At the helm of the development of Colorado’s first LEED Silver hotel project — and one of the first in the country — Gunion helped to forge new ground in sustainable development with the Westin Riverfront Resort and Spa in Avon, CO. “The resort fits the mold for new, efficient, and eco-friendly businesses that are the future of this state and country,” said former Colorado Governor Bill Ritter in a letter to East West Partners. In 2012 Andy assumed the CFO post where his core mission was to foster and strengthen East West’s culture of innovative creativity blended with dependable execution and financial discipline. Throughout his term as CFO, Andy also spearheaded expansion efforts into the Aspen market. In 2016 his hard work paid off. Andy is now dedicated to the community of Snowmass and will elevate its base village to world-class status.
Andy previously worked for Vail Resorts Development Company after which he obtained an MBA and Master of Real Estate Development from USC before returning to the Vail Valley. Andy is President of four HOA and Metro District boards and is on the board of the Vail Valley Mountain Bike Association. When not building trails he can often be found riding or hiking them with his wife Jamie and their Hungarian Vizsla.
