Deer Valley Resort has named Chris Lampe as its new director of human resources.
Lampe’s history in the Park City ski industry spans 22 years as both a ski instructor and human resources professional. Lampe started his journey in the ski industry as a ski instructor in Washington when he was just 16 years old. He grew up on Mercer Island, Washington, and graduated from Central Washington University with a bachelor’s degree in sociology and a minor in psychology. After college, Lampe moved to Park City, Utah, to teach skiing as a level III certified instructor at Park City Mountain Resort. Following three years of instructing, Lampe made a career-defining move to human resources, where he has honed his expertise in recruiting, training, employee relations and business partnerships for the past 19 years.
“The fundamental philosophy at Deer Valley Resort since its inception in 1981 has been a commitment to excellence in everything we do,” said Bob Wheaton, president and general manager of Deer Valley Resort. “That culture and the Deer Valley standard is achieved through our valued employee workforce. The role of human resources director is vital to maintaining our company culture and we look forward to Lampe’s vision and direction in his new role.”
Lampe resides in Park City with his wife, Sarah, and young daughter, Vivian. In addition to family and pet time with their dog, Lampe is an avid XC and downhill skier and participant in recreation league sports. Free time in warmer months is spent golfing, hiking and cheering on Real Salt Lake.
