The Spa at the Peaks is pleased to announce that Todd Shaw has joined the team as its new director. Shaw joins the Spa at the Peaks from the LaQuinta Resort and Club, a Waldorf Astoria Resort in La Quinta, California. He is also the Board Chair of the International Spa Association (ISPA) and has worked at some of the world’s leading spas, including Capella Resorts and Auriga Spa in Mexico, Austria and Singapore and Canyon Ranch in Tucson, AZ.

“I’m excited for this opportunity to join the team at the Spa at the Peaks and see a number of opportunities to build on our existing programming and offerings,” said Todd Shaw. “My philosophy is to create a comfortable, fun environment and instill confidence in everyone that walks in the door.”

As a leader in the spa industry, Shaw has dedicated years to spa and fitness management, and is known for his international leadership of world class multi-site resort and membership-based organizations. He prides himself on creating an employee culture that delivers service standard excellence, providing guests with a welcoming, integrated approach.

With the Spa at the Peaks, Shaw is looking to marry the environment and surrounding landscape of Telluride with the programming, bringing the natural essences of the environment into therapies through techniques and products. He also wants to leverage the opportunities with the fitness facility to focus on overall well-being and health, and provide a boutique feel.

“Todd has a reputation for innovation and service excellence,” said Bill Jensen, CEO of Telluride Ski Resort. “We are confident he will bring these same attributes to create a Peaks spa experience that combines traditional spa elements with overall health and wellness programming.”

Shaw has already relocated to Telluride and is working with the spa team preparing for the upcoming season.
