D’Zurilla makes the move to The Lodge of Four Seasons from Crowne Plaza Ravinia (Atlanta, Ga.), part of Crestline Hotels and Resorts, where he was responsible for nearly all revenue of the large hotel and meeting space. As director of sales and marketing, he was also accountable for A&S expenses and managing the activities of the group sales, catering and conference departments.

At the Double JJ, D’Zurilla was responsible for launching the successful opening of the resort's 60,000 square foot indoor waterpark and entertainment center, while marketing ongoing seasonal activities that included their unique western equestrian program, an Arthur Hills-designed championship golf course, outdoor winter activities and all entertainment venues.
 
D’Zurilla has held similar positions for luxury resorts, such as The Registry Naples, Wyndham SeaWorld and The Fontainebleau, Miami Beach, Fla.; The Esmeralda, Indian Wells (Palm Springs), Calif.; and The Hamilton Princess, Bermuda. His hotel experience includes properties in the Chicago area, where he also held the position of president for the 25-member InterContinental Hotels Group's Holiday Inn Hotel Marketing Association.
