Inspirato

Founder & CEO

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 set the standard for the 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 in the industry. In July 2019, Brent launched the world’s first travel subscription service called Inspirato Pass. Through the service, Passholders can book a nearly endless number of stays or trips for a monthly subscription fee starting at $2,500 per month with no nightly rates, taxes or fees, whether you stay in a luxury villa, high-end hotel or resort, or take a cruise or safari. Brent graduated from the University of Colorado with a bachelor’s degree in business.
