Jeff’s hospitality career began more than 30 years ago in South Florida and has included more than a dozen full-service hotels in six states as well as owning two restaurants. He has worked with a number of hotel brands, including Marriott, IHG, and Hilton. His awards include General Manager of the Year, Most Improved Marriott in the World for Guest Service and Overall Satisfaction, and Best Customer Experience in for two consecutive years.

“Together, we’re stronger” is a quote that has guided much of his career. Jeff has been an integral part of the leadership for several community or state hotel associations. Whether it has included educating politicians, securing additional tourism funds, or focusing various hotel leaders on a common goal.

Jeff understands the importance of using his talents and experience to help the overall industry. Adept at developing talent, his past team members continue to be recognized in their respective communities in high level positions. Jeff’s desire to develop others has extended beyond his management teams to organizing hospitality management high school programs and finding ways to help introduce our industry to organizations who focus their efforts on special needs individuals.
