New Board of Directors Appointments

At a recent meeting of the WorldMark Board of Directors, two new Directors were appointed to the Board.

Gene Hensley has served on the WorldMark Board for over 13 years, 12 of which he served as President. Gene recently resigned from the Board effective November 8, 2010. Gene played an instrumental role in the development of the Club and was one of the key architects of WorldMark’s evolution over the years. He has remained a loyal contributor to the Club throughout his career and served as the driving force behind many programs that have become staple benefits for WorldMark including the development of the Charitable Giving Program, a program which has raised almost 2 million credits for charity. 

As part of the recent settlement agreement, the WorldMark Board agreed to appoint a new non-developer affiliated member to the Board. Because Gene recently moved to Mexico and has less time to devote to WorldMark Board duties, he graciously resigned his position to allow for this new appointment.

Gene will be replaced by Cecilia Cuevas. Cecilia has been an owner for five years and her background, education, personal and professional experience will make her a key asset to the Board and to WorldMark, The Club.

Peggy Fry recently resigned her position on the Board, also effective November 8, 2010. In addition to serving on the Board, Peggy is the Vice President of Owner Services for WorldMark by Wyndham. Peggy has decided to dedicate 100% of her time and energy to the positive delivery of world-class service to WorldMark Owners. While we will miss her on the Board, she will continue to play an instrumental role as a senior member of the management team.
Peggy was replaced by Gary Byrd. Gary has been a WorldMark owner since 2008 and currently serves as Chief Customer Officer for Wyndham Vacation Ownership. Gary has worked in the timeshare industry for 12 years and has been in the Hospitality industry for over 22 years. Gary’s industry knowledge and expertise will be instrumental in guiding the future of WorldMark going forward.

The other members of the Board include John Henley, Bob Morrison and Dave Herrick.

While we will miss both Gene and Peggy for the tremendous contributions they have made over the years, we are confident that WorldMark will benefit greatly from the fresh new perspectives Cecilia and Gary will bring to the board. The WorldMark Board has an excellent mix of industry professionals and highly qualified non-industry individuals serving your Club.
