PORTLAND, ORE. (April 11, 2019) – Provenance Hotels is pleased to announce the appointment of Andy Welsh as General Manager at Portland’s Hotel Lucia. Taking the helm as General Manager, Welsh will oversee daily operations, revenue generation, cost and quality management to continue Hotel Lucia’s growth in the competitive and ever-evolving Portland marketplace.

A graduate of Oregon State University and an MBA from the Atkinson School of Management at Willamette University, Welsh brings a deep and diverse knowledge of hospitality and destination expertise to his new post at Hotel Lucia. Beginning his hospitality career with Provenance Hotels in 2011, Welsh rose through the ranks starting as a front desk agent to front desk manager at Hotel deLuxe to task force general manager. In 2018, he led the successful launch of two of Provenance’s newest hotels – Lora in Stillwater, Minnesota and The Revolution Hotel in Boston, Massachusetts.

“We’re excited to have Andy take the reigns as General Manager of Hotel Lucia, the original member of the Provenance Hotels family,” said Klaudio Simic, Vice President of Operations for Provenance Hotels. “He knows this business inside and out. He’s confident and constantly striving to learn and do more. We are assured that, with his leadership, Hotel Lucia will continue to lead the pack in the Portland market.”

Named among the top five ‘Best Hotels in the Pacific Northwest’ by Conde Nast Traveler’s 2018 Reader’s Choice Awards, Hotel Lucia is famed for pushing the boundaries of creativity and style. Located in the heart of downtown Portland, Hotel Lucia is renowned for its photography collection by Pulitzer prize-winning photographer and Portland native David Hume Kennerly, hip accommodations, and dining at Imperial led by James Beard Award-winning Chef Vitaly Paley.
