News for the Hospitality Executive
Mogelonsky, MBA, P. Eng.
Of all the positions in hospitality, none is more revered or desired than that of General Manager. When you reach this level, you are at the pinnacle of our profession, in effect, the proverbial “captain” of the ship!
The road to GM-ship can be long and arduous. There are many differing career paths that will lead to the position, thus, there is no single guaranteed road to success. In my numerous communications with GMs throughout my career, however, I’ve come to appreciate some of the essential traits that epitomize excellence. Here is my own personal list. Note the focus on the “soft side” of the business:
Larry Mogelonsky, a Cayuga Member and Associate with G7 Hospitality Group, holds a Bachelor degree in Civil Engineering, and an MBA from McMaster University. His first nine years of business experience were in packaged goods marketing in progressive assignments with Procter & Gamble and Pepsico Foods. His next assignment involved seven years as the advertising agency for Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts Worldwide. For the past 21 years, Larry has been president of LMA Communications Inc., a Toronto-based communications agency specializing in solutions for hospitality and tourism, and focusing on the independent luxury hotel segment. He brings a strategy-based, consumer-oriented approach to hotel marketing that reflects his multi-disciplined background.
