, November 6, 2012
 –
Emily H. Fisher, the primary investor of the Emerson
hotel and spa complex in Mt. Tremper, New York, has purchased Dean Gitter’s shares
tobecome sole owner of the Emerson.The sale of the Emerson will allow Dean Gitter to devote his time to completing the Belleayre
project. “Emily and I have worked together for almost two decades to bring to Shandaken an
asset which has brought national attention to the town. At my age, I cannot continue to ride twohorses; so Emily will continue her stewardship of the Emerson, while I concentrate all my
energies on the Belleayre Resort initiative,” said Gitter.
The long-time friends, who shared a vision of creating new opportunities and jobs for theCatskills community, became partners in 1994 and in 1996 launched Catskill Corners which
consisted of the World’s Largest Kaleiodoscope and the Kaleidostore
. Now named theEmerson, the property has grown to include the Inn, Lodge, two dining venues and an award-winning spa. The Emerson continues to be the top private employer in Shandaken and one of the largest private employers in Ulster County.
“Dean’s passion for restoring tourism andeconomic stability to the Catskills is tireless,” said Fisher. “Working with Dean has been an
i
nspiration.”
 Fisher and Naomi Umhey, Chief Executive Officer of the Emerson, believe the success of theEmerson is directly tied to the success of local businesses and are dedicated to working closelywith the community. The primary strategy is to encourage all visitors to experience attractions,
events and local businesses in the area. Fisher states, “In addition to providing personalized
service and reasonably priced rates, we take every opportunity to upsell our guests on thebeauty, culture and vibr 
ancy of the area and the community that supports us.”Fisher’s son and daughter 
-in-law, Britton and Melina Fisher, have recently joined the Emerson
team and are actively involved in planning for the Emerson’s future initiatives and continued
growth.###
