SAM Magazine--Park City, Utah, Feb. 4, 2004--Powdr Corporation has named Vern Greco senior vice president-chief operating officer. He will report to Powdr president and CEO John D. Cumming.
"This change is intended to accomplish three things," said Cumming.

In addition, we intend to continue to evolve and refine the practices which differentiate our resorts from the rest of the industry. Finally, we need to develop a leadership and management structure that will allow us to grow."
Greco has been president and general manager of Park City Mountain Resort since 1998 and guided the company through the Olympics as well as a successful re-positioning to capture the youth market with nationally-acclaimed terrain parks.
