Canyon Ranch® has announced the appointment of Thomas Klein as its new chief operating officer, replacing retiring Peter Smith.

Klein will be joining the team effective Monday, April 11, and will be based out of the Fort Worth, Texas, office.

Tom joins Canyon Ranch from Fairmont Hotels and Resorts in San Francisco, where he directed all aspects of hotel operations for seven Fairmont properties in California as regional vice president /general manager. Born in Germany and fluent in German, he brings a wealth of international experience including previous top positions with Swissötel Hotels and Resorts (Chicago) and a variety of high-end hotels and resorts in the U.S., South Africa and Australia, including Ritz Carlton. Guided by the Canyon Ranch mission and core values, Klein is committed to preserving the integrity of the Canyon Ranch experience and upholding the standards for excellence at our wellspring resorts in Tucson and Lenox, SpaClub® facilities in Las Vegas and at Sea, plus the upcoming Wellness Resort at Kaplankaya, Turkey. Canyon Ranch knows it has a world-class operator in Klein and believes he will make a great addition to its team during a strong period of growth.

Peter Smith, who has graciously stayed on past his retirement announcement late last year and was instrumental in the search for his replacement, has agreed to help in Klein’s transition to Canyon Ranch. Canyon Ranch thanks Peter for his continued dedication and support.
