Sean Rush will serve as the dual assistant general manager. Rush previously served as assistant general manager for Renaissance Boulder Flatiron Hotel and Denver Marriott Westminster.

Alexander Lomas will be the hotel’s dual director of marketing and business travel. Lomas comes to the hotel from Denver Marriott Westminster, where he served as director of sales and marketing.

The dual senior sales manager will be Renee DeBell who has worked as sales manager at both The Westin Westminster and The Hotel Monaco Denver prior to joining the White Lodging team.

Britt Kupper will serve as the dual senior sales manager. Kupper previously worked for Denver Marriott Westminster.

Charles Fox will be the hotel’s dual sales manager. Fox began his career in hospitality in 2014 with JW Marriott Indianapolis.

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  

 

Although several cities are opening up again, many offices are still enforcing work from home policies. As they did when Stay at Home first began, plenty of organizations are still offering webinars with insights on how to tackle the new normal. Gaining new knowledge is a great way to use extra time that might have been spent on a commute. 

Here at M+E, we’ll keep the following list updated, as some webinars are live and some are pre-recorded. Please email lauren.pahmeier@tigeroak.com to add more applicable webinars to the list.
