Chief Operating Officer

“It’s exciting for me to have an active role in creating the future.”

INSPIRATION

Family, music, reading, food

LIFE

My journey began as a young apprentice in the kitchen. As I transitioned to hotels, I found a real sense of community that helped me grow into who I am today. I can’t get enough of the creativity, flexibility and dynamic spirit of the industry.

STYLE

I love starting with a blank slate – and ending up with something that brings people together. It can be as simple as the perfect burger, or as complex as a multi-million-dollar project. I’ve always admired excellence in all forms and levels.

HOTELS

In 2008, I joined Coury Hospitality to help lead and support our growing portfolio. It’s really something to see a thousand moving parts all come together at the right time. And I’m honored to have the chance to be a part of it all.

William’s career in the hospitality and food & beverage industry began almost 30 years ago. He has worked in places such as the Waldorf-Astoria New York, Ritz-Carlton New York, Le Bec-Fin in Philadelphia, serving in roles such as sommelier, food & beverage director, and general manager.
