He previously held the position of sales manager at the Hyatt Regency Chicago, where he was a member of Hyatt Hotel’s “sales team of the year.” During his time at Snake River Lodge & Spa as sales manager from 2008 to 2012, White was awarded “manager of the quarter” while exceeding 2009, 2010, and 2011 annual room night and revenue sales goals. Most recently, he was director of sales at The Wort Hotel in Jackson, Wyoming where he directed onsite group sales, catering, and marketing efforts, exceeding 2012-2015 group sales revenue goals.

“The mission of my work is to provide lifelong memories to guests, which I find extremely enjoyable and rewarding,” said White. “I have had an interest in Wyoming since my teenage years; the rural open spaces, big ski, clean air, and mountains drew me in. Working in hospitality tourism allows me the opportunity to share this special place with others.”

A graduate of Valparaiso University with a bachelor’s degree in Communications/Public Relations and Saint Xavier University with a master’s in business administration, White spends his free time as an adjunct instructor at Central Wyoming College, teaching hospitality sales and marketing.
