 Richard A. Ross

Ross joins The Omni Homestead Resort with over 30 years of operations, sales, marketing and multi-property leadership experience. He has relocated from Dallas, Texas where he was most recently vice president of sales for Remington Hotels.

Prior to The Omni Homestead, Ross worked with brands including Hershey, Westin and Hilton Hotels. While at Hilton Hotels, he was the first leader assigned to the pre-opening team of the $285 million Buffalo Thunder Golf Resort & Spa in Santa Fe, NM. Ross also spent three years leading sales and marketing efforts for the beachfront Hilton Sandestin Golf Resort & Spa in Florida.

In his free time, Ross enjoys the outdoors, history and sports. He is joined by his partner Rob and their pet cats, Oscar and Simon. He looks forward to exploring the Hot Springs area and all the vibrant nature, rich history and myriad of unique activities offered on property.
