Vail Resorts names Angela Korch CFO

Vail Resorts Inc. has appointed Angela Korch as EVP/CFO, effective Dec. 22.

She rejoins Vail Resorts from CorePower Yoga, where she served as CFO since May 2020, after previously spending more than a decade in successive leadership roles within Vail Resorts’ finance organization, working closely with the company’s current CFO, Michael Barkin.

“We are pleased to welcome Angela back to Vail Resorts as our new CFO,” said Kirsten Lynch, CEO, Vail Resorts. “Angela is a strong leader with deep experience in our industry, a passion for our sport, and a long history with our company.”

Korch originally joined Vail Resorts in 2010 and held various leadership roles, including VP, corporate and mountain finance, responsible for supporting the company’s mountain division during a rapid expansion of its resort network. During her tenure, she managed financial and capital allocation strategies, transformed core processes and played an integral role in the integration of 32 mountain resorts, the company reports.

Prior to Vail Resorts, she was an assistant portfolio manager at Muzinich & Company. Most recently, she served as CorePower Yoga’s CFO, where she helped the company navigate through COVID-19-related challenges, raise capital and return to studio portfolio expansion.

“It is an honor to return to Vail Resorts, a company that has played such an important role in both my professional and personal life,” said Korch. “I am passionate about the company’s mission and business strategy and excited about the direction Vail Resorts is headed under Kirsten’s leadership. Michael has built a strong finance organization, and I am excited to have the opportunity to lead this team, and learn from them, as we jointly pursue ambitious business objectives in service of all our stakeholders.”

Barkin, who announced his resignation in July 2022 to pursue personal opportunities, will leave the company on Jan. 1, 2023.
