Harrison joined Sage Hospitality in 2006 as the general manager of the Sheraton Phoenix Airport Hotel in Tempe, Ariz.  In 2009 he was promoted to Regional Director of Operations in the Full Service Division where he was responsible for four Sage properties and also led a $16 million renovation at the DoubleTree by Hilton Boston North Shore.  Previous to Sage, Harrison was with the Waterford Hotel Group, holding the general manager position at a number of properties.

“Corporate citizenship is one of Sage’s core values,” said Walter Isenberg, President and CEO of Sage Hospitality.  “Mike has shown uncompromising determination to both maximizing the value of the hotels he is responsible for, while also contributing to the many communities in which we work and live."  While in Tempe, Harrison was given the Community Service Hotel of the Year Award by both Sage and Starwood Hotels and Resorts.  He has served on a number of advisory boards and committees such as Arizona Hotel and Lodging Association and the University of Massachusetts Hotel Department Advisory Board.
