Artie Spector began his career in business with a highly-respected public accounting firm located in New York City that specialized in working with clients in the real estate industry.
Artie left New York and moved to Las Vegas, where he began his career in the vacation ownership industry. While there, he learned about the timeshare business from the ground up serving as chief financial officer and president before forming his own company to develop, market and sell timeshare intervals in 1984. He also was the first to bring the concept of a timeshare to the resort and gaming industry in Nevada.
Involved in every facet of the timeshare (now referred to as the “vacation ownership”) industry, Artie has marketed the right to use, trust, leasehold and fee simple sales programs. His expertise is constantly in demand as he is requested by both developers and lenders to consult on the marketing and management of a variety of vacation ownership developments, both within and without the State of Hawaii. He also has lectured at industry conventions and in the classroom, and currently serves on the board of directors of the American Resort Development Association, the industry’s leading trade association, where his opinion is highly regarded by other leaders in the timeshare industry.
Artie graduated from the City College of New York, earning a degree in business in 1966 and a B.B.A. in business with a major in accounting in 1968.
He established The Spector Family Foundation to promote the charitable interests and passions of the Spector Family and remains active in the interests of the community for which he and his family live.
