Ian S. Maw, Director of Marketing & Sales
Ian Maw knows firsthand what attracts visitors to Harrison Hot Springs Resort & Spa SM. He left a top sales position at a leading downtown Vancouver hotel to live and work in the Fraser Valley. For him it's an easy sell when it comes to marketing breathtaking scenery, outdoor recreation and a grand hotel with an 80-year history.

When he joined the Four Seasons Hotel, a AAA Five Diamond property, he benefited from several years of in-house training that still pays off today in the exacting standards he brings to his role. He left Four Seasons in 1994, joining another Vancouver AAA Five Diamond hotel, the Pan Pacific where he managed group sales.

He was next appointed director of incentive sales at Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, going back to the group incentive market that he had been highly successful with earlier in his career. By 1998, he had returned to the prestigious Four Seasons and was appointed director of sales. Maw, well-known as a collegial team player, managed four group sales managers and a portfolio of key accounts.

Many students of the Hospitality Program at Vancouver Community College have also benefited over the years from Maw's expertise in the industry; he was a lecturer there from 1993 to 1999.
Today, he and his wife Nancy live on a scenic acreage with their cat, three dogs, and seven chickens. They have become an unofficial bed and breakfast for their many visitors from Vancouver who, like the guests at Harrison Hot Springs Resort & Spa, are attracted to the area for its beauty, golf, fishing and relief from the pressures of the city.
