HOT SPRINGS, Va. – Longtime luxury resort executive Mark Spadoni has taken the reins as managing director for The Omni Homestead.
For the past 20 years, Spadoni has served as the general manager for the AAA Four-Diamond Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa and Club at Savannah Harbor.
“I am incredibly honored to be joining the Omni family and to take the helm of such an iconic resort. The Homestead’s reputation as one of the grand dames of American resorts is well known in the industry, and I’m looking forward to continuing and building on that legacy,” said Spadoni. “As an avid golfer, I’m very excited to reacclimate myself with The Cascades and Old Course.”
Spadoni is recognized for creating the Savannah Harbor Foundation, known for its family-friendly events and support of children’s charities. In March 2020, Spadoni received the Savannah
Tourism Council’s Lifetime Achievement Award, becoming only the third recipient in the organization’s 22-year history. Additionally, he has served on the board of directors for the Savannah Convention Center, Savannah Tourism Council, Visit Savannah (CVB), and Savannah Chamber of Commerce.
