La Quinta, California — August 13, 2019 — KSL Resorts President James Struthers is pleased to announce the promotion of David Goldstein to Vice President, Investments & Business Development. “Dave’s appointment is part of our global growth strategy and a tribute to our talent-based organization culture, which fosters internal promotions of top team members,” says James. “A key driver of our growth over the last six years, we look forward to Dave’s contributions as KSLR continues its expansion.”
Since 2013, Dave acted as KSLR’s Director of Financial Planning & Analysis, helping launch KSLR’s asset management division and leading underwriting on marquis acquisitions including Monarch Beach Resort, Outrigger Hospitality Group, and Miraval Resorts. He was later appointed to Senior Director of Investments & Business Development in 2018.
In his new role, Dave is responsible for sourcing, due diligence, and execution of hotels, resorts, and platform investments. “It’s a thrill and honor to grow with KSL Resorts and see what we can accomplish,” says Dave. “By creatively approaching each opportunity, we continue to outperform in the operation of independent and branded luxury hotels, resorts, and platforms at every stage of the investment cycle.”
KSL Resorts is very much in Goldstein’s DNA: He started as an intern at the luxury property management company at age 17. In the intervening years, Dave worked with some of the best hospitality firms in the country, holding positions with B. F. Saul Hospitality Group and PKF Consulting (now CBRE Hotels). He also held property-level operations positions with KSL Recreation Corporation, Loews, and Crestline.
With a dedication to continuous learning, Dave has built upon his Bachelor of Business Administration and Masters of Tourism Administration from The George Washington University through active engagement as a full member in the Urban Land Institute (ULI) and a member of its Recreation Development Council. Dave recently relocated to Orange County with his wife and two young children as part of KSLR’s planned relocation to Irvine.
KSL Resorts invests in and manages world-class destination resorts, hotels, and clubs, many with a wide array of outstanding recreational amenities including spa, golf, tennis and beach locations. KSL Resorts current portfolio includes Camelback Resort (Poconos), the Monarch Beach Resort (Dana Point, Calif.) and Outrigger Resorts (Honolulu, Hawaii and worldwide). In addition, KSL Resorts provides expertise in asset management services, oversight, and consulting support for some of the most important hotel companies and global brands.
