of Toll House Hotel in Los Gatos, California

LOS GATOS, CA (February 5, 2013)
– Toll House, Los Gatos’ leading luxury hotel, is pleased to announce Jim Gerney as the new General Manager. Gerney joins the MetWest Terra management team with more than 26 years of hospitality experience. Gerney will be responsible for managing the entire food, beverage, meetings and rooms operations of the property, while orchestrating and maintaining the exceptional service standards Toll House is acclaimed for.

“Jim brings with him an extensive background in hospitality management,” said Jamie Yarrow, President and COO, MetWest Terra Hospitality. “His depth of experience, passion for hospitality and dedication to superior guest services makes him an extremely valuable addition to our team.”

Gerney began his dynamic hospitality career in 1986 with then Pittsburgh-based Interstate Hotels Corporation. His 14-year tenure at Interstate coincided with the company’s tremendous growth transitioning itself from an operator of 29 hotels in 1989 to 230 hotels and resorts by 2000, in which Gerney became an operations task force leader with each appointment at Interstate assisting with multiple hotel openings and conversions across the United States. Over the course of his career in the San Francisco Bay Area, Gerney was the General Manager for the Canterbury Hotel and Joie de Vivre’s Maxwell Hotel, as well as Managing Director of Hotel Kabuki. Prior to his new position with Toll House, Gerney was the Regional General Manager for Larkspur Hotels for their San Francisco Collection including Hotel Abri, Villa Florence and Hotel Union Square.
