Gant executive retiring after 30 years

Molly Campbell, a well-known Aspen civic leader and executive at The Gant, will retire at the end of June after more than 30 years with Aspen’s largest condominium complex. “She took a very personal involvement with The Gant and with the community as a whole,” said Howie Mallory, executive vice president for Community Banks of Colorado in Aspen. “[She] set the standard for condo management in town.”Campbell, an Aspen resident since 1970, joined The Gant in 1975 and was appointed as general manager in 1980. She served as the vice president of destination resort management in 1989 and has held the position of managing director and vice president of destination hotels and resorts with responsibilities for The Gant, Mountain Lodge at Telluride and Ute Place since 2003. “Over the years, Molly’s tenacity, creativity and commitment to the lodging community has been enormous,” said Kris McKinnon, Aspen Skiing Co. managing director of worldwide sales. “I’ve been fortunate to know Molly and learn much from her over the years.”Campbell is also a former chairwoman and director of the Aspen Chamber Resort Association. In 2002, she was a major force behind passing a lodging tax that now contributes about $500,000 to ACRA. “She was sort of a career Aspenite,” Mallory said. “She came here to enjoy what the town is all about and did her best to sustain that by being involved in various not-for-profit groups. If she saw a need, she would become involved.”Campbell, in a prepared statement, said she is looking forward to relaxing more, hiking, camping, golfing, doing yoga and traveling.”Aspen is an incredible and unique community that thrives on dialogue, communication … and dissent,” she said. “It is, at its heart, a community rather than a ski resort.” Joel Stonington’s e-mail is
