BURKE -- Tim McGuire, the longtime vice president and general manager of Burke Mountain resort is leaving Burke, he announced over the weekend.

The resort is now named Q Burke Mountain after it was bought last summer by investors Bill Stenger and Ari Quiros. Ary Quiros, son of Burke co-owner Ari Qurios, was named CEO of the resort earlier in the year. McGuire leaves only a few weeks after four management staff lost their jobs.

"It is with both sadness and excitement that I let you know I am leaving Burke Mountain effective the end of this month," McGuire said in his email sent on Saturday morning. "I have enjoyed working at a beautiful mountain and special community with a terrific staff for over the past seven and a half years."

McGuire's note continued, "I will soon be starting with VHB, a top Planning, Transportation, Land Development, and Environmental Consulting firm based out of their Burlington, Vt. office. My family and I plan to remain part the Burke community in the future," he said.

"I hope to stay involved with Burke in the future in a consulting role with anticipation of good things to come for the mountain and community," promised McGuire.

Sam Sanderson, longtime selectman in the Town of Burke, where McGuire has been a familiar face at more selectman's meetings than not the past five or so years, said, "We had heard for awhile that this might be happening, but we don't pay too much attention to rumors," he said. Burke officials and residents have lived through many owners of the mountain and promises of what is to come, and meet plans with a degree of skepticism.

"We had a good working relationship with Tim," Sanderson continued. "Seemed like he tried to keep us informed of what was going on, knowing we don't like surprises," continued Sanderson.

According to Bill Stenger, in an email on Monday, "Tim came to Burke as an engineer to guide the development needs of the area as a civil engineer. Because the Ginn development (the resort's former owners) didn't go forward, he was asked to manage the area."

"Today the new development has several firms that we rely on for engineering support. Tim has chosen one of these firms to work for full time," explained Stenger. "This will allow him to continue to help us develop Burke but also advance his career in engineering with one of New England's best engineering firms"

Stenger went on, "It is a good move for Tim and family and I am especially happy he will be working on our projects through their completion. He is a talented professional and I'm glad those talents will be used full time by us and other Vermont projects such as our Newport projects as well."

As for the plans about to commence to build Burke's first-ever hotel and other amenities, Stenger said things will soon begin happening, "Things are moving fast now with fundraising. ... Much to follow in the next few weeks."
