We are proud to announce the appointment of our new director of business development, Richard Holt. Holt has been promoted from his previous position at Edgewater Beach & Golf Resort, where he spent two years as manager of rental services.

“As a valuable Resort Collection employee with several years of experience in the Panama City Beach resort and tourism industry, Richard brings insight and a hard work ethic to the company,” says Paul Wohlford, our vice president of sales and marketing. “We are thrilled to see him excel in his new position.”

Holt, a Tennessee native, has a bachelor’s degree in business management and marketing from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. During his time as Edgewater’s rental manager, Holt acted as the liaison between owners and guests for over 400 different units. His primary focus was the satisfaction of Edgewater’s rental owners.

As Resort Collection’s director of business development, Holt will be responsible for developing new business partnerships with existing and future condominium owners for the Resort Collection management company. He will reach out to condominium owners throughout Panama City Beach to better understand their needs and then work to create the ideal management program, one that caters to all involved—owners, guests and The Resort Collection.

“I truly believe that RC’s executive and management teams possess the experience, dedication and vision to carry out their mission statement: ‘to be the preferred leisure, golf, meeting, and lifestyle destination in Panama City Beach,’” Holt says. “I am very excited about taking on this position and I am proud to be a part of the continued growth and success of the Resort Collection team.”
