VillaSport Launches a Nationwide Search for President


VillaSport Athletic Club and Spa has announced a nationwide search for a president to lead the company into its next chapter of growth.

VillaSport is a subsidiary of Syufy Enterprises, a retail and real estate holding company based in San Rafael, California. Founded in 2007, VillaSport boasts seven high-end locations in California, Colorado, Texas and Oregon. 

“With a core set of club assets and an established brand, we are seeking to expand the concept in the western U.S. Ultimately, our goal is to mirror the growth and success we achieved with Century Theatres,” said Joseph Syufy, the vice chairman of Syufy Enterprises, in a statement. “At this stage of our growth, we need a seasoned and focused leader who is experienced in growing strong brands.”

To lead this search, VillaSport has hired Russell Reynolds Associates, a global leadership advisory and search firm.

“We are confident that Russell Reynolds Associates will find a talented and energetic leader,” continued Syufy. “With their global footprint, Russell Reynolds Associates can access the strongest candidate pool available. Our goal is to complete this search over the next few months.”

For those interested in the search or the position, please contact Russell Reynolds Associates at jenna.fisher@russellreynolds.com; hoda.tahoun@russellreynolds.com; or emma.nosofsky@russellreynolds.com.

Laurie Smith, who served as the senior vice president of VillaSport for almost 10 years, confirmed she was no longer with the company, but wished the best for VillaSport and her former colleagues.
