Our Leadership Team
You won't just find us behind our desks. Our team brings years of travel industry experience to the table along with a plethora of expertise in a wide range of fields. Our passion for exploring, getting outside, and experiencing the world is practically tangible in the work we produce. This is the RootRez team.
President & CEO
After studying commercial tourism in undergrad followed by a masters degree in business administration, Jason was destined to end up in the travel industry. He began his career at a few large internet startups before spending a year backpacking around the world. In 2008, while working with the Sundance Film Festival, he proposed building a booking engine for their site. From the technology, RootRez was born. When not in his office chair, you can find Jason in his bike saddle, powering past you on the up hills, out traveling the world, or spending time with his wife and two kids.
Born and raised in the ski industry, Mark fell into the travel industry while working on the sales team at MountainReservations.com. After receiving his M.B.A., Mark joined the RootRez team in 2013, when it was simply Sundance Lodging Services. In 2016, he stepped into the role of Executive Director. On any powder day, you’ll find Mark whooping and hollering down the mountain and on sunny days, you’ll find him coaching his son’s soccer team, watching his daughter’s musicals, and spending time with his wife.
Senior Software Engineer
Chris came to RootRez with over ten years of web development experience. His background includes coding in a variety of languages as well as building programs from the ground up. When not behind his computer, you can find Chris playing hockey, drinking a beer, bouncing between countries, and organizing his fantasy football team.
Associate Market Manager
Starting out as a Customer Service Agent for a popular vacation company, Jaime started his career in the travel industry with his first job. After taking a hiatus doing partner operations for Walmart eCommerce, he has returned to working in travel by managing relationships with hoteliers throughout RootRez’s database. Outside of 9 to 5, you can find Jaime hiking, camping, driving through Utah’s famous canyons, and exploring local events happening around Salt Lake City.
As an avid adventurer, Nicole ended up in the travel industry following her passions. She comes from the outdoor industry where she worked for event companies and magazines. When not with her fingers on the keyboard, you can find her backcountry skiing, running, and climbing.
Director of Sales
Alan Gallegos brings 16 years of experience in the travel and ski industries to his role as Director of Sales. Starting as a ski instructor he worked his way up to Team Sales Manager for Park City Mountain before starting with RootRez. When not in the office, you can find him fly-fishing for Alaskan Salmon (and other fish too), skiing the slopes, camping with his family, or cracking open a cold micro-brew, even in Utah.
