Joel Bedor

A former CPA, Bedor’s first venture was in 1983, a partnership in the Mount Washington Cog Railway, where he managed the investment needed to make a sorely neglected railway a successful enterprise. In 1991, he brought the same kind of expertise to an effort to draw investment to restore the Mount Washington Hotel. Realizing that hands-on management was an equal partner with capital in the formula for success, he began to guide the effort in a financially sound fashion that has resulted in a thriving business and a beautifully restored grand hotel  serving guests, the community and the state of New Hampshire. He served as the hotel’s co-managing director as well as the chief financial officer until 2006, when the hotel and a one thousand unit land development component was sold to CNL Income Properties.  Joel now operates his own investment firm, Bedor Managment and Investments LLC, with his son while focusing on developing the John Newcombe Estate and Country Club.
