Best Parks in America Names Board Members
Best Parks in America (BPA), a national network of 65 premium RV parks and campgrounds, announced the appointment of four people to its board.
According to a news release, the four new directors, whose terms officially begin July 1 and continue for three years, are: Michael Gurevich, owner of Cherry Hill Park, College Park, Md.; Tripp Keber, COO of Bella Terra Realty Holdings, developers of Bella Terra RV Resort, Foley, Ala.; Vern Mangels, owner of Anaheim Resort RV Park, Anaheim, Calif.; and Randy Packard, owner of Pine Acres Family Camping Resort, Oakham, Mass.
Best Parks President and CEO David Gorin and Vice President Deb Kohls also serve as board members.
During 2011, Best Parks was restructured into a non-shareholder corporation and now operates as an association of member parks. The board will be meeting quarterly with the next meeting scheduled to take place on June 6.
“These four new BPA board members represent the diversity of the park industry – the board is geographically diverse, their parks serve varying demographic segments, and the board members represent destination vacation resorts, destination tourist or travel parks and the ownership park business model,” said Gorin. “ This is a highly experienced group of sharp businesspeople and there’s no doubt that all the Best Parks affiliates will be very well served by this outstanding group of industry experts.”
