Development Task Force Manager
“I enjoy working on different projects in a variety of locations.”
Experiencing new places and cultures.
My first experience was in high school at a hotel restaurant where I was introduced to hospitality. Catering positions in college led to Marriott Management Training after graduation and a career that has never ceased to interest me.
I love being empowered to bring ideas to the table and make decisions. It’s a unique ability to help shape not just the company, but the entire industry. Each day I come to work, I contribute to the overall success – as well as my own career.
I joined Coury Hospitality in 2007 as a General Manager. My first big project was with the newly-opened Colcord Hotel in downtown Oklahoma City. It was an amazing experience to work that closely with every detail of development.
Jeff began his career with Marriott International after earning an Economics degree from the University of North Carolina. He’s held sales positions in several Florida Marriott Hotels and Resorts before transitioning to Marriott’s largest franchisee at the time, Interstate Hotels and Resorts.
