Founder, Chief Executive Officer - Broker

At the core of our company’s leadership is more than thirty years of hospitality experience. Our founder is a Certified Hotel Administrator who has worked on the resort and conference property, sides of the business in the United States with industry giants such as The Marriott Corporation and ITT Sheraton. Conversely, he has experience with smaller hotel groups and at independent AAA-rated Four-Diamond luxury properties. His professional experience doesn’t end, however, in North America.

Prior to establishing Keys to the Lake, he served as Vice President of European Hotel Operations with the Regis Hotel Corporation headquartered in Dallas, Texas. Working in this capacity exposed Mr. Krantz to Radisson SAS Four-Star properties, and Europe’s Old-World style hospitality. While in that capacity Mark oversaw not only the European Hotels, but six properties here in the US. Furthermore, he is accustomed to working with diverse groups of people, as evidenced by his participation as Chairman of the Board of Directors of an International non-profit organization. That Foundation having offices in seven European countries.

Mark was first introduced to the industry as a teenager, when his family purchased Point Breeze Resort (the current location of the Hampton Condominiums) in Osage Beach, Missouri. In the late 1970’s he went to work at Marriott’s Tan-Tar-A Resort where his formal management training began. During that initial period, Mark worked as a manager in the Estates Division, overseeing the needs of individual Estate/Home Owner’s whose homes were part of Tan-Tar-A’s Estates Rental Program.

Although grateful for the various property types and complexities Krantz had the privilege to experience while working for larger corporations, he had always desired to start his own company.
In the aftermath of September 11, 2001, Mark began to lay the ground work to see that dream become a reality. By January 2004, Keys to the Lake was born. Today, Keys to the Lake maintains operations in every aspect of Real Estate, Property Management, Vacation Rentals, and Asset Protection Management Service, in the Lake of the Ozarks region.

Mark has been happily married to Terry, his wife, for 38 years. They are the parents of two grown children.
