I was referred by a previous colleague for an open position at the Hampton Inn & Suites, Newtown back in 2005.Having had a successful career in the SMERFE market at both limited and full service hotels, Gulph Creek Hotels saw my potential and offered me my first Director of Sales position. Years later the property was sold, ending my employment with Gulph Creek Hotels. Fast forward to 2018 and there was an opportunity for a Director of Sales opening at the Wyndham Garden York. I jumped at the opportunity to once again get back into the Gulph Creek Family. The company has certainly grown over the years, but the culture remains the same. The pillars on which Gulph Creek Hotels was built, are as true today as they were back in 2005! Of the things I appreciate most are the ability to have a work/life balance, respect and appreciation for my efforts and the open communication with ownership. I am happy to once again be a part of the Gulph Creek family.
In 2011, I started working for GCH at the Staybridge Suites in Royersford as a breakfast and social cook attendant. I was able to move from those jobs to the front desk after a few months, as time went on, I was given more opportunities for advancement and gain more knowledge about the hotel industry. I would help in maintenance and housekeeping before being promoted to front desk manager. In my first few years there I saw two GM's get promoted to bigger properties within the company, two sales managers be promoted to a DOS and the other to a GM, and the person I took over for as front desk manager was promoted to AGM. I witnessed first-hand that the company would promote people from within who showed passion, ambition, innovation, pride, and responsibility for their properties. After 5 years at the Staybridge I was offered an AGM position at the Best Western Plus in King of Prussia. While I was there I saw people from line level housekeeping become supervisors and front desk agents become front office managers. Jump ahead another 3 years and I was offered a general manager position. During all of these transitions and changes GCH has always had my back and my best interest to help further my career with the company. No matter the situation the GCH family will unite to help a fellow hotel in need. I have had consistent help from other GMs and employees at different properties. I have had regional managers help with landscaping to get ready for QA and even seen the presidents of the company help move mattresses and room amenities when a hotel flooded. The support that I have received from not only my direct regional managers, but all the people at the corporate office, other team members from different properties, and all the way up to Amy and Derek is the main reason I have never looked for another job in the 8 years I have been with the company.
I personally will always have a special place in my heart for GCH. I value the fact that they care about the employee as a person more than just an employee. I respect that fact that they are very hands on and actually care about the performance rather than just the dollar. Overall, they have taking many chances with me and have molded me into the person I am today. I am nothing short of a work in progress but its always great to know that even the President of the company is just a phone call away and always great listening ear.
I knew about Gulph Creek for over a decade before joining the company. They always had a stellar reputation of being an exceptional operator keenly focused on the guest and team member experience. I admired them and respected how their hotels operated. When given the opportunity to join the company, I jumped at it and never looked back. Why? Because GCH cares. They care about their properties. They care about their guests and they care about their team members. There’s a true sense of family and support from all involved. GCH is invested in creating opportunities for their team members. I am no exception. It’s been an incredible ride, a true professional honor and the journey is just beginning. Because we recognize the importance of time off for rest, recreation, and to take care of personal business, Gulph Creek Hotels grants paid time off to eligible full time team members. The amount of time allowed depends on your length of service. We also provide bereavement leave, medical insurance, dental insurance, retirement plans.
I've been in the industry for over six years, four of which have been with Gulph Creek. I've worked for one of the largest international hospitality management companies, yet they never displayed the level of genuine care and support that Gulph Creek provides. Gulph Creek believes in developing and promoting their employees, which aided in my transition from GSR to Housekeeping Manager. Ownership is intimately involved with each property, and values the opinions and feedback of all employees. It has been encouraging to see Gulph Creek's growth over the past four years of my service, and demonstrates to me that opportunities for advancement will continue to present themselves in the future.
At Gulph Creek Hotels, our greatest strength is our team members. We pride ourselves on offering advancement, professional growth, an exciting work environment, and a challenging career in the hotel industry.
