Andrew Neubauer III Appointed as Director of Sales and Marketing at
The 251-room Ritz-Carlton Lodge, Reynolds Plantation in Georgia

GREENBORO, Ga. May 18, 2012
-- Andrew Neubauer III, a veteran hotel executive with extensive sales and marketing as well as management experience, has been named director of sales and marketing at The Ritz-Carlton Lodge, Reynolds Plantation.

In his new post, Neubauer will oversee all sales and marketing activities and programs – including group and leisure sales, advertising, marketing, social media and public relations – for the 251-room southeast luxury golf resort – situated on 30 acres of pristine shoreline on Georgia’s Lake Oconee in Reynolds Plantation, an upscale golf community between Atlanta and Augusta.

After a ten-year hiatus, Neubauer is returning to The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company LLC, where he held a variety of positions at several properties from 1992 to 2002.  “We are thrilled that Andrew has returned to The Ritz-Carlton management team,” said Ralph Vick, general manager of The Ritz-Carlton Lodge, Reynolds Plantation. “With a varied background in group and incentive sales as well as management, he brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to our staff.”

With 28 years of experience in the hotel industry, Neubauer was also with Starwood Hotels and Resorts for ten years, where he was most recently director of sales and marketing at the 694-room Sheraton Nassau Beach Resort, a position he held for five years. Prior to that, he was at The Westin Diplomat Resort & Spa for five years as director of group sales.  During his earlier years with The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, he directed incentive sales for four resorts in the Caribbean and Mexico, and was also the associate director of sales at the Amelia Island, Fla., property and at The Ritz-Carlton, Huntington Hotel in Pasadena, Calif., where he also worked as national sales manager.

He has worked in management positions at Doubletree Hotels and Hilton Hotels.  Steadily climbing the industry ranks, Neubauer began his career as an assistant housekeeping supervisor at the Miami Airport Hilton & Marina and also participated in a corporate management training program, helping to open the Palm Beach Airport Hilton.

Neubauer holds a Bachelor of Science degree in hospitality management from Florida International University and an A.A.S. in hotel and restaurant management from Paul Smith’s College in Paul Smiths, N.Y.
