Director of Sales and Marketing
As the Director of Sales & Marketing at Water’s Edge Resort & Spa, Michael leads a world-class sales and marketing team while promoting the property that continues to set the benchmark of unparalleled luxury & uncompromised service here in Westbrook, Connecticut.
Michael began his hospitality career in Asheville NC at The Grove Park Inn Resort & Spa (GPI). During the 12+ years he spent at GPI Michael got the hospitality bug and has never looked back. A considerable amount of knowledge was learnt hands on through the different positions he held in areas such as the Front Office, Housekeeping, Sales, Catering & Marketing. Michael then took that knowledge of the industry to a community role as the Vice President of Sales & Convention Services for the Roanoke Valley Convention & Visitors Bureau. Having a hunger to return to hotel life, Michael then relocated to Park City Utah where he spent 3.5 years as the Corporate Director of Group Sales leading the Group Sales & Marketing efforts for Stein Eriksen Lodge, Stein Residences, The Chateaux Deer Valley and The Residences at Chateaux Deer Valley.
He earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Sociology from the State University of New York at Buffalo. In his spare time, he enjoys camping, gardening, mountain biking, boating, and hiking with his family.
