St. Louis Park Hotel Welcomes New General Manager Lori Geiwitz

Plus, Former GM of Minneapolis Marriott West Hotel Promoted to Managing Director at Sister Property

MINNEAPOLIS, MN -- (Marketwired) -- 05/07/13 -- Spring has brought some big changes to leadership at the Minneapolis Marriott West hotel. While this Minneapolis suburb hotel was sad to see its former general manager go, they're happy he'll be taking his talents to another Marriott property. Plus, it also allowed the hotel to bring in a fresh face to fill the general manager position.

Former general manager Michael Clark is now the managing director of The Depot Minneapolis Complex, which is coincidentally where it all began for him. In 2004, he started at The Depot Renaissance Minneapolis Hotel as a banquet manager before moving on to be the general manager at the Minneapolis Marriott West in 2011. After two years at this Minneapolis hotel near downtown, he's excited to take on a new challenge.

With Clark leaving this Lake Minnetonka hotel near downtown, it left a space to be filled in the general manager position, and the Minneapolis Marriott West hotel found a well-qualified replacement in Lori Geiwitz. She began her career with CSM Lodging in 1998 as director of training. In 2003, she and Clark crossed paths at The Depot Renaissance Minneapolis Hotel, where she was general manager until 2011. She then took on the general manager role at the Courtyard Minneapolis Bloomington.

At the Courtyard Minneapolis Bloomington, Geiwitz had a significant and positive impact on associate satisfaction survey scores, a result of her focus on staff development, hotel appearance and technology. In her time there, three employees went through the manager-in-training program and found permanent positions in the company.
