We are embarking on an exciting period of growth and diversification, adding key members to our corporate team, new Timbers Resorts locations, and new brands. With all that growth and diversification, there is a need to establish a parent brand. There's a lot on the horizon and the industry and consumers can expect significant announcements from the Timbers Company in the coming months."
The recent advantageous move to expand the Timbers corporate team at the executive level allows the company to strengthen its execution capabilities, priming the company for new projects and partnerships to provide more value to owners and guests.

The new executive hires include Lisa Hultquist and Nick Hall, now serving as Corporate Director of Marketing and Director of Business Development – Hospitality, respectively.

Prior to joining Timbers, Hall was responsible for real estate acquisitions and oversaw budgeting, financial projects and the construction draw process for ground-up hotel developments in excess of $600 million at The Kessler Collection hotels and resorts. Hall also worked with Xenia Hotels & Resorts (formerly Inland America Lodging Advisors) on over $2B in total transactions, leading up to a successful public listing.
