Richard Behr Named General Manager of Miramonte Resort & Spa in Indian Wells, California
Indian Wells, Calif - Sept. 22, 2006 - Mark Hickey, senior vice president of operations for Destination Hotels & Resorts, recently announced the appointment of Richard Behr as general manager of Miramonte Resort & Spa in Indian Wells, Calif. In his new position, Behr will lead the resort's team and oversee more than $9 million in renovations this year.
Prior to his arrival at Miramonte Resort & Spa, Behr served as the general manager of the Hilton Scottsdale Resort & Villas, a Merv Griffin Hotel and positioned the property to compete in the upscale Scottsdale market. Behr also provided leadership for Arizona's Royal Palms Resort & Spa, a Destination Hotels & Resorts property. Behr began his career in the hospitality industry at the Phoenician Resort in Phoenix, where he served in various roles including concierge manager, guest services manager and director of restaurants.
Behr's appointment as general manager at Miramonte Resort & Spa marks his return to Destination Hotels & Resorts. As General Manager Behr will be overseeing more than 225 staff members, 215 rooms and a world-class spa at Miramonte. Behr will also help complete the property's $9 million renovation, which will include a new 6,000 square-foot ballroom and 3,000 square-foot event lawn, as well as the new restaurant design.
"Miramonte Resort & Spa is boutique in nature, catering to high-end seasoned travelers or groups seeking a tranquil, intimate experience with high levels of service and extraordinary culinary offerings," says Behr.

New Managing Director, Executive Chef, Golf Director Become "Dream Team" at Arizona Grand Resort, 3 Aug 2010 [cached]
Richard Behr, Colby Hutchinson, Chef Robert Graham named to elite positions, oversee legendary resort renovation
Instead of hiring one person, the founder of Grossman Company Properties hired a resort "dream team" that includes Managing Director Richard Behr, Director of Golf Colby Hutchinson and Executive Chef Robert Graham.
Behr comes to Arizona Grand Resort with 19 years of extensive luxury resort experience. Most recently, Behr served as general manager of Miramonte Resort and Spa in Indian Wells, Calif., where he oversaw a $9 million renovation. Behr's appointment at Arizona Grand marks both a return to the state where he got his start at The Phoenician, and a return to Grossman Company Properties where he worked at Arizona Biltmore Resort & Spa. Among his other positions in the industry, Behr served at Arizona's Royal Palms Resort and Spa and as general manager of Hilton Scottsdale Resort and Villas, a Merv Griffin Hotel.
"Arizona is my home and I am happy to be back," Behr said.
While Behr and Hutchinson are Arizona natives and veterans of the local resort scene, newly appointed executive chef Robert Graham has a far different story.
