HANA - Danny Mynar has been named general manager of the Travaasa Hana, replacing Mark Stebbings, who is being promoted to managing director and will move to Travaasa's corporate office in Denver.
Mynar is a third-generation Hana resident and previously served as assistant general manager. He joined the property in 2002 as housekeeping manager and was later promoted to rooms manager.
He also previously worked in management positions at the Grand Wailea, Hyatt Regency Maui and Fairmont Kea Lani.
Mynar attended Hana High School and graduated from New Mexico State University with a degree in business. He serves on the board of Hana Maui Trust and is a volunteer with Feed My Sheep.
His grandfather worked as a groundskeeper and his grandmother as a housekeeper for the hotel, and his mother entertained guests and served in the food and beverage department for 29 years.
"This is a dream come true for me," he said in a statement. "I'm proud and privileged to have the honor of managing this iconic hotel that has been at the heart of the Hana community and my family for generations."
