Revice Jordan - Posh Management Group

There is a certain magnetism to Revice Jordan. People from all walks of life and in settings just as diverse tend to gravitate towards Rev. While you might not be able to put a finger on what exactly drew you in, you will undoubtedly know why you like having him around. At the core, it is the recognition of a genuine soul that only wants to include others to collectively enjoy the moment. This is the essence that culminated in the creation of his Veteran Owned Business, Posh Management Group. His military experience allowed him to become the successful individual he is today. Understanding how to work with and lead different types of characters is what led him on a journey he never saw coming. This was the journey of stepping into the hospitality industry where he started to see who he really was as a professional in the industry, and how he affected those he worked for and those he leads.

Vasile Petric - Riverhorse on Main

I believe it is of most importance for every business and tourist to do their best to go as green as possible. Reuse, repurpose, recycle, bike and car pool should be a mantra for all businesses in Park City. Even though the chamber doesn't have the possibility to regulate such initiatives, we can develop various programs and incentives for everyone involved to benefit and help them open their perspective and make everyone understand that global warming is happening now and actions must be taken, even if for some it may seem radical.
