“We are thrilled to bring on such a highly skilled and seasoned professional to lead our group sales efforts,” said Skamania Lodge General Manager Scott Spann. “Todd is coming on at an exciting time for the Lodge and our guests; significant remodeling is currently underway to be completed in late spring, which will make the Lodge even more desirable for those attending meetings and for those seeking an escape from their otherwise hectic lives.”

Prior to joining the Lodge on March 28, 2012, he led the group sales efforts at several prestigious properties in West Virginia including Waterfront Place Hotel, The Greenbrier, Stonewall Resort and Glade Springs Resort. Additionally, he worked at Rocky Gap Lodge and Golf Resort in Cumberland, Md., Nemacolin Woodlands Resort and Spa in Farmington, Pa., and Bedford Springs Resort in Bedford, Pa. While working at these hotels and resorts, Gillespie was able to exceed sales goals, increase revenues and successfully launch new services and amenities for the properties. He is a graduate of Fairmont State University in Fairmont, W.Va.
In his new position at the Lodge, Gillespie oversees all group sales and marketing efforts including a 14-member sales staff.
