General Manager Announcement

We are pleased to announce today our new General Manager for the award-winning Candlewood Suites – Burlington.  Please join us in congratulating Austin Dudley for taking this next step in his hospitality career!

Austin began his hospitality career with us at the Hampton Inn & Suites – Burlington in early 2013, and has since been determined to take on and learn as much as we can give him.  We appreciate his dedicate to his team, and his ongoing commitment to customer service excellence.  This is a natural next step for Austin, and his new team at the Candlewood Suites – Burlington is excited to have him.

Therese Lundvall, the hotel’s past General Manager, is taking on a new position as Director of Hotel Operations at our Bellingham Holiday Inn & Suites slated to open in January.  Therese has been available for Austin for a couple of weeks to help him acclimate to his new position, and begins her new role today.  It’s been like a game of checkers for the past month, as our Front Office Manager at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites in Marysville, Veronica Verge, has taken Austin’s former role to pick up a different experience with a new hotel Brand at the Best Western Plus in Arlington.
