Dozens of Hot Springs Village residents and employees welcomed new General Manager Charles King during a drive through meet-and-greet Friday, Aug. 7 at the Ponce De Leon Center.
Guests drove their vehicles, many of them decorated, from one side of the Porte Cochere to the other. King had the chance to speak to many of the guests, who wished him “good luck” and that he enjoy life living and working in the Village. Hot Springs Village musicians Sugah Beatz (Bill and Laura Sorrells) played a variety of songs during the event and each visitor got to depart with ice cream.
King took over the role of General Manager of Hot Springs Village on Aug. 1. Before coming to the Village he served as Managing Director of Lodging Operations at SnowBird Resort in Utah. He has also served in management positions at resorts and multi-amenity operations in Arizona, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Texas.
King will also be presented to the public at the next Board of Directors Meeting on Aug. 19.
