David Brownlie Tapped for Top Revelstoke Job

The relatively insular world of ski resort management was shaken up this fall when Revelstoke Mountain Resort (RMR) announced the appointment of David Brownlie, former Whistler-Blackcomb COO, as president of the resort.

In July 2017, Brownlie stepped down after 29 years with the Whistler operation. Starting out as Blackcomb’s director of finance in 1996, the Burnaby-born chartered accountant left his mark on just about everything, from the corporate merger with Whistler and real estate development to the landmark 60-year Master Development Agreement with Squamish and Lil’wat First Nations.

In a press release issued by the resort, Brownlie said: “The natural attributes of the mountain, the consistent snowfall, and the many outdoor activities in the region combined with a vibrant and authentic community positions RMR to become a leader as a year-round destination mountain resort.” -Staff
