White Lodging Names New General Managers For Seven Properties

Claire Doty has been promoted to general manager of the Residence Inn Chicago Southeast/ Hammond. Previously, Doty was the assistant general manager at the SpringHill Suites Schaumburg in Illinois. Before joining the SpringHill Suites in Schaumburg in 2012, Doty gained experience at the Midway Hotel Center as operations manager of the Holiday Inn Express and cluster event coordinator and interim event manager for the entire complex from 2010-2011. Doty's first position with White Lodging was housekeeping supervisor at the Courtyard Midway in 2009. Prior to her experience with White Lodging, Doty also worked for the Radisson Hotel Lansing and Doubletree Hotel Dearborn with Winegardner & Hammons, Inc. as a rotational management intern.

"I want to thank all of my fellow White Lodging leaders past and present for all of their support and guidance. I hope to add my hotel knowledge and past leadership experiences to the Hammond cluster and am looking forward to being part of a great team," said Doty.

Ashley Wilson has been promoted to general manager of the Courtyard Dallas/Mesquite in Texas. Most recently, Wilson was the assistant general manager of the Hilton Garden Inn Austin North. Wilson joined White Lodging in March 2011 as a guest service representative and sales coordinator at the SpringHill Suites Austin South. In October of 2011, she was promoted to operations manager at the Fairfield Inn & Suites Austin South. Prior to her experience with White Lodging, Wilson worked as a front desk service representative, night auditor, sales coordinator and assistant general manager for the La Quinta inn Austin Capitol with LQ Management, LLC.

"I am honored to be given the opportunity to manage this hotel. I would like to thank the many White Lodging managers who acted as mentors and pushed me to prove what I am capable of accomplishing," said Wilson. "The Courtyard Mesquite will be a fun challenge since there are not any other hotels in the area. It is much different than the 'cluster life' I was used to in Austin."

Jon Gustin has been promoted to general manager of the Courtyard Houston Galleria in Texas. Previously, Gustin was the dual assistant general manager of the Residence Inn and SpringHill Suites Chicago River North. Gustin brings over seven years of hospitality experience to his new role, including a rich history with White Lodging in management at properties such as the Courtyard Valley Forge/ Collegeville in Pennsylvania, the Residence Inn in Detroit/ Pontiac and Residence Inn Detroit Novi in Michigan. Prior to his experience with White Lodging, Gustin was a front desk supervisor with the Detroit Livonia Marriott.

"I am excited for my next opportunity with White Lodging. White Lodging continues to provide excellent opportunities for me and I plan to continue to prove value for White Lodging. However, my opportunities are only presented to me because of the great associates that have worked so hard for each hotel I have worked at in the past six years," said Gustin.
