The Lodge at Edgewood Tahoe Names John D. Bradway II as Director of Marketing and Sales

USA, Lake Tahoe, California. December 20, 2018

-Edgewood Tahoe, set along the beautiful shoreline of South Lake Tahoe, is thrilled to announce John D. Bradway II as its Director of Marketing and Sales.

Opened June 2017, The Lodge at Edgewood Tahoe is the recent addition to the 235-acre lakefront resort best known for its acclaimed 18-hole course. Bradway will be ushering in an era of new leadership while bringing the LEED-designed mountain lodge national recognition as a luxury destination.

Bradway received his Bachelor's in Hospitality and Marketing Operations from Cornell University and spent thirteen years honing his craft at The Breakers Palm Beach where he ascended from assistant club operations manager to director of reservations to director of strategic marketing and ultimately, director of innovation. During his tenure, Bradway championed an extensive three-year strategic study of The Breakers brand resulting in a differentiated and authentic brand platform to increase operating margins and profitability.

Bradway's distinguished resume also includes time as director of marketing at Round Hill Hotel & Villas in Montego Bay, Jamaica, and senior director of brand management at Denihan Hospitality Group in Manhattan. In just under three years as Vice President of Brand Management, he developed the entire marketing and branding program at the Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa brand (formerly Ritz-Carlton Palm Beach) and increased total revenues by 13%, occupancy by 15.3%, and market penetration by 35%. As Director of Sales and Marketing at Cliff House in Maine, Bradway notably led the rebranding and repositioning after an extensive re-imagination while accomplishing a repeat clientele of 25%.

With a proclivity for anywhere with snow, mountains and open areas to breathe fresh air, Bradway truly feels at home in Tahoe and comes equipped with the expertise needed to move Edgewood Tahoe into a new chapter of luxury driven hospitality. Nestled along the pristine sandy shores of North America's largest alpine lake, and toeing the state line of Nevada and California, Edgewood Tahoe is a world-class destination ideal for a getaway immersed in the Sierras with the luxe touches of resort-style living. Steps from choice skiing such as Heavenly Mountain, the property also offers easy access to premier shopping and both winter and summer activities including snowmobiling, snowshoeing, sleigh rides and sledding to hiking, biking, kayaking, boating, fishing, swimming, and golf.

Guest Service: A Culture of YES

In a recent global consumers report, 97% of the participants said that customer service is a major factor in their loyalty to a brand, and 76% said they view customer service as the true test of how much a company values them. And since there is no industry more reliant on customer satisfaction than the hotel industry, managers must be unrelenting in their determination to hire, train and empower the very best people, and to create a culture of exceptional customer service within their organization. Of course, this begins with hiring the right people. There are people who are naturally service-oriented; people who are warm, empathetic, enthusiastic, pleasant, thoughtful and optimistic; people who take pride in their ability to solve problems for the hotel guests they are serving. Then, those same employees must be empowered to solve problems using their own judgment, without having to track down a manager to do it. This is how seamless problem solving and conflict resolution are achieved in guest service. This willingness to empower employees is part of creating a Culture of Yes within an organization.  The goal is to create an environment in which everyone is striving to say “Yes”, rather than figuring out ways to say, “No”. It is essential that this attitude be instilled in all frontline, customer-facing, employees. Finally, in order to ensure that the hotel can generate a consistent level of performance across a wide variety of situations, management must also put in place well-defined systems and standards, and then educate their employees about them. Every employee must be aware of and responsible for every standard that applies in their department. The April issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some leading hotels are doing to cultivate and manage guest satisfaction in their operations.
