Drew has a long history in the hospitality industry. He started his hotel career in Orlando, FL in 1990 where he worked for a large resort property in Disney’s Lake Buena Vista resort area. He then moved to Atlanta after accepting a position at Holiday Inn’s corporate flagship hotel, the Crowne Plaza Ravinia, as the Assistant Guest Relations Manger. After many years in the hotel business, Drew began his own retail business, which he operated for almost three years before coming back to hospitality.

After the sale of iHotelier to TravelClick, Drew became the Director of Operations for the iHotelier division. He eventually moved on to Whiteboard Labs where he focused on sales for custom web design and their proprietary WindsurferCRS. As Vice President of Sales & Marketing for SHR, Drew is focused on the cultivation of new business and leads his team in innovative sales and marketing strategies. He holds a B.A. in Economics from Florida State University.
