Our leadership team

Brent Handler

Founder & Chief Executive Officer

Brent is an entrepreneur and pioneer of the destination club industry. In 2002, Brent and his brother Brad founded Exclusive Resorts. Brent served as the company's president from 2002 to 2009, during which time Exclusive Resorts amassed more than $1 billion in real estate assets, delivered tens of thousands of vacations worldwide, and set the standard for the burgeoning destination club industry. In January 2011—convinced he could improve on the model he helped establish—Brent, Brad, and their partners launched Inspirato, providing luxury travelers access to a curated collection of exceptional vacation options combined with expert trip planning and personalized service but without the six-figure, upfront fees previously common. Brent graduated from the University of Colorado with a bachelor's degree in business.

As one of Inspirato's founders, Brad focuses on corporate finance and strategic initiatives. For more than 20 years, Brad has worked at some of the world's most exciting and innovative companies.
