Dora Hospitality – Fishers IN, appoints Gary Berquist Business Development Manager

Fishers IN (1/2018) – Dora Hospitality has named Gary Berquist, CHA, Business Development Manager for the management company based at 9904 North by Northeast Blvd Fishers IN.  

In his new role, Berquist will oversee Dora Hospitality’s accelerated growth objectives by expanding third party management contracts and property acquisitions.  

”I look forwarding to working at Dora Hospitality,” said Berquist. “I have known and worked with the Dora’s for many years when I was with IHG as an Area Manager.  Their reputation for running quality hotels always stuck with me.  When the opportunity arose to work with them to help expand their portfolio, I jumped at it.  As the new Business Development Manager, we will work together to bring long lasting and high quality assets into the company.”

With more than 40 years in the hospitality industry, Berquist most recently served as President of OM Hotel Management Company where he ran several midscale branded hotels for different owners throughout Indiana.  He was able to turn each failing property around and make them successful.

Berquist began his hospitality career in 1977 as a Houseman for Howard Johnson.  In 1981 he was promoted to General Manager.  Over the next 16 years, he opened many full service conference center hotels.  In 2007 he was hired by IHG to be an Area Manager over 36 different hotels.
