March 8, 2016 - We are pleased to announce the appointment of Thomas Klein as the new Chief Operating Officer for Canyon Ranch®, replacing retiring Peter Smith. Tom will be joining our team effective Monday, April 11, and will be based out of our Fort Worth, Texas, office.

Tom joins us from Fairmont Hotels and Resorts in San Francisco, where he directed all aspects of hotel operations for seven Fairmont properties in California as regional vice president /general manager. Born in Germany and fluent in German, he brings a wealth of international experience including previous top positions with Swissötel Hotels and Resorts (Chicago) and a variety of high-end hotels & resorts in the U.S., South Africa and Australia, including Ritz Carlton. Guided by the Canyon Ranch mission and core values, Tom is committed to preserving the integrity of the Canyon Ranch experience and upholding the standards for excellence at our wellspring resorts in Tucson and Lenox, SpaClub® facilities in Las Vegas and at Sea, plus the upcoming Wellness Resort at Kaplankaya, Turkey. We have a world-class operator in Tom and believe he will make a great addition to our team during a strong period of growth.

Peter, who has graciously stayed on past his retirement announcement late last year and was instrumental in the search for his replacement, has agreed to help in Tom’s transition to Canyon Ranch. We thank Peter for his continued dedication and support.
