Disney veteran to lead Avalon hospitality team



ALPHARETTA, Ga. – North American Properties (NAP) has tapped a Disney veteran to lead its hospitality program at Avalon and invested in a Ritz-Carlton training program for the Avalon team. These moves demonstrate NAP’s commitment to introducing a new level of service when Avalon opens on Oct. 30 in Alpharetta.

Wayne Rigsby will lead Club Avalon at the $600 million, 86-acre mixed-use Avalon. Club Avalon’s unique approach to concierge service will provide five-star services to guests and residents for a seamless and luxurious experience from the moment they arrive. That experience will be all about taking care of life’s little details. The concierge will be prepared to thoughtfully and expertly fulfill any convenience, amenity or desire for residents, shoppers and office employees.

“We are excited to welcome Wayne to the Club Avalon team,” said Mark Toro, managing partner of NAP. “As a seasoned hospitality manager, his extensive background with the Walt Disney Company will allow him to effectively oversee our one-of-a-kind concierge program.”

Rigsby launched his career at the Walt Disney Company in 2007. His exceptional leadership skills and commitment to guest services resulted in multiple promotions during his time with Disney, where he finished his career as the restaurant guest services manager at Golden Oak Club. Rigsby obtained his MBA from Stetson University and is currently enrolled at the Climer School of Real Estate.
