The new chairman and CEO of Best Parks in America may have operated “under the radar” in the RV park and campground sector but that era has come to an end, according to a report by Woodall’s Campground Management.
Best Parks Founder David Gorin used the “radar” analogy to refer to Reza Paydar, whom he introduced on Monday (Feb. 4) as the new lead investor in Best Parks, a 10-year-old marketing group that encompasses 70 quality parks across the nation, mostly located in the East.
Paydar is no stranger to the industry, but he “has not had a high level of visibility,” said Gorin, who will remain as Best Parks president and chief spokesman.
Yet, over the past 30 years, Paydar has garnered extensive experience in building successful RV resorts, hotel and commercial property developments as well as other types of companies.
He is known in the RV park and campground circle as a good businessman who runs a tight ship but one who maintains a low profile within the industry. His parks are members of the California Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (CalARVC) but he does not take an active role in association activities.
However, just as he stepped up to create Sunland RV Resorts, a chain of resorts in Southern California and Florida, Paydar expects to lead Best Parks’ branding network to another level.
“I am completely excited about the opportunity to be of service and invest in the great platform David has created over the years,” Paydar said during Monday’s news conference announcing the changing of the guard.
Paydar said he wants to use the synergy that is created through the Best Parks network, whose members he termed “the best of the breed,” to enhance not only the members but the entire RV park and campground industry.
“Through this process we are hoping Best Parks in America will become a platform of opportunities for independent operators to benefit from it. Cross promotions will benefit all independent RV park owners,” he said, without fear of losing their own identity or brand.
