Ashley Lynch, General Manager (begins January 2022) – Ashley Lynch begins as RVR’s new General Manager on January 17, 2022. He comes to RVR after nearly 13 years in property management and hospitality in the Aspen area. For the past four years, he’s been working for Marriott International, managing the St. Regis Aspen. The RVR Board selected Ashley following a three-month nationwide search, based on his operational strengths in finance, budgeting, project management, customer satisfaction and problem solving. What impressed the Board as well, during the interview and hiring process, was Ashley’s leadership and communication skills.
Ashley has a bachelor’s degree in Mass Communications from the Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro. He graduated cum laude, then embarked on a career in hospitality management that took him to Seattle, Portland, Alaska, and Jackson Hole, Wyoming, before arriving in the Roaring Fork Valley, where he’s been since 2009. During this time, he has developed a deep appreciation of the outdoors, which is where you’re likely to find him on his days off.
Ashley lives in the Prince Creek area of Carbondale with his wife, Cara, and their two daughters, 8-year-old Azalea, and 10-year-old Camellia. In his spare time, Ashley enjoys mountain biking and exploring the wilderness surrounding Mount Sopris.

Ali Royer, Director of Programming & Community Engagement – Ali Royer joined the RVR team in October 2021 as our first-ever Director of Hospitality. She comes to us from Desert Mountain Club in Scottsdale, Arizona, where she was the Director of Lifestyle and Recreation. At Desert Mountain, Ali developed a new Lifestyle and Recreation department and was known for creating engaging recreational programs and memorable member experiences.
Desert Mountain’s Director of Club Operations said, “Ali helped build a culture of excellence by her care and compassion for employees, peers, and members.” She brings with her a wealth of experience creating programs and activities for members at one of the leading private clubs in North America. One of her key missions is to lead RVR on its journey toward significantly improved customer satisfaction and to drive the culture change designed to improve the RVR member experience.
Ali has a bachelor’s degree in English Literature from Arizona State University and a master’s degree in Education from Grand Canyon University. Her teaching background will be invaluable as she trains our RVR staff in techniques and processes to drive our customer satisfaction efforts.
Originally from Arizona, Ali is no stranger to Colorado. From 2008 to 2015, she worked in guest services at the Gant & Ute Place in Aspen, enhancing guest experiences in all aspects of their stay at the condominium resort and luxury home community.
In her spare time, Ali enjoys hiking, traveling, mountain biking, gardening, and cooking. She lives in Basalt with her golden retriever, Bernie, and looks forward to exploring the Roaring Fork Valley every chance she gets.

James Maguire, Controller – A resident of the Roaring Fork Valley since 2001, James brings nearly 20 years of accounting and bookkeeping experience with him along with a BSBA Accounting concentration through LaSalle University and CO Mountain College followed up by post-graduate accounting classes at Harvard Extension School.
In addition to his accounting background, he also holds a CO Real Estate broker’s license and manages several properties in Carbondale and Glenwood.
The combination of his accounting and real estate background makes him the perfect fit for his role of managing the day-to-day financial operations and assisting in the long-term financial success of RVRMA.

Travis Green, Facilities & Grounds Superintendent- After growing up in Grapevine, Texas – a suburb of Dallas, Travis pursued his interests in nature and ended up studying at Colorado Mountain College in Glenwood Springs.
Travis got his AA degree from CMC in 2005, with the goal of learning the landscaping business. That year, he started working for a friend’s company in Carbondale, then began his own company – Green Landscapes – in 2011. Travis’ company, which he runs in addition to his duties at RVR, does installation and maintenance on residential and commercial properties all over the Roaring Fork Valley. He meets clients before and after his work at RVR.
In 2020, Travis joined the RVR team. He is responsible for the maintenance of RVR’s irrigation and landscaping. He oversees a crew, and enjoys a mix of hands-on work and leading his team. He’s working to create a more sustainable RVR landscape that uses fewer resources, less water, and less energy to create a better product.
Travis recently completed training to become QWEL certified – that means he’s a Qualified Water Efficient Landscaper, with a focus on efficiency and sustainability. He’s eager to put this learning into practice at RVR.
Travis lives in New Castle along with his wife, Chelsea, and two young children Sadie and Etta. In his spare time, he enjoys hockey, snowmobiling, rafting, camping, traveling, skiing, and snowboarding with his family. Somehow, he finds the time to be a snowmobile guide in the winters at Sunlight Mountain, where he’s worked for the past 15 years in various roles – from lift operations to horse tours to brush-cutting trails.
