INDIANAPOLIS, IN (June 12, 2019) – The Alexander, A Dolce Hotel in the CityWay area of downtown Indianapolis, is thrilled to announce Barry Cockrum as its new general manager. Cockrum brings more than two decades of experience in the hospitality industry to the 209-room, art-centric hotel, and will oversee daily operations, budgets, sales and marketing.

“Since joining the team in 2013, Barry has been a symbol of positive leadership and unwavering commitment to both our culture and brand,” said Richard Maxfield, Senior Vice President, Operations, for Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, Inc. “He has a proven track record with a commitment to excellence, dedication to deliver exceptional service to guests and customers, and the passion to train and professionally develop others.”

Cockrum has been with The Alexander as its Director of Sales & Marketing since March 2013 and has been recognized several times for his leadership, earning company-wide accolades like the Dolce Global Sales Leader of the Year award and the Global Director of Sales & Marketing of the Year award. Cockrum previously was a Senior Account Executive at JW Marriott Indianapolis, and the Director of Sales & Marketing for the Indianapolis Marriott Downtown and the Detroit Marriott at Centerpoint.

As an Indiana native, Barry’s passion for the community is apparent through his affiliations and board member titles with Indiana branches for the Leukemia Society of America, American Heart Association, and Professional Convention Management Association, among other organizations.

“The Alexander is now known for a certain standard of prestige which is attributed to our talented team that truly cares about each individual guest,” said Cockrum. “I look forward to continuing that legacy and bringing the best of Indianapolis art, culture and hospitality to all of our visitors, both internationally and within our neighborhood.”
