Liner joined the BGV family in October 2010 as the In-House Director of Sales and has been an integral part of the company’s success. In April 2017, he accepted the position of VP of Sales. Prior to BGV, John was a Regional Sales Director for Diamond Resorts International for more than 12 years working in Sedona and Scottsdale, Arizona and Maui, Hawaii.
Liner’s leadership skills were tested at a young age as he was leading Platoons and becoming Company Executive officer in two different battalions of the U.S. Army. He served a total of 4 years in the 18th Airborne Corps out of Fort Bragg, NC and went on to become a Jumpmaster after graduating from Northern Arizona University.
John possesses an immense passion for timeshare and the key traits necessary to lead teams to new heights. In John’s first four months of company leadership, he has effectively guided the team to one of the most lucrative first quarters ever experienced, anchored by the company’s best ever month of sales at $10.6 million+ of revenue in March 2017.
When asked about what he was most excited for in becoming the VP of Sales, John said, “I’d like to thank all those who have supported sales in so many ways for so many years. As I step into an even bigger role, I intend to always lead by following one of George Patton’s philosophies, “Instead of telling people how to do things, ask them what to do and watch them surprise you with their ingenuity!”
Liner’s passions outside of work find him enjoying the amazing mountain lifestyle in Colorado with his family while traveling extensively through his personal timeshare ownerships all over the world.
