Rhode Island's, Omni Providence Hotel, recently hired Burnell Goldman as general manager. His responsibilities include overseeing all departments of the hotel. Goldman is a 10-year veteran with Omni Hotel & Resorts and comes to Omni Providence Hotel from Omni Jacksonville Hotel in Florida, where he served as general manager since 2013.

 

“Burnell's extensive experience with Omni Hotels & Resorts makes him a great Omni success story,” says John Murtha, area managing director for Omni Providence Hotel. “His knowledge, passion and ability to embody our core values make him an invaluable asset to our team, and we are thrilled to welcome him to Providence.”

 

Goldman has also held a range of leadership positions for Interstate Hotels & Resorts Worldwise, working at properties in Chicago, New York, northern Virginia and Las Vegas.
