A sports lover, Brandt has always wanted to be on the best team. So the choice was clear when White Lodging recruited him in March 2015 to be the general manager at Embassy Suites in West Palm Beach, Florida. And it didn’t take long to score a win — by the end of the year, he’d earned the prestigious White Lodging “Rookie General Manager of the Year” award and quickly earned a promotion to General Manager of the Aloft Louisville Downtown.
Brandt loves the challenge of using his degree in Organizational Leadership from the University of Cincinnati, but he also appreciates the opportunity to have a life outside of work. He says he joined White Lodging so he could be part of a premier organization that would let him level up his career and his life.
With a winning season already in the books, he’s looking forward to further developing his skills and cultivating success for his team in his new position — he was recently promoted to general manager of the Westin Austin Downtown in Austin, Texas.
