La Quinta, California — KSL Resorts is pleased to announce the appointment of Ross Greenman to the position of Vice President/General Counsel.
Says KSL President and CEO Scott Dalecio, “As our portfolio of managed properties continues to grow, it became clear that the corporate team needed to include a General Counsel like Ross, someone who is well versed in, and passionate about, hotel real estate investments. As General Counsel, Ross will ensure that all legal considerations are properly addressed without losing sight of business priorities.”
In his new role, Greenman will be responsible for overseeing all legal matters within KSL Resorts as well as participating in business development and acquisitions efforts. “The hotels and resorts business is a dynamic one, but it is also extremely complex with many more moving parts than other commercial real estate investments,” says Greenman. Adding, “Given my significant business development experience in the hotel real estate space, I look forward to working closely with the business development team and other affiliates as we source and structure new investment opportunities.
Until recently, Ross was General Counsel and Vice President of Business Development for Vista Investments, a hotel development, management and franchise business based in El Segundo, California. He has also held senior roles as in-house counsel with Best Western and as a Vice President with HREC Investment Advisors focusing on hotel real estate.
Earlier in his career, Ross worked for six years as a Deputy District Attorney in the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office – the largest DA’s office in the country – where he managed a heavy volume of trials.
Ross received his BA from UC Berkeley in 2003 and his Juris Doctorate from the University of California Hastings College of the Law in 2006.
In anticipation of the KSLR office move to Irvine, Ross, wife Taryn, and their two young daughters, will be relocating shortly from Los Angeles to the Orange County area.
