Nemacolin Woodlands Resort Appoints Monte F. Hansen as Managing Director

Farmington, Pa. (January 26, 2016) — Nemacolin Woodlands Resort is pleased to announce the appointment of Monte F. Hansen as Managing Director of Pennsylvania’s premier 2,000-acre luxury resort destination.

An industry veteran, Hansen brings more than 15 years of hotel executive experience with a strong emphasis in luxury hospitality management and an extreme passion for cultivating brand cultures. Under Hansen’s leadership the resort is set to unveil resort-wide renovations totaling more than seven million dollars, from a new associate lounge and dining center to an additional pool, sauna and an outdoor dining space to the resort’s popular entertainment complex.

During his previous appointment as General Manager of Keswick Hall and Golf Club in Keswick, Virginia, Hansen focused his team on hotel and group sales and increased memberships. Under his guidance, within nine months, the resort attained a Forbes Five-Star designation and reached record financial growth.

“Monte is a genuine leader who understands and supports my visions for Nemacolin,” said Maggie Hardy Magerko, Owner of Nemacolin Woodlands Resort. “In the 29-year history of our resort I have never been more confident nor excited, for the direction and opportunities for Nemacolin with Monte at the helm.”

Hansen served as general manager at three other luxury resorts around the country, either designated with AAA Four or Five Diamond awards and/or Forbes Four and Five Star awards (The Royal Sonesta Hotel in Houston, Texas; The Peabody Hotel in Little Rock, Arkansas; and The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia). Additionally, he served as Executive Director of Rooms and Director of Hotel Operations and in other management positions at The Peabody Hotel in Memphis, Tennessee and at the Gold Strike Casino Resort in Tunica, Mississippi.

Hansen is a Certified Rooms Division Executive by the American Hotel & Lodging Educational Institute.
