Just learned that Thad Hyland, Managing Director of the Ojai Valley Inn Resort and Spa - and one of the spa industry’s “stars” – is leaving Ojai. After 12 years and a stellar career there, he is apparently heading “home” to Martha’s Vineyard.
Thad is one of my favorite people in the industry – actually probably many people’s favorite. He is a great guy and a superb manager. He served as ISPA’s President for several years and was also one of the earliest resort GM’s to “get” the value of spa for a property.
Hearing the news through a spa colleague, I did a bit of online research to learn more. Here is the press release where the lucky new company he will be working with – Scout Real Estate Capital – announced his recent arrival. He will be the new GM at Harbor View Hotel & Resort and Kelley House. How interesting to find out that he worked there prior to moving to Ojai.
