Glen Ivy names new GM
By Jane Kitchen 26 Jul 2019
Scheel comes to Glen Ivy Hot Springs with over twenty-eight years of hospitality experience across food and beverage, spa and hotel management
California thermal wellness destination Glen Ivy Hot Springs has named Christopher Scheel as general manager. Scheel replaces former GM Clive McNish, who has taken a position at destination spa Kamalaya.

Scheel comes to Glen Ivy Hot Springs with over twenty-eight years of hospitality experience across food and beverage, spa and hotel management.

“Christopher’s passion for providing state of the art guest experiences is inspiring,” said Ingo Schweder, founder and CEO of GOCO Hospitality, owner and operator of Glen Ivy Hot Springs. “We are thrilled to welcome such a dedicated and talented leader who understands the importance of preserving Glen Ivy’s rich legacy while driving innovation and enhancement.”

Scheel brings with him a proven track record of hospitality management at destinations of all sizes. After beginning his career as a bartender, he worked his way to upper management. Scheel has overseen details at Holiday Inn, Choice Properties, Extended Stay America and Hilton Marriott properties.

A passion for brand development led Scheel to Sundara Inn & Spa, where he served a guest services manager before moving into the role of general manager, overseeing the design and construction of a US$20m expansion.

Most recently, Scheel served as chief operating executive of Heart of America Group in Wisconsin, where he led the build and opening of a Hilton Garden Inn and Steakhouse with over 10,000sq ft of meeting space.

Now, Scheel said he is looking forward to focusing his expertise on elevating the Glen Ivy Hot Springs guest experience to new heights.

“It’s an honour and a privilege to join the dedicated Glen Ivy Hot Springs team,” said Scheel. “Glen Ivy Hot Springs has been a renowned Southern California wellness destination for nearly 160 years, and I look forward to building upon Glen Ivy’s legacy to ensure that every guest who visits will have a lasting and memorable experience that stays with them for years to come.”
