RANGELEY (AP) – A former owner of Maine’s Sugarloaf ski resort has been named chief executive officer and general manager of the Saddleback ski area.

In his new job, Warren Cook is responsible for all aspects of Saddleback’s operations. Saddleback, located outside of Rangeley, is Maine’s third-largest ski mountain.

As president and co-owner of Sugarloaf, Cook helped bring the company out of bankruptcy and presided over its sale to American Skiing Co.

Cook takes over for Tom McAllister, who has been general manager at Saddleback for 31 years. McAllister will stay on as an adviser and assist in the transition.
