Whitney Lemon started with In-Group Hospitality on July 1st with the transition of the Ogden Courtyard. She was performing some accounting functions there as a Crescent employee and will be taking over a large portion of our payroll processes in addition to other accounting and HR functions. She has great management company experience with Crescent, is a quick study, and will be a great asset to our team. She lives in Roy and will office primarily out of Courtyard Ogden and will spend a couple days a week in our Lehi office.
Michael Mclaws started with us at the end of July and brings years of experience with large Hilton and Marriott properties in Cleveland and Houston. As such, he has some great insight into the internal workings of Marriott and Hilton which will prove useful in in helping our accounting team better understand the internal workings of large property accounting departments and PMS systems like OnQ and Fosse. He is from Nebraska, a huge cornhuskers fan, and for that deserves our pity 🙂 But if we we ever put together an In-Group corporate basketball team, we’ve got our ringer.
Alyssa Trujillo was formerly working for PEG Companies in their accounting department focused primarily on development. She has an accounting degree from UVU, is working on her MBA at present, and brings with her some great insight from the asset management and development side of the operation. Alyssa also has some great hands-on hotel experience having worked at the Montage in Park City, Residence Inn in Provo, and Palmyra Inn in New York. When not crunching numbers, you’ll find Alyssa hiking or kayaking. Or doing homework for her graduate degree…
We are excited to have these outstanding individuals on our team and look forward to great contributions from each of them.
