Position on the Board: Board Member
Company: Holiday Inn Express & Suites
My name is Brenda Perrin, and I’m the new General Manager of the Radisson Kingswood Hotel & Suites in Fredericton, NB, which opened March 15, 2018. With over 20 years of progressive growth and experience in the hospitality industry, I have built proactive, empowered teams with a focus on exceptional guest experiences by being a hands-on leader.
Having managed a successful Country Inn & Suites By Carlson in Dartmouth for 12 years, leading award-winning teams there and in Saint John, I returned to Fredericton to manage the Holiday Inn Express & Suites. In 2017, our team was proud to have earned multiple awards and accolades, including: 2017 Top IHG Heartbeat Award (highest Guest Satisfaction score of all IHG locations across Canada); 2017 IHG Quality Excellence Award (awarded to less than 5% of Holiday Inn Express locations in North America); 2017 IHG Loyalty Excellence Award (as the Holiday Inn Express location with the highest Guest Recognition score in all of North America). In addition, it is the #1-ranked hotel in New Brunswick on TripAdvicor.com.
I was honoured with the 2016 Leadership Award for Women & Business Network Fredericton. For 2018, I have been voted in as the President of the Fredericton Hotel Association, Vice President of the Skål International New Brunswick chapter, and am happy to continue for my second year on the board of directors for the Chamber of Commerce. I am excited to work with local businesses and tourism partners to build the profile of the city and province I am happy to call home, striving to be a strong member of the business community and effecting positive economic impact by creating memorable experiences for our visitors.
