He was fortunate enough to spend sometime in finance early on in his career, which has always allowed him a clear line of site to various ownership perspectives.  

Weber will collectively work with the hotels executive team to become the catalyst to creative and innovative strategic thinking and results oriented action planning. His proven path to success has always centered on his ability to initiate change in a property's day to day business culture. Although his approach is creative and innovative, it has a sound foundation, based in proven strategic expertise personally implemented in multiple markets during his career.

His direct training as a Six Sigma Green Belt has taken his belief in process improvement to an entirely different level.
