This feature is a question-and-answer session with a new Blount County Chamber member. So, here we go with our 115th installment visiting with Eric Moser, owner of Gold Crown Vacation Club, which was created to provide the best family & business vacation options and prices.
Gold Crown Vacation Club sounds interesting, can you tell me more?After spending time with some of the largest hospitality organizations in the world, Gold Crown’s executive team recognized a need for a fair, transparent and straight forward hospitality organization that puts INTEGRITY first. Families and businesses, who know the importance of getting away and taking a vacation do so hoping that those self proclaimed experts they turn to with there hard earned vacation dollars have their best interest in mind. To often this is not the case and those so called “Experts” are truly just interested in maximizing their own incomes rather than truly providing the best vacation experience at the best price to hard working families. Gold Crown Vacation Club was formed out of distain for those who assume the title “The Very Best In The Hospitality Industry” without requiring the very best from themselves. Gold Crown Vacation Club Guarantees to perform day to day operations with the highest standards in INTEGRITY while providing the very best pricing, best location, best amenities and 100% transparency so our clients can rest assure their vacation dollars our getting the most value.

How did you get started? I started in the hospitality industry working in companies like Westgate, Holiday Inn, Wyndham and Summer Bay Resorts. I spent a brief tenure within these organizations to better understand their respective product offerings and identify true vacation value. One thing that was obvious in each one of the organizations is that the real value was in the club.....The problem was each developer (Resort) would only offer a one year membership in their respective club in an effort to bring you back the following year and sell timeshare once again. Once you bought timeshare you had access to the club but by that point you were on the hook for 40k in timeshare. The truth of it, most people end up using the club more than their 40k dollar timeshare. I saw an opportunity to bring the club directly to the public but also went a step further and created a business program that caters directly to businesses and their employees. This is the first of its kind available in East TN.
What is your background?

Who is your mentor? Thats easy my parents.....I have met amazing people throughout my career but my greatest source of inspiration and my anchor has always been mom and dad. A few honorable mentions would have to be Doug Monahan (Owner Sunset Direct and Entrepreneur of the year multiple times) Ken Newman (VP of Sunset Direct and lifelong friend)

Describe your customers. Anyone who travels or vacations at least once a year and does not want to spend 40k dollars the next 10 years doing it.
