Yesterday, was my last day as General Manager of the award-winning COMFORT INN & SUITES in Lynchburg, Virginia.
Today, I will transition to my new position as Director of Sales & Marketing for the same hotel.
The timing could not be better… last week we achieved our ranking as the #1 Hotel in the nation for the Comfort brand in LTR Score by Choice Hotels out of 1,001 hotels in the United States.
We owe our thanks to other managers of in the Comfort/Choice Family, including the Quality Inn & Suites that has offered so many great suggestions and to Heather Culpepper-Beeker who is the VERY BEST Area Director in the world with Choice Hotels.
Also, Jones Loflin, author of the best selling book “Always Growing” which inspired #TEAMCOMFORT in Lynchburg, Virginia.
And of course to my beautiful wife, Heather Knopp , our children Matt, Greg & Ameliah as well as our adopted daughters Elena and Kendele.
I would also like to thank our owners, Dave & Susan Francis for giving me this opportunity and the wonderful support and encouragement of our #TEAMCOMFORT in Lynchburg, Virginia. I am the luckiest guy to have held two of the greatest jobs in the world.
