The team focused on marketing and special events for the Town of Vail recently added Liz Gladitsch to its stable of talent. Serving as a marketing specialist, Gladitsch will bridge the town’s economic development efforts to key boards and commissions including the Vail Local Marketing District Advisory Council and the Vail Economic Advisory Council.
An Eagle County native and key player in Vail Mountain’s marketing department for the past six years, Gladitsch brings deep and broad experience in brand, marketing and management to Vail. Her responsibilities at Vail Resorts included management and education of the Vail brand across all departments, and event, sponsor and partner management, making her a perfect fit for the Town of Vail’s focus on marketing and special events. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design with Business minor from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles.
Gladitsch joins Jeremy Gross, the special event coordinator who started at the town in June. Gross, formerly with the Town of Eagle and Vail Resorts, is responsible for supporting all event functions that occur in the Town of Vail, ranging from the Library Bake Sale to the Burton US Open and including everything in between. Gross works with potential event producers to vet their ideas for new events, reviews event permits and coordinates event needs with current event producers and all town departments. Additionally, he manages the event funding process for the Commission on Special Events and the monthly meetings and engagement from that commission.
After receiving a bachelor’s degree in commercial recreation and tourism from the University of Northern Colorado, Gross moved to the valley to work at the Beaver Creek Ski School. He has since spent time working at both Vail Mountain and Beaver Creek Mountain before moving into the public sector for the Town of Eagle. “I am very excited to be back working in Vail in a role that will allow me to have a positive impact here, working with many partners including the event producers, local businesses, as well as those who live and travel to Vail to participate in our world class events. I look forward to ensuring that all of our guests and our community have a positive experience when dealing with the town planning and attending events,” Gross said.
