We took a minute out of Sacha Swansburg’s busy day at Attitash Mountain Village to talk shop. A lot goes on behind the scenes at a resort with over 350 guest rooms and a total of more than 7,000 vacation owners. From developing employee training manuals, to collecting guest reviews and distributing to the management team, there’s a ton of work to keep our staff and our resort at the award-winning levels we pride ourselves on.
Check out our conversation:
Sacha, what is your current role here at the Berry Companies?
I’m currently the Assistant to the General Manager and Chief Operating Officer of the company.
What’s your favorite part of the job?
What I appreciate most about my job is that I have the privilege to work with an incredibly diverse team of people.
What does your job entail – what’s your typical day look like?
Honestly, for the most part, I may not know what my day is going to look like until I’m in it. I could be in meetings, doing research for a project, off-site with vendors, or assisting a department with daily operations. It really depends on where the immediate need is.
What drew you to the Berry Companies originally?
The main reason I was drawn here was the potential to grow within the company.
What did you do before coming here?
My career has solely been in the hospitality/service industry. Prior to joining AMSCO, I was the GM of a boutique hotel.
What did you use to daydream about being when you grew up?
My dream for as long as I can remember is to someday own and operate a Bed & Breakfast in Northern N.H.
What do you do outside of work?
Outside of work I spend as much time as I can with my family. We are all avid outdoor people and love, hiking, mountain biking, skiing, snowmobiling, and side by side riding the trail system in northern N.H.
What’s something on your bucket list?
I don’t have any grandiose bucket list items; however, when the day comes that I am in The Magic Kingdom with my children and their children, my bucket will be full.
Any random facts about you that you’d like to share with us?
I try to live each day with intention and be the best version of myself while continuously striving to learn and grow. I love to be challenged professionally and personally.
If Hollywood made a movie about your life, who would you like to see cast as you?
I think Sandra Bullock would be an appropriate actress to portray me in a Hollywood film.
Thanks for the time Sacha! We hope you enjoy the outdoors with your family often this fall.
