Lake Austin Spa Resort
AUSTIN, Texas (April 2018) – Lake Austin Spa Resort has announced the appointment of Jeff Holland as Director of Sales & Marketing to the 40-room award-winning destination spa in Austin, Texas. Holland joined the 220-person team in March 2018, and brings over 20 years of experience with a strong emphasis in the luxury hospitality industry.
As Director of Sales and Marketing, Holland oversees all aspects of marketing the 40-room resort as well as the 25,000-square foot LakeHouse Spa.
An impressive and expansive career began at The Club at Seabrook Island in Seabrook Island, South Carolina where he got his first taste of hospitality and eventually was promoted into a leadership position as the National Group Sales Manager in just four years. From there, he held executive level positions at prestigious properties including Pinehurst Resort in North Carolina, The Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort and Spa in Florida, The Ritz-Carlton Reynolds in Georgia, and Rosewood Cordevalle in California. For three years he handled all aspects of hosting the largest annual women’s golf championship – the U.S. Women’s Open also contested at Cordevalle. Most recently he was with Perry Lane Hotel, the first luxury hotel to enter the market in Savannah, Georgia.
Holland holds a Bachelors Degree in Finance from Siena College in Loudonville, NY and also completed studies in the hospitality field from eCornell, the online portal for Cornell University.
“As our brand continues to evolve, we were looking for a leader who could merge our stellar reputation with new, innovative services. Jeff has the skills to create a framework for change through effective leadership and always thinking beyond the obvious. Today’s marketplace demands new ways of communicating with a very niche affluent audience and I’m confident the resort and the guest experience will benefit under his direction,” says Janis Clapoff, Managing Director of Lake Austin Spa Resort.
