SAN CLEMENTE, CA, Sept. 27, 2018 - Evolution Hospitality is pleased to announce Murray Lowe has been chosen to lead the Westin Resort & Spa, Whistler team as its new General Manager, following the retirement of Tony Cary-Barnard at the end of the month.
The Westin Resort & Spa, Whistler, located at the base of Whistler Mountain, offers travelers an unmatched destination with more than 400 residentially-styled suites, boasting features like warming fireplaces, spacious tubs, modern kitchens and stunning mountain views. The Westin Whistler is the only luxury all-suite resort and destination spa in Whistler. This award-winning hotel has twice been named the #1 Ski Resort by Condé Nast Traveler, plus was the host resort for downhill events during the 2010 Winter Olympics.
Lowe has worked for Marriott International and Evolution Hospitality for 33 years in operations and food and beverage positions. For the last four years Lowe served as General Manager of the Warner Center Marriott, Woodlands, CA and immediately prior he spent seven years as the General Manager of the 370-room Marina del Ray Marriott.
Known for his guiding principle of making it better than before, "I am looking forward to meeting all the caring and kind associates who've made the hotel so extraordinary, and then seeing where together we can find new ideas and better ways that will both inspire and expand upon the hotel's positive environment to deliver more positive results", says Murray.
Having been away from Canada for much of his career, "my family and I are ecstatic to be returning to Canada and Whistler. Both my wife and I were actively involved in each of the communities we've lived in and we cannot wait to do the same here in Whistler." Murray previously held both board and executive roles with Los Angeles Tourism, Los Angeles Tourism Marketing Committee, Marina del Ray Convention and Visitors Bureau and Marriott's Los Angeles Business Council.
The Westin Whistler Resort & Spa is located at 4090 Whistler Way, Whistler, British Columbia. For more information, visit the website: www.westinwhistler.com.
