Twenty-two year industry veteran will lead iconic Texas Hill Country property
SAN ANTONIO, TX - Destination Hotels announced today that John Spomer has been named Vice President, Managing Director of the La Cantera Hill Country Resort, a member of the Destination Hotels & Resorts collection. Spomer will lead all of the day-to-day operations of the renowned four-diamond property which features 508 rooms, the casita village, 40,000 square feet of dedicated meeting and function space, nine restaurant and lounge outlets, a spa and fitness center, five pools and two championship golf courses.
"I could not be more enthusiastic about John taking on the role of Vice President and Managing Director of the Resort. In addition to a tremendous track record of success, he brings strong leadership skills and tremendous drive and determination to create a world class resort. From our earliest meetings with John, it was clear that he shared our commitment to create an extraordinary guest experience at La Cantera Hill Country Resort said Len O'Donnell, President & CEO, USAA Real Estate Company.
Since joining Destination Hotels and Resorts in 1992, Spomer has gained experience in a variety of roles with the company. Spomer began at Destination at the Inverness Hotel and Conference Center before moving into several key management roles including General Manager, Managing Director, Regional VP of Operations and finally his most recent stint as Senior Vice President of Performance Optimization and Transitions for the company.
