Spa, fitness, and lifestyle consultancy and management firm WTS International has announced the appointment of Catherine Warren as corporate operations director of its spa division. In her new role, Warren will oversee a portfolio of accounts and be responsible for strategy creation and implementation, resource management, brand development, and the integration and management of media assets.
“Catherine Warren brings a wealth of experience to our firm,” says Gary Henkin, president of WTS International. “She truly understands the luxury spa market and will be collaborating very closely with our spa directors in her new role. I’m thrilled to have her representing our company at a corporate level.”
An industry veteran, Warren boasts a number of high-profile positions, including vice president of health and wellness at Carillon Miami Wellness Resort, IBS spa software consultant in Richmond, VA, medical spa director and assistant athletic director at the Atlanta Athletic Club, and on-board spa manager with Steiner Leisure in the Hawaiian Islands. In 2016, Warren received the WTS Manager of the Year award as spa director at Eau Spa (Palm Beach, FL), formerly The Ritz-Carlton, Palm Beach. Under her director, Eau Spa received the Forbes Five-Star rating three years in a row, making it one of 60 spas to have received that honor.
“I’m delighted to join WTS International,” says Warren. “I’ve learned so much and really grown as a professional with WTS and I truly respect and appreciate the integrity, pursuit of excellence and innovation that only this company can boast. It’s such an honor to be able to work for the best in the industry. I feel such an allegiance to the entire WTS family, and there’s nowhere I would rather be.”
