Crested Butte Announces Management Changes


Crested Butte, CO – Crested Butte Mountain Resort (CBMR) announced today changes in key management positions as part of a restructuring of the company. President of Triple Peaks LLC, CBMR’s parent company, Tim Mueller, announced changes in management positions including Vice President and General Manager, Randy Barrett. “It has been decided that Randy will step down as General Manager as we look to make changes in our management structure so it aligns more closely with new company goals” said Mueller.

“Randy has served the company in a number of capacities over the years and has done a commendable job in his position as General Manager. Randy, Diane and I are in agreement that it is in the best interest of CBMR to create a new management structure”.

As part of the restructuring, other management changes include the departure of April Prout as Public Relations Manager and Jack Gibbons as Director of Mountain Operations. “We respect and appreciate the hard work and dedication that our management team has shown. These changes in personnel are part of a process that has been going on for some time as we examine all departments and our management team to determine how we should be structured to meet our goals and objectives,” said Mueller.

As these changes occur, Randy has made himself available to assist with transition. “I understand the decisions are with the best interest of the company in mind and I will be a resource during the changes. I have been here for over 27 years and my family and I will continue to support the success of the resort and of Crested Butte”, said Barrett.

These management changes come just following the announcement by Mountain Schools Director, Charlie Farnan who has decided to leave his position as Mountain Schools Director in order to focus more time on his real estate business and on teaching skiing next season.

The company will continue the process of restructuring over the next few months. In the meantime the company will have a transition team in place with Tim and Diane Mueller more involved on a daily basis. Other company executives and managers will assume added responsibilities as the company looks to fill the chief management role and other department management positions.
