Promoted General Manager
At the Residence Inn Louisville Northeast - KY, USA

Leah Goebel White Lodging is pleased to announce the promotion of Leah Goebel to the position of General Manager of the Residence Inn Louisville NE. Goebel joined White Lodging in May 2010 and was most recently the operations manager at the 112-room Courtyard by Marriott Louisville NE. Prior to joining White Lodging, Goebel lived in Alabama where she had been working in the hospitality industry since 2007. "I fell in love with the business the very first day I started working in it," said Goebel. "Working with White Lodging the past six months has made me enjoy it even more." Goebel came to White Lodging with management experience gained from several positions she held previously, including general manager of the Holiday Inn Express in Irondale, Alabama. "When Leah joined White Lodging, she had been a GM for three years, but since we didn't have a position open, we brought her on as an operations manager," explained Montrose. "I'm very excited to see her back in the GM position and to lead the Residence Inn team to another successful year."
