Chuck Griffith – Bluegreen Vacations

For some, customer service is a hassle of the job, but for Chuck Griffith, it’s an act of faith. Now a regional facilities manager, the former minister says that operating a church and counseling parishioners is very similar to his current work at Bluegreen Vacations, a timeshare club headquartered in Boca Raton, Florida, that operates […]

Perry Sanders – Monarch Casino & Resort Inc.

Chuck Pagnotta – The Briad Group

The party hasn’t really ended at the new AC Hotel by Marriott Bridgewater.

That fresh, casual vibe isn’t just reserved for resorts on the state’s east and west coasts. For Rene Martinelli, that vibe is perfect for the interior of […]

Jaime Palmer Walliker – RIU Hotels & Resorts

When Jaime Palmer Walliker joined Spanish-based RIU Hotels & Resorts in 2001 as a mechanical engineer working at the company’s Caribbean properties, he saw it as the logical next step in his career—a way to ready himself for the opportunities ahead.

Rob Chomiak – The Canadian Brewhouse

It’s a sense of optimism that’s not widely shared in the restaurant industry. Even before COVID-19 many chains were retrenching or revamping their business models.

A notable exception might be in western Canada, where The Canadian Brewhouse—a family-friendly sports bar and restaurant—continues to think big. […]
