Gayle Zdanowicz

Regional Manager

Gayle has been in the hospitality industry for over 20 years. She began her career working for the Hilton Brand as an Administrative Assistant to the General Manager. After 16 months in her role, she was asked to join the Sales team. After two years in the conference and corporate markets, she was called upon to take the position as Director of Sales for another Hilton Brand. While she was the Director of Sales, she also had experience of opening several hotels as well as a conference center (best experience ever)! While her resume is in Sales, her General Managers gave her opportunities to get involved in the operations of the hotels, thus allowing her to grow her knowledge in the industry.

Gayle is excited to be a part of Sandpiper Hospitality, assisting her region not only to meet but exceed the Brand Benchmarks and also to exceed the expectation of Sandpiper Hospitality and our owners.
