He followed his role in Revenue Management with multiple Hilton products in the St. Louis market while being based at the Doubletree Hotel in Westport.

Michael's background with the Starwood Brand, Hilton Brand, and most recently the Marriott Brand, gives him a diverse perspective in managing revenue strategy.  He has been nominated for Revenue Leadership/Professional awards for the St. Louis Area Hotel Association, Starwood Hotels and Resorts, and HSMAI
