Concord Hospitality Enterprises, one of the nation’s top-ranked hotel developer/owner/operators, announced that Alisa Faulk of the company’s Courtyard by Marriott, Settlers Ridge was named General Manager of the Year by the Greater Pittsburgh Hotel Association (GPHA) at the organization’s annual meeting and gala.
The General Manager of the Year award recognizes individuals who have demonstrated professionalism in operating a property and taken a leadership role in the industry by actively participating in association, community or industry programs.
“Both Concord Hospitality and Marriott International place a keen focus on community involvement, values that Alisa has embraced wholeheartedly,” said Michael S. Roberts, Concord’s regional vice president of operations. “As a leader, she understands the operation of the hotel because she has been in each associate’s shoes, having worked in virtually every department during her career, from front desk to revenue management. She inspires her team to dream more, learn more and do more, which delivers great results.”
Faulk is the immediate past chair of the Board of Directors for the Pittsburgh Airport Area Chamber of Commerce and has a long resume of personal volunteer commitments, including the annual WDVE Rocks for Children’s Radiothon, Hard to Recycle and being a guest bartender at the Pittsburgh Airport Area Chamber of Commerce’s annual Mixer with Shakers event. Under Faulk’s leadership, the hotel previously won GPHA’s 2014 award for community service for Concord’s annual Share Day event on behalf of Feed the Children, participation in the national Clean the World program and nearly a dozen other community activities.
“Alisa epitomizes the kind of individual leadership that sets Concord general managers apart,” added Mark Laport, Concord’s president and CEO. “Concord has deep roots, as well as significant growth plans, in Pittsburgh, and given our history, it is particularly gratifying to see that one of our general managers has earned the highest respect and admiration of her market peers.”
The 124-room and suite Courtyard by Marriott Settlers Ridge is located at 5100 Campbells Run Rd., in Pittsburgh, Pa. The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified hotel is a TripAdvisor Circle of Excellence Winner and 2013 Marriott International Silver Circle Award Winner for Guest Satisfaction.
