Company Description
WesternTrust is a family run business focused on acquiring, developing, owning, and operating fee-based management businesses and other entrepreneurial ventures. It was originally established as Club Lespri, LLC in Park City, Utah in 2002. In the Fall of 2013, the company was rebranded to its current name, WesternTrust, to reflect the expansion of Lespri’s consolidated resort operations and growth beyond the hospitality sector.

WesternTrust business ventures can be grouped into three distinct Collections: Hospitality, Technology and Financial Services. While the three sectors may appear unrelated, all focus on offering professional management services that generate fee-based income.
