Brian Anderson, Linchris Hotel Corporation

Brian Anderson

Area Director of Operations

Brian Anderson began his career in the hospitality business in a way that many hoteliers don't-he started working in radio.  He was an on-air personality for WILQ and WLYC in Williamsport, PA before making the jump to advertising sales for the station. Brian's sister told of him of an open sales manager position at the Holiday Inn in Williamsport and Brian decided to give it a go. He was there a year and a half before moving on to a Ramada Hotel in Monroeville, PA. After a year, Brian moved back to the Williamsport Radisson where he worked as Director of Sales and started his career with Linchris Hotel Corporation.   

 

Linchris thought highly of Brian's leadership and customer service skills and Brian was offered the top spot at the Holiday Inn Express in Keene, NH where he stayed for 2 years. In 2006 Linchris decided to build a new hotel in Plymouth, MA and Brian was selected to see that project through from the ground up. After two years there, Brian served as General Manager for two other Linchris Hotels in Massachusetts; Holiday Inn in Mansfield and Holiday Inn in Brookline. When Linchris was looking to acquire the 25th hotel in their portfolio, the Hilton Hotel in Scranton, PA, Brian was the top choice. The hotel underwent a $3 million renovation and was ranked #5 out of all Hilton Hotels in the Americas. In September 2013, Linchris Hotel Corporation purchased the 244 room DoubleTree by Hilton Wilmington, DE. The hotel was in need of a major renovation and assistance with their customer service scores. Brian was chosen to lead this hotel. Brian brought the hotel from the bottom tier of all DoubleTree hotels to being ranked in the top 100 in the 1st year. 

 

Brian and his family loved living in the south shore of Massachusetts, so when Linchris purchased the Radisson Plymouth and planned to re-position it to an independent hotel, Brian was the obvious choice to lead the team. Hotel 1620 was transformed into a boutique hotel after completing a $5.7 million renovation. In November 2016, Brian was promoted to Area Director of Operations. Brian currently oversees the hotels in the south shore of Massachusetts.
