Global Timeshare Association Recognizes Breckenridge Grand Vacations Award Finalists

The American Resort Development Association (ARDA) recently selected over a dozen nominees from Breckenridge Grand Vacations (BGV) as finalists in 20 categories at the upcoming 2017 ARDA Awards for resort professionals. Each year, ARDA, the trade association which represents the timeshare vacation ownership and resort development industry, hosts ARDA World, the annual gathering of timeshare professionals.

Over the past 15 years, BGV has consistently won at the Annual Awards Gala, which takes place each spring at the ARDA World Convention. ARDA has also presented BGV with numerous ARDA Circle of Excellence (ACE) awards over the years, which is the highest honor in the timeshare world and distinguishes those who have reached the most supreme level of excellence in the industry.

Designed to distinguish the top employees and organizations in the global timeshare industry, the ARDA Awards (ARDYs) have become the standard to which the vacation ownership and resort development industries measures success.

Assistant GM at BGV’s Grand Lodge on Peak 7, Nick Borovich shared, “It’s an honor to work for the employer of choice in Summit County. I’m humbled to be nominated as a finalist for the prestigious ACE Future Leader award.”
