Challenge: Leadership Succession
Mountain Park Lodges
The best run businesses are those that frequently look in the mirror to assess their situation. In so doing, it sometimes becomes clear that the faces looking back are not as young as they once were, and are in fact contemplating retirement. Mountain Park Lodges identified the need to fill several key executive vacancies that are expected to occur over the coming years for this very reason.
Located in the heart of Jasper National Park, Mountain Park Lodges operates six unique hotel and resort properties. With more than 500 high-quality guestrooms, MPL offers visitors from around the world an opportunity to experience the beauty and adventure of the Canadian Rockies. Over the past four decades, the company has experienced significant growth and success, and become a highly-respected member of the region’s business community.
John Day, CEO of Mountain Park Lodges, has partnered with HumanEdge as part of a proactive succession strategy, counting on the experience of this tourism executive recruitment firm to attract young, motivated executives to fill several key C-suite positions.
