FISH CAMP — Tenaya Lodge at Yosemite has named Dan Lyle as general manager of the 352-room resort located at Yosemite National Park’s south gate.
“The opportunity to join the Tenaya team and return to the Yosemite region is a special honor,” said Lyle. “I began my career in 1987 at the Yosemite Park and Curry Company, so my career has come full circle. I’m looking forward to leading our talented hospitality team as Delaware North continues to invest in and expand the range of accommodation, dining and activity options at this incredible property.”
Owned and operated by Delaware North, Tenaya Lodge is set on 75 forested acres, featuring a main lodge, cottages and new two-bedroom Explorer Cabins.
Lyle most recently served with Delaware North as general manager at Grand Canyon National Park, overseeing Yavapai Lodge and Trailer Village, as well as the park’s dining and retail operation.
A longtime hospitality executive, Lyle’s senior leadership roles also have included positions as director of finance for Delaware North’s Yosemite National Park operations and director of reservations and national revenue manager for Aramark in Phoenix. In the early 2000’s, Lyle managed central reservations for Delaware North’s reservations center in Fresno.
Lyle assumes the new role following the retirement of Paul Ratchford, who served as general manager for the past eight years.
Lyle will oversee the completion of the clubhouse for the Explorer Cabins, which opened in July. He will also continue rebranding projects for guests and associate engagement that enhances the stellar reputation that Tenaya Lodge enjoys in the Yosemite and Sierra Nevada region.
The Lyle family will be relocating from the Grand Canyon area after this school year and Lyle’s children will be attending school in Mariposa.
