Jenni Smith new head of PCMR

Powdr Corp, the parent company of Park City Mountain Resort, announced Thursday PCMR vice president Jenni Smith would succeed retiring Peter Curtis as president and general manager of the resort.

Curtis had been head since 2004. Smith joined the resort in 1980 and has worked in a series of positions. Her most recent duties as vice president included overseeing resort services, retail operations, human resources and accounting, explained resort spokesperson Krista Parry.

Smith has also been a public face of the resort serving on numerous boards for community organizations and industry associations even going before the Park City Council to protest a planned tax increase.

On July 22, her tenure will end as chair of the board of directors for Park City Chamber of Commerce and Visitor’s Bureau. Last Thursday was her first day as chair of the board of directors for Ski Utah.

"She was a terrific person for us to work with. It’s great to see her in that position, especially working her way up in the company," said Bill Malone, president and CEO of the Chamber/Bureau.

"She has been a very active part of our board and is a big supporter of Ski Utah and is definitely a very valuable entity to our organization," said Ski Utah spokesperson Jessica Kunzer.

Powdr Corp CEO John Cumming said in a press release, "Given her tenure with our company, there is no one better suited to lead the Park City Mountain Resort team into the future and continue the significant growth it enjoyed under Peter Curtis’s leadership."
