Named Senior Resort Manager of The Greenbrier
in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia

May 2011 - Jeff Kmiec, president of The Greenbrier, today announced the promotions of Todd Gillespie to vice president of sales and Robert Mickey to senior resort manager. Gillespie, formerly director of sales, led the resort’s group sales efforts to record levels for occupancy and revenue. His new role expands his sales leadership to include driving total resort sales and implementing enhanced customer service programs in all resort areas including resort activities such as golf and spa, as well as retail sales. Mickey’s responsibilities now include guest satisfaction and recognition as well. Continuing and improving on The Greenbrier’s legendary hospitality will be a key component of Mickey’s new role, particularly with the upcoming debut of the resort’s Windsor Club.

“Todd and Robert are two of The Greenbrier’s greatest assets. Their leadership and expertise have been integral to our recent successes and will be invaluable as we move forward,” said Kmiec. “These gentlemen are deeply committed to this resort, their team members, the community and state
and we are fortunate to have them as part of our team.”

Gillespie returned to The Greenbrier in 2009 as the leader of the group sales effort, after holding the same position at the Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo, Florida. From 2001 through 2008, Gillespie served as director of sales and marketing for three Benchmark Hospitality International properties: Bedford Springs Resort, Stonewall Resort and Glade Springs Resort. Before he joined Benchmark, he was a national sales manager for The Greenbrier. Gillespie’s extensive experience in hospitality group sales also includes Rocky Gap Lodge and Golf Resort, Nemacolin Woodlands Resort and Spa and Lakeview Resort and Conference Center. He is a member of Meeting Professionals International, Hospitality Sales and Marketing Association International and is a member of the board of directors for the Southeast Tourism Society.

Mickey first joined The Greenbrier team in 1998 as assistant golf club restaurant manager and was later promoted to co-manager in 1999.  In 2001, he was named assistant manager for the resort. The following year he was named manager of transportation and motor services and in 2003 became manager of guest services. He left The Greenbrier in 2004 to accept the position of transportation/fleet operations manager for the Sea Island Company and front of house manager for The Lodge. The following year he was promoted to front of house manager for The Cloister, then manager of butler services for The Lodge, assistant director of housekeeping and in 2008, director of room operations. He returned to The Greenbrier in 2010 as director of housekeeping and transportation.
