USA, Adairsville, Georgia. November 05, 2018

The executive team at North Georgia's award-winning Barnsley Resort is pleased to welcome Andy Ippensen as director of sales and Gary Schneeberg as regional sales manager.

In his new role, Ippensen leads and oversees the entire sales program at Barnsley Resort and is responsible for all aspects of revenue generation at the property, including direct sales, catering sales and room sales. Ippensen joins the Barnsley Resort team with more than 15 years of experience in the hospitality industry, most recently serving as the director of sales and marketing for Cabin Bluff, Woodbine, GA, where he managed a team that tripled room revenue over the span of four years. Prior to that, Ippensen served as the rooms manager for Little St. Simons Island, as well as sales center director and leisure sales manager for Sea Island Company, and more.

Schneeberg joins Barnsley Resort's team as regional sales manager, tasked with building relationships with potential clients within key geographic markets in order to drive group business to the northwest Georgia resort. Schneeberg brings more than 40 years of experience in hospitality sales and marketing. Prior to joining the Barnsley Resort team, Schneeberg was the business development sales manager for Dalton Convention Center & Visitors Bureau, and has also held managerial and sales positions with Atlanta IHG InterContinental Hotels Group and Hyatt Hotels Corporation.

"There couldn't be a better time to bring in new talent, fresh ideas and connections to the Barnsley Resort sales team," said Shawn Jervis, general manager of Barnsley Resort. "This year we debuted the new 55-room Inn and 9,000 sq. ft. Georgian Hall, which has allowed us to not only host larger groups, but multiple groups simultaneously. We're confident that by bringing Andy and Gary on board we will be able to seamlessly cater to existing groups, and also bring in new groups and blow them away with the service and variety of amenities we offer, like golf, clay shooting, fly fishing and more."

Hotel Law: New Administration - New Policies

In a business as large as a hotel and in a field as broad as the law, there are innumerable legal issues which affect every area of a hotel's operation. For a hotel, the primary legal focus includes their restaurant, bar, meeting, convention and spa areas of their business, as well as employee relations. Hotels are also expected to protect their guests from criminal harm and to ensure the confidentiality of their personal identity information. These are a few of the daily legal matters hotels are concerned with, but on a national scale, there are also a number of pressing issues that the industry at large must address. For example, with a new presidential administration, there could be new policies on minimum wage and overtime rules, and a revised standard for determining joint employer status. There could also be legal issues surrounding new immigration policies like the H-2B guest-worker program (used by some hotels and resorts for seasonal staffing), as well as the uncertain legal status of some employees who fall under the DACA program. There are also major legal implications surrounding the online gaming industry. With the growing popularity of internet gambling and daily fantasy sports betting, more traditional resort casinos are also seeking the legal right to offer online gambling. Finally, the legal status of home-sharing companies like Airbnb continues to make news. Local jurisdictions are still trying to determine how to regulate the short-term apartment rental market, and the outcome will have consequences for the hotel industry. The December issue of Hotel Business Review will examine these and other critical issues pertaining to hotel law and how some companies are adapting to them.
