Brian Hutchins joins White Lodging as regional vice president, Urban & Lifestyle, and Nicole Coghlan was promoted from general manager to regional director of operations, Suburban Select.

"Brian and Nicole join an industry-leading team of operations leaders that relentlessly pursue excellence across the White Lodging portfolio – for our guests, our associates and our owners," said Ken Barrett, president and CEO, Hospitality Management at White Lodging.

Hutchins joins White Lodging from Wischermann Partners where he oversaw all hotels within the company's portfolio as vice president of operations.

"White Lodging is one of the most passionate and driven organizations in the hospitality industry and I'm thrilled to join such a skilled team that is committed to genuinely taking care of guests and associates," said Hutchins.

Nicole takes on her new role after serving as a general manager at White Lodging for the past six years. Prior to her latest role at the Hilton Garden Inn Hoffman Estates, she was a general manager at the Hyatt Place Chicago/Itasca for two years. She also brings experience from a variety of leadership positions at Indian Lakes Resort, Doubletree by Hilton and Hyatt Regency.
