SHEBOYGAN, Wis. - WisconsinEagle -- Blue Harbor Resort is pleased to announce several key promotions including a new Executive Manager, Sales Manager, and Executive Chef. These positions will be instrumental in leading the day-to-day operations at the 179-suite resort and 39 private villas.

Previously Group Sales Manager, Delaine Reichert has stepped into the role of Executive Manager, transitioning to General Manager in 90 days. Delaine also served as Conference Service Manager, but additionally brings a wealth of previous experience to this new role.

An advocate for change, Delaine caught the attention of the Mayor with a letter to the local newspaper and was convinced to run for public office. Delaine won that campaign and served on the city council for three years, was appointed Director of Economic Development, and earned the coveted CED certificate by the time she was 40.

Over the next nine years, Delaine attracted $300 million in commercial development and added 600 new jobs to the community. One project was the construction of a branded hotel to support the needs of Cancer Treatment Centers of America, providing the opportunity to move into the private sector as an investor and General Manager. During this time her investment team constructed and operated six additional branded and independent hotels in Illinois, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.
