Edward Walls, the general manager of the Diplomat Resort and Spa announced during the Greater Hollywood Chamber of Commerce breakfast meeting that he will be leaving his position.

He is moving to Georgia to manage a winery and resort.

“I have been living at 150 miles an hour and I want to slow down. I want to live closer to my mother and the rest of my family. I have done what I could at the Diplomat and I want a slower paced lifestyle. But I will come back for visits,” he said.

Walls has been a leader in the Hollywood business community and was recognized during the chamber meeting.
