“Never get so close to your position that when your position goes, your ego goes with it.” -Colin Powell

Charles Hegeman Jr.

Senior Regional Sales Manager

A part-time job at a boutique hotel in Washington DC turned into a career and an unexpected passion, hospitality. Charles joined Sandpiper Hospitality in January 2021 bringing over 20 years of hotel sales and operations experience. Charles directly supports the on-property sales efforts in the Mid-Atlantic and select Northeast properties.

Prior to his current role, Charles was the Director of Sales and Marketing of the 300 room Hilton Garden Inn Washington DC. During his tenure, the hotel achieved recognition as one of the top three performing hotels in the Brand for RevPAR and profitability.

When Charles is not selling hotel rooms, he is volunteering with community organizations and coaching with the local Boys and Girls Club.
