Carmel Valley Ranch has announced the appointment of Anna Olson as general manager. Olson joins the resort after a long and successful career at the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa, where she served as general manager since 2001.

“We are thrilled that Anna was so enticed by our vision and plans for Carmel Valley Ranch,” said John Pritzker, principal of Geolo Capital, the San Francisco-based owner and operator of Carmel Valley Ranch. “The new Carmel Valley Ranch will be something very special, and we wanted to ensure that we found the right leader for our team.”

No stranger to resort reinvention, Olson led Ojai Valley Inn & Spa through a $120 million renovation, including the addition of a state-of-the-art spa facility, and introduced market-leading wellness activities, instruction and programs.
