One of the things we're quite proud of at Club Intrawest is the fact that we've grown our talent internally. Many of the executives below and on our senior leadership team started their careers at Club ten to fifteen years ago in junior, entry-level roles. Since then, they've grown and become leaders of the company. The result? People who understand all levels of the business, from the ground up.
