Park City – Chris Eggleton and Chris Retzer, two local entrepreneurs who have worked a combined 18 years on the evolution of Newpark, have acquired Newpark Resort Management, LLC, the property management company for the Newpark Town Center and Newpark Resort & Hotel, located in the Kimball Junction area of Park City.
Eggleton and Retzer purchased the company from longtime Park City residents and business professionals Jim Doilney, Rob Slettom, Donna VanBuren and Marc Wangsgard, who founded Newpark Resort Management, LLC in 2005 to manage the first boutique resort property in Kimball Junction. Doilney and Wangsgard, the master developers of Newpark Town Center, have built and sold more than 1,000 residential units in Park City. Slettom founded Identity Properties in 1980, managing nightly rentals for nearly 200 Park City condominiums. VanBuren is founder and president of Greater Park City Properties representing more than 1,200 Park City homeowners in association management.
“Being so deeply connected to Newpark’s planning, development and operations was an amazing jumpstart to our careers. We’ve learned and accomplished a tremendous amount,” said Chris Retzer. “The acquisition of Newpark Resort is our first step in leveraging our experience to pursue new opportunities in property management and real estate development.”
