Whistler, BC (February 14, 2013) — Award-winning Nita Lake Lodge is excited to announce the appointment of Michael Duggan as General Manager. Contributing over 35 years of hotel & tourism experience, Michael Duggan brings a genuine passion for the hospitality industry.
Michael Duggan has called Whistler home since 2000, when he began serving as General Manager for the Whistler Pan Pacific Hotel. He was the lead developer on Black Rock Oceanfront Resort in Ucluelet BC, which opened in January of 2009 and has been recognized as one of the top new hotels globally. Most recently, Duggan completed setting up the operation of Whistler Places as well providing business development consulting for Trading Places Management Canada.
In addition to his decades of resort management experience, Duggan chaired the board of directors of Tourism British Columbia, a government Crown Corporation that promotes development and growth in the tourism industry, for five years from 2001 to 2006.
Michael Duggan is not new to Nita Lake Lodge, and in fact had an important role in establishing the resort as General Manager when the hotel first opened in Whistler. “I’m really looking forward to returning to Nita Lake Lodge and joining the first-class team there. It’s such a wonderful property with incredible potential. I hope to be a big part of strengthening their niche in the marketplace.” Says Duggan, General Manager at Nita Lake Lodge.
