Our Culture

If an organization's cornerstone is the culture, then the mission and vision statements are the foundation upon which the cornerstone rests. Many companies either do not have these critical parts of their culture or they are not well thought out. Our background at Foundations Hospitality has taught us one thing and that is culture is critical. A large portion of our co-founder's background comes from working with brands like Hampton Hotels. The Hampton brand, along with other greats like Starbucks and Harley-Davidson to name a few, are considered "lighthouse" brands. They are brands that signify quality and service to their customers. The Hampton brand has been able to establish themselves as a lighthouse brand and maintain that status for nearly 30-years. They have done this through their unique ability to instill their culture of “Hamptonality” in everyone of their nearly 2,000-locations around the globe. How do they do it? Their mission and vision is clear. They communicate it on an ongoing basis. Their culture is not just words on paper… it is WHO THEY ARE. At Foundations Hospitality, our goal is to always be considered a lighthouse brand among hotel management companies. With that in mind, our culture is who we are. Below, you will find our mission statement. A statement about what we do every day with our owners, our guests, and our team members. You will also find our vision statement below. It is our long-term vision for our company. We now invite you to explore the culture that is Foundations Hospitality. THE FOUNDATIONS HOSPITALITY MISSION: We proactively enable hoteliers to provide exceptional guest experiences through elevating the level of team member and guest engagement. THE FOUNDATIONS HOSPITALITY VISION: We will universally elevate the art of hospitality by empowering today’s hoteliers and engaging the future leaders of our industry.

Kathleen Williams >> President

Kathleen Williams brings to the table nearly 25-years of hospitality experience. She started her career in hospitality as a front desk clerk. Her leaders quickly saw what an amazing talent she had and up the ladder she started to climb. In her early career, Kathleen held various positions including Night Manager, Executive Housekeeper, and General Manager. In 1994, Kathleen began her 17-year career with LQ Management. Her first role with LQ Management was as the General Manager for a 224-room La Quinta Inn & Suites in Las Vegas. There she increased revenues by 23% while increasing profits by 48%. During her spare time she also collected over $300,000 in past due receivables for the hotel. Clearly seeing that they had a natural born leader, LQ leadership promoted Kathleen to a Regional Manager in the Dallas market. From there she quickly rose to the role of Regional Vice President of the Pacific Northwest where she was responsible for the operations of 10-hotels. During her time as the leader of this region, it was the #1 region in the company. Once she had conquered the Pacific Northwest, LQ again turned to Kathleen to turn around another troubled region. She was sent to Chicago to turn around a portfolio of 21-hotels. The region was underperforming in top line revenue and profit percentages. She was able to increase revenue to hit budget through development of her existing management team. As a direct result of her efforts, the region went from one of the worst performing regions to the #3 region in less than a year. Once Chicago was turned around, you can guess what happened next. LQ again asked Kathleen to help out with another troubled and larger territory. Kathleen took over the Carolina region of the company and was responsible for overseeing 25-hotels. During her tenure as the Regional Vice President of the Carolina Region, it consistently performed in the top three for quality, lowest turnover, expense management and STR performance. Since leaving LQ Management in 2011, Kathleen has been focused on operating her two childcare centers in the Augusta, Georgia area along with launching an online training company for the childcare industry. Her childcare centers, Cornerstone Academy, have received awards for quality in childcare from the "Bright from the Start" program.

Michelle Wood >> Chief Sales and Marketing Officer

Michelle is a dynamic, innovative Sales and Marketing leader with proven ability to grow average daily rate and occupancy, thus increasing revenue per available room. She has achieved this by shifting the market mix through building and maintaining a loyal base of consistent backyard corporate business, negotiating and securing preferred status with national corporate accounts, and growing higher rated group and convention bookings. Most importantly, Michelle has inspired solid team participation throughout all departments to assist with the overall property sales strategy. Michelle began her career in sales as a multi property Sales Manager for Homestead Studio Suites where she delivered results not seen before at her hotels. After a few years of land-sales, she shifted her focus to sales for the SunCruz Casio cruise ship in Port Canaveral. Michelle was responsible for all Central Florida area sales for the cruise line. She partnered with local hoteliers to build value-added packages for hotel guests, which set the standard for referral programs in the area. After leaving SunCruz in 2004, Michelle turned her attention to the brand she loves most, Hilton Worldwide. She assumed the position of the Hilton Garden Inn at SeaWorld, the brand’s 100th hotel. As the Senior Sales Manager (without a Director in place) Michelle went to work to deliver amazing results. The hotel exceeded it’s sales goal by 140% during Michelle’s first year as a result of her booking over $2.4MM in group bookings and an additional $500K in BTS. During her tenure at the hotel, it saw each and every one of its business goals not only met, but also exceeded. Double-digit growth is the name of Michelle’s game. The hotel saw double-digit growth in RevPAR index year over year and against the comp set. In 2010, Michelle took on her next challenge as the Director of Sales for the Hilton Garden Inn Orlando International Drive North. There, Michelle went to work turning the hotel’s sales operations around and delivering a 30% year over year revenue growth, mostly as a direct result of group bookings and targeting underperforming market segments. Michelle went on to take on even more challenges as the Area Director of Sales for the HGI & Homewood Suites Orlando/Lake Buena Vista where she achieved a combined RevPAR index of 134% in 2011 and a 168.5% RevPAR index in 2012. Hotels under Michelle’s leadership have always ranked in the top 10 within their perspective regions for RevPAR index as well as YOY RevPAR index growth.

Steve was one of the first team members brought on board to develop the concept and open the first two resorts. After a successful launch of the two resorts, he was looking for a new challenge. That is when he met Kevin Boudreaux, our CEO. Kevin brought Steve on board as an Operations Manager for Synergy Hospitality. Steve proved himself as a talented business development professional and he was quickly promoted to Vice President of Operations & Business Development. In 2009, Steve assumed the role of Director of Business Development for Advantage Services Professional Property Management where he was tasked with growing the company’s business by refocusing and rebranding the company. Steve set out to create a new identity for the organization and began to secure new contracts.
