Breckenridge Central Reservations now a department under BRC

Breckenridge Central Reservation is giving up its status as a separate for-profit entity and instead will soon operate as a department under the Breckenridge Resort Chamber.

The move is really just a decision to simplify operations, according to Bill Wishowski, vice president of the resort chamber and central reservations.

Central will continue to exist and maintain its current operational status, he said.

Central reservations, which assists Breckenridge visitors with vacation plans, has been around since the early 1970s, but became a for-profit in 1994 after bringing in too much income unrelated to the resort chamber. It was still owned by the chamber, but had a separate board of directors and budgets.

“It’s really a decision to streamline our departments and how we manage budgets,” Wishowski said.

The Breckenridge Central Reservation Board of Directors have already concluded oversight; two members – Mike Hessel and Toby Babich – have been appointed to the BRC Board of Directors to help represent the lodging industry.

Changes to staff and staff responsibilities have not been made, nor are any expected.

To the public, everything will still be “business as usual,” Wishowski said.

“Operationally, nothing has changed as we continue to expand our scope of services offered to visitors to Breckenridge,” he said.
