KENNEBUNKPORT, ME (August 25, 2016) – In a continuing effort to redefine coastal Maine’s hospitality landscape, Bill Bamford, CFO & COO of the Kennebunkport Resort Collection (KRC) announced strategic management changes across KRC’s diverse portfolio of luxury and upscale properties.

Corinne Finn-Heyl has taken the helm as the new general manager of Kennebunkport Inn and Cape Arundel Inn & Resort. In this position, Finn-Heyl will provide operational leadership and strategic direction for both properties. Finn-Heyl joins KRC from The White Barn Inn and Spa in Kennebunk, ME. With nearly a decade of experience in coastal New England hospitality, she also served as Interim General Manager at The Vanderbilt Grace in Newport, RI.

“Corinne is a dynamic leader who brings passion and a rich knowledge of the Kennebunkport area to our team,” said Bamford, who added COO to his KRC title in mid-December. “She is one of several strategic hires and management shifts made this season to strengthen our leadership team, further demonstrating KRC’s commitment to continue enhancing the guest experience at every property.”

Bamford also announced Holly Paradis, general manager of The Boathouse Waterfront Hotel and Grand Hotel. Paradis joined the KRC team in 2007 and quickly climbed the ranks at KRC, starting as a front desk associate, and later front desk manager at Kennebunkport Inn. In April 2013, Paradis served as general manager at The Boathouse Waterfront Hotel prior to a short stint as assistant general manager at the Kennebunkport Inn. As the new general manager of The Boathouse Waterfront Hotel and Grand Hotel, Paradis will be responsible for all daily operations of both hotels including revenue management.
