regional office in Colorado, we are geographically poised to reach more clients with the personalized attention they require. Although we are initially targeting Colorado, this is just the first of many initiatives we have planned to establish a more robust presence in several key markets.”
