Great Wolf names three new executives to senior team
POSTED 26 Jul 2016 . BY Tom Anstey
Erin Wallace joins Great Wolf from The Learning Care Group, where she led operations for nearly 900 childhood education centres across the US
Waterpark operator Great Wolf Resorts has announced the appointment of several executives to its management team, with Bryan Robinson joining as senior vice president and chief people officer, Greg Miller as executive vice president and chief development officer, and Erin Wallace as chief operating officer.

Great Wolf, which operates 13 indoor waterpark resorts across North America, will open a 14th location in Colorado at the end of 2016. Working as part of the leadership of Great Wolf, the newly appointed executives will aim to continue the company’s growth strategy based on expanding the Great Wolf brand.

Robinson joins Great Wolf from management at the Chicago Cubs baseball team, having served as vice president of human resources.

Miller, who will oversee international and domestic development for Great Wolf, previously operated as executive vice president for the Las Vegas-based Caesar’s Entertainment.

Wallace joins Great Wolf from The Learning Care Group, where she led operations for nearly 900 childhood education centres across the US. Prior to that she spent 30 years at Disney, operating in various leadership roles for the entertainment giant.

“The addition of Bryan, Greg and Erin serves as our next step in continuing to build the Great Wolf brand and business. I’m excited to have these talented executives join our company as we build more resorts and strengthen our team of 6,000 dedicated pack members,” said Great Wolf CEO Ruben Rodriguez. “Together, we will continue to improve our offers and operations, expand into new markets and further improve on the industry standard for family destination resorts. I could not be more thrilled to welcome them to our company.”
