For many decades, I have been known throughout as “A Result’s Oriented Leader.”
I worked as General Manager for six properties in addition to opening five properties and transitioning eleven properties. Also, I was Vice President of Operations and Marketing for five hotels. In addition, I was Director of operations for seven hotels and thirteen resorts and then promoted to Vice President of Resort Operations.
My responsibilities in management have encompassed over forty-years of leadership dealing with a large variety and types of hospitality properties. I have expertise in exceeding guest expectations. This inspires and encourages a cohesive workforce where associates possess high attitudes. I keep vigilance on cost controls and achieving outstanding profits for positive financial results and trends.
I was born in Germany, lived in both U.S. and Germany at various times while “growing up.” I became a U.S. citizen at birth as my father was career army, being born in Germany also provided me with dual citizenship being my mother was German. After finishing high school, I completed a four-year European trade school program in the hotel and culinary field. (1965) I worked through an apprenticeship program at the hotel Zum Riesen “Oldest Hotel and Guesthouse in Germany (four-star property).
