With the Fall season upon us, change is ever-present. MMI recently announced some big changes as they relate to our hotel portfolio leadership. We recently announced the retirements of John Parker and Ronnie Roe, both of whom have 30+ years of tenure each with our organization. Both gentlemen have contributed enormously to the culture, growth, and sustainability of our business. They helped make MMI what it is today.
We also recently announced the promotion of James McLeod to the General Manager position of the Cabot Lodge Millsaps. James is a great example of the growth opportunities within MMI. James has worn multiple hats during his time at MMI, including Front Desk Agent, Business Development Manager, and most recently Director of Sales. By working through these different areas of hotel management, James is well-positioned to take on this new role.
We would like to extend congratulations to all these gentlemen. We wish both John and Ronnie the very best in their retirement. They have most definitely earned the opportunity to sit back, relax, and enjoy their families! We also congratulate James on his new role, and we are excited to work with him to continue on our MMI and Cabot brand traditions.
