Longtime Jackson Hole Mountain Resort CFO Matt McCreedy Announces Retirement

Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR) announced today that Chief Financial Officer Matt McCreedy will retire after more than three decades at the Resort. McCreedy’s final day will be June 30; -Corporate Controller Braden Turner will lead the finance department as the Resort’s new CFO.

McCreedy (right) began his role as the Resort’s CFO in 1992, the year the Kemmerer family bought Jackson Hole Mountain Resort with the goal of turning JHMR into a world-class adventure sports and travel destination.

McCreedyplayed an instrumental leadership role in that transformation and contributed to many of the projects that now define JMHR, including construction of the new Aerial Tram during the financial crisis of 2008; construction of the Bridger Center to add guest amenities; opening the Bridger Gondola; building the Rendezvous Lodge for on-mountain dining; construction of the Cody House for the kids programs for families; adding the Teton Lift to open 70 acres of lift-served terrain; and many more.

McCreedy was also actively involved across the Jackson Hole community, including roles on the boards of the Teton Village Resort District and JH Air. He also oversaw the development of multiple employee housing units and the Stilson North Housing Development and the Stilson parking lot.

“Matt is a major reason for the success of the Resort over 32 years,” reflected Jay Kemmerer. “His steady and professional hand with accounting, budgeting, audit, insurance, banking, management information systems, and technology all were done very well. Bravo, Matt.”

“Matt McCreedy has been an essential figure and critical to the success at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort for more than 30 years. We congratulate him on his retirement and thank him for his vision and all that he has contributed in building our resort,” added JMHR President Mary Kate Buckley. “Matt’s leadership has helped the Resort expand in every facet of our business, and we would not be what we are today without his leadership. We wish him well as he shifts his focus to more time skiing, fishing, riding bicycles and traveling with his wife, Kari, who also worked for JHMR for over 20 years.”

Turner has served as the Resort’s Corporate Controller since November 2022 after previously working in various financial leadership roles for Rossignol for more than four years. He is a licensed CPA and also spent four years with global business consulting firm Deloitte prior to working with Rossignol.
