Developer Story

Our private mountain club began in 2001, when the world was introduced to the vision of Promontory by an uncompromising developer with extensive experience in building communities and providing high-end hospitality.

Finding inspiration in the massive landscape that stretches over 6,400 acres, Promontory developer F. Francis Najafi saw the potential for a timeless mountain club for all ages — one that would be unconventional — neither a traditional ranch nor a mountain version of your parent’s country club.

Just a stone’s throw from Park City, generations of families could pursue active recreation amid a diverse array of superb amenities, while completely immersed in nature. The Promontory vision guided the creation of the development of unique club structures harmonious with the land. The architecturally diverse structures would allow family members to engage in their individual pursuits — and gather for joint recreation and celebration.


Promontory is a Pivotal Group Community. Founded by CEO Francis Najafi, Pivotal Group is a diversified investment company primarily focused on private equity and real estate. At its inception, the firm capitalized on profitable market niches by acquiring, developing and managing investment grade commercial real estate properties in the Southwest. Over the years, its portfolio expanded to include master-planned developments and landmark properties throughout the nation. Drawn by the unrealized potential of well-managed, middle-market companies with unique assets, Pivotal Group entered the private equity market in 2002. Today, with its capital resources, experience and expertise, Pivotal Group is well positioned for continued success in the private equity and real estate markets.
