Leaving the mountains to be elevated

Kanwaljeet “Rikki” Boparai, the former director of operations at Cheyenne Mountain Resort, has been given his own high-profile show to run by Texas-based Benchmark Hospitality International. Boparai is the new general manager at the historic Bedford Springs Resort, on 200 wooded acres near Bedford, Pa. The landmark property, which dates to 1796, has served seven United States Presidents, including James Buchanan, who used it as his Summer White House in the 1850s. “Rikki is an extraordinary hospitality professional with immense style and a ‘whatever it takes’ commitment to success,” said Ellen Sinclair, vice president for Benchmark Hospitality. ”He is an executive who processes extensive knowledge of our business and is an extraordinary example of Benchmark’s culture and the positive environment we bring to our properties.”
