White Lodging Appoints Justin Budyak as Director of Sales
and Marketing at the Marriott Hotel
in Boulder, Colorado

MERRILLVILLE, Ind., Aug. 15, 2011 -- White Lodging is pleased to announce the promotion of Justin Budyak to the position of Director of Sales and Marketing at the Marriott hotel in Boulder, Colorado.  Budyak was promoted from Senior Sales Manager, a position he held since September 2009.  While serving as the property's Senior Sales Manager, the hotel won White Lodging's Hotel of the Year Award in 2010, and Budyak received the Full Service Sales Manager of the Year Award the same year. He also was named Region 2's Full Service Sales Manager of the Year in 2009.

"We look forward to Justin putting his own stamp of success on our future achievements," said the hotel's General Manager, Chad Cuddy.  Cuddy went on to laud Budyak for his knowledge of the market and his dedicated preparation for his new position.

Budyak first came to White Lodging in 2004 while working toward his Bachelor of Science degree in food service management at Johnson & Wales University in Denver. He had already earned an associate degree in culinary arts from the same university.  When Budyak joined White Lodging, he worked in the food and beverage department at the Boulder Marriott. After completing his bachelor degree, he was promoted to Sales Coordinator at the hotel.

In 2007, Budyak took a position with SYSCO Foods Chicago as a marketing associate, where he was responsible for building and maintaining customer relationships.

Returning to White Lodging in 2008 and moving back to Colorado, Budyak was named Executive Meeting Manager at the Boulder Marriott before being promoted to Senior Sales Manager at the hotel one year later.

When asked to comment on this new chapter with White Lodging, Budyak said, "I am excited to take on a new challenge and look forward to growing with the company."
