Try something new, any mistakes made along the way are just part of learning!

Family is everything! Nothing brings me greater joy than precious time spent with my two children. Helping them learn and discover new things, watching them make the right choices each day, all while shaping their future as responsible caring adults.

Equally fulfilling is spending time working beside our incredible leaders and associates. Working side by side, drawing on their individual creativity and learning with them as we challenge ourselves to be better each day.

I love the dynamic relationships with both of my families. My greatest passion is helping others succeed, and Maine Course has taught me hard work always pays off.

A man’s heart plans his course, but it is God who directs his footsteps.

Proverbs

I look at the hotel industry as a game board with many moving pieces. Things are constantly changing, and the challenge is to choose the right course at a given time. Working with every MCHG leader in the board game makes my career really rewarding.

My parents instilled in me an intense determination that helps, but the sense of humor they gave me helps for when things get tough. My strong belief in God and family has provided the basis to succeed in business and here at MCHG.

Outside of work I enjoy church, time with family and friends, hunting, fishing, and yes…the Cleveland Browns.

Corporate Director of Operations, Sales and Revenue

I’ve always been fascinated by what’s possible beyond what’s already been accomplished.

I like to think of myself as a “Mainer” even though I was born in Massachusetts. At the age of 11, I moved out of the suburbs of Boston to an old, rural farm in Union, Maine. With 120 Acres to explore, I found a love for the outdoors and spent hours hunting and fishing.

As the middle child of five, I understood early the importance of being the teacher as well as the student. This continues today with my passion for leading sales and hospitality-related classes and learning from great leaders.

Some of my greatest rewards are the relationships I’ve built and the friends I have made in the hospitality industry.

Adopting two children from Ukraine was a turning point in my life. Shortly after returning from Ukraine, my wife learned she was pregnant, and two children quickly became three. Having children changes most of us, but having three children in one year will definitely reset your orbit.

After moving five times in nine years, my wife Donna and I looked for a place to call home, and Maine Course was the place. The perfect fit.

My parents fostered my drive to succeed. My mother never accepted “can’t do it”, and my father’s academic and professional achievements did not allow much tolerance for poor effort. This drive helps me succeed personally, and also helps to encourage the best from the people I work with.

Corporate Director of Operations

The score doesn’t define you, but it is a measure of how good you are.

My high school lacrosse coach showed me the value of teamwork.  Putting your team first is more important than your personal accomplishments.  Being part of the state championship team was more important than being the top scorer.  This has guided my thinking throughout my career.

After graduating from Cornell School of Hotel Administration, I learned quickly how important it is to know your leader is always there for you and will never leave you hanging.

My competitiveness comes through in golf and skiing, where I enjoy time with family, friends…and winning.  But that special family time with my wife and sons is by far my biggest win!

Do unto others, as you would have them do unto you.

Parochial school

My real purpose in life is to be a good role model for my three sons.  Teaching them to laugh and enjoy life has been a true pleasure.  My parochial schooling guided me in bringing up my boys to be kind, considerate and respectful of all people.

Much of this translates to my professional career as well. I want to earn the respect of partners, coworkers, associates and clients. I want my reputation to be one of a driven worker and someone who does not expect more of others than I expect of myself.

Then there is my passion for golf. My nickname is “Hacker,” but I love it.  I enjoy the quality time with family and friends on the course (with no cell phones).

Everyone in society should be a role model, not only for their own self-respect, but for respect from others.

Barry Bonds

Role models changed my life. Both my mother and grandmother laid the foundation. My mother showed me that by giving of herself, she not only gave to happiness to others, but that happiness also found her.

My first employer, Bill White, was another great role model in my life, offering confidence and support early in my career. His support and faith in me helps every day.

I want to emulate these great people by being a good role model for my daughter and granddaughter. And, for that matter, my entire MCHG family, too!

I’m an avid runner and outdoor person. I enjoy hiking, biking and running with friends.

Controller

Being a leader is more than managing the accounting department. It’s also being a positive role model and taking care of the people, and that’s so much more rewarding.

My dad instilled a good work ethic and set of values while raising seven children.  His sense of hard work, family, integrity, and honesty were similar to the values instilled at Maine Course.  Maine Course truly is like family. That is a primary reason I have stayed here for more than 20 years.

Working full-time while parenting was important to me.  As a wife, hockey mom and mother of a college student, the work ethic my dad taught me made the difference. I’m blessed to be a part of a company that encourages me to enjoy my family.

My dog Neely is a constant reminder that the simple things in life are most important.  Even if it’s been a bad day, he makes me realize that everything will be ok.

Set the pace! Take care of our people and they’ll take care of our guests!

My father never graduated from high school, but he was such a smart man. He said if you help enough people get what they need, you will be successful.

I learned that giving to the community was important at all levels of life. He taught me that no matter how much education you had or how smart you were, attitude and hard work would determine your destiny.

My mother taught me that unconditional love and respect are what makes us successful in life.  Mom and Dad believed that there had to be fun infused in every aspect of life. Guess you can see where my sense of humor started!

I look at Maine Course values and have to thank Mom and Dad for their influence.  Integrity, respect, fun and family – the MCHG purpose is to positively impact lives.

My whole family is part of Maine Course. I am proud that they espouse the same values.

My upbringing lead me to Maine Course. I call every shift at every hotel on Christmas and Thanksgiving.

I deliver popsicles on hot days to hotels. And I call night auditors on a regular basis at 4 a.m.

Crazy? Yes! Fun? Yes…but that’s me!!! And that’s Maine Course!
