Magdalena King, new assistant manager of the Antlers at Vail hotel
-- The Antlers at Vail, a condominium hotel and conference center, has promoted Magdalena King to the position of Assistant Manager. "We're thrilled about Magda's new role at the Antlers," says General Manager Rob LeVine. "I recently heard Bob Vanourek, co-author of 'Triple Crown Leadership,' speak for the Vail Symposium, and he talked about the importance of choosing candidates with the right heart—that is, passion and enthusiasm for the business. It validated our decision, because Magda King has the right heart for hospitality in general, and specifically for managing the heart and soul of the Antlers.”
King, who became a U.S. citizen last year, is originally from Ecuador and speaks four languages fluently. "I'm honored and excited to accept this position, especially in light of the many other qualified candidates we had," she says. King has been with the Antlers for five years and was previously Director of Sales. She has also served on the board for the local chapter of Hospitality Sales and Marketing Association International (HSMAI).
The Antlers is a 90-room condominium hotel with 2600 square feet of meeting space located in the redeveloped Lionshead area near the Vail Gondola. Offering 1-, 2-, 3-, and 4-bedroom condominiums with full kitchens, fireplaces, and outdoor balconies, the Green Star-rated property includes a heated-year-‘
round outdoor pool, fitness room, two hot tubs, saunas and a heated indoor parking garage.
