Timbers Resorts Opening New Headquarters In Winter Park, FL
Wednesday, December 5, 2018
Independent developer, Timbers Resorts, has just announced that they are opening a new corporate headquarters in Winter Park, Florida. The company was originally founded in Colorado and plans to move to the East Coast to further expand into Florida, the Caribbean, and Europe. Timbers Resorts is also looking to attract top industry talent for 80 job opportunities.
CEO of Timbers Resorts Greg Spencer commented on the new headquarters:
“We are very excited to join the Winter Park community. We feel that Florida provides a phenomenal platform for the Timbers Resorts brand and is a natural setting to launch new creative experiential vacation offerings. Moving our headquarters out of the Aspen area was a difficult decision, but we feel that Winter Park has a very similar spirit that our brand and employees will fit well within.”
Timbers Resorts was originally founded in 1999 and has seen continued growth since. They have been able to recognize the most popular destinations for travel and provide high-end products for family vacation experiences. Greg Spencer noted that Winter Park, Florida offers a welcoming community and unique character that matches the values of their Aspen, Colorado office.
Winter Park is located in the Orlando metro area, making it the perfect spot for Timbers Resorts to expand into the East Coast and beyond. It is also a top resort destination and an emerging epicenter for business.
“There is no better place than the Orlando region for a global brand like Timbers Resorts to build its future,” said Orlando Economic Partnership President and CEO Tim Giuliani. “As the most visited place in the U.S., this is the center of tourism and leisure activity, but more than that, our region is a place where companies can relocate their headquarters and find the resources and assets required for success.”
Another reason for Timbers Resorts to open a headquarters in Winter Park is the number of hospitality professionals in the area. They are bringing 80 jobs to the community, giving the opportunity for industry professionals to grow with Timbers Resorts.
Governor Rick Scott commented that jobs are the most important things that can be provided for families. Florida’s businesses have created over 1.6 million jobs and their unemployment rate is the lowest it has been in 11 years. Scott is thrilled that Timbers Resorts is bringing more jobs to the area.
As part of the process, Greg Spencer and his team worked with the Orlando Economic Partnership, the City of Winter Park, the City of Orlando, the Government of Orange County, and the Enterprise of Florida to ensure the move would be a good fit for Timbers Resorts as well as the local community.
While their headquarters is moving, Timbers Resorts will keep their Colorado office as well as their satellite offices in Barcelona, Spain; Bluffton, South Carolina; and Kauai, Hawaii. Find out more about Timbers Resorts by visiting their website.
