André Fournier paints a picture of success for every challenge that comes his way with the mantra: “Believe in your mind that you can, and you will.” His competitive spirit developed at a young age with years of reigning as a championship wrestler, which he continued into his college days. Still a physical Titan, he is happiest when active—whether it’s fly-fishing, skiing, golfing or simply taking his dog, Phelps, for a long walk and rocking out to AC/DC. He is a true family man—proud father of three daughters Natalie, Renee and Danielle; and has spent countless weekends cheering them on at swimming competitions. Thanks to his decision to enter the hospitality industry more than 30 years ago, André met his adoring wife, Lisa, along the way in the sales department at Keystone Resort in CO. He loves to travel and explore new cultures, which he learned growing up with his parents and siblings touring North America.
André’s leadership style is built on the foundation of “Living Above the Line,” coined by motivator Mike Lipkin, which fosters preeminence and accountability in the workplace. André is admired for his integrity, overcoming adversity, compassion and ability to inspire and develop staff by encouraging “intestinal fortitude” or strength from within. He sets high expectations for his team and believes in the freedom to fail. His leadership excellence has led him to win numerous awards, from HSMAI’s Top 25 Extraordinary Minds in Sales & Marketing to Colorado Hotel & Lodging Association’s Sales & Marketing Manager of the Year. He is most at home with his family and friends, enjoying a glass of wine along a river which is always flowing and changing its course.
