Resort Collection Welcomes New VP of Human Resources

Christy Smith of Bay County Board of County Commissioners joins the RC team

Panama City Beach, Fla. – In a year already marked by careful and calculated growth for Resort Collection, the company is pleased to welcome a new team member to its roster.

“Though it was with heavy hearts that the Resort Collection team said goodbye to Vice President of Human Resources Judy Johnson, who had been with the company since 1998, it is with great hope for the future that this Panama City Beach hospitality leader welcomes Christy Smith into the role,” said Resort Collection COO Mike Stange. “Christy brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to Resort Collection, and we look forward to her significant contributions to our company.”

Christy is a graduate of Johnson and Wales University in Charleston, South Carolina, and holds a degree in hotel/restaurant management. Since 1995, Christy has held HR roles in Bay County with companies such as Boardwalk Beach Resort and Bay Point Marriott, as well as Dale E. Peterson Vacations in Destin. Before joining the Resort Collection family, she worked in HR for the Bay County Board of County Commissioners.

“I am looking forward to bringing new recruitment strategies to further expand Resort Collection’s talented team of professionals,” Smith said. “We hope to brand ourselves as the premier employer in Panama City Beach.”
