The Resort Collection of Panama City Beach Announces Appointment
April 19, 2008
The Resort Collection of Panama City Beach, the largest rental management company in Panama City Beach, has announced the appointment of Tom Sparks as General Manager of the Edgewater Beach & Golf Resort. Sparks has a 17-year history with the Edgewater Beach & Golf Resort, having served most recently as Vice President of Association Operations. In that capacity, he worked with the Board of Directors of the various associations and his responsibilities included overseeing the maintenance of the physical properties, buildings and grounds.
Sparks is a long-standing member of the area’s hospitality industry. In 1981, he relocated from Fort Payne, Alabama to Panama City Beach where he and his family owned and operated a beach hotel property. He became active in the Bay County Hospitality Association (which later became The Greater Panama City Beach Chamber of Commerce), serving as President and on its Board of Directors. Sparks was a founding director of The Greater Panama City Beach Chamber of Commerce and has served as President of that organization as well. Along with other area hospitality leaders, he was instrumental in creating the present-day Tourist Development Council.
“The recent shift within the resort’s management has been a positive one. As The Resort Collection of Panama City Beach moves forward, Sparks and the talented staff and personnel will continue to provide excellence in accommodations, food and beverage, convention and event services, golf and all of the other amenities that the Resort Collection is famous for,” said Paul Wohlford, Vice President of Sales and Marketing of The Resort Collection of Panama City Beach.
