Leaders of The McLemore Club announced hospitality veteran Jerry Weaver as the director of Sales for the newly opened club located on Lookout Mountain.
Beginning his career as a sales manager based in Pittsburgh, Mr. Weaver grew the markets he served to produce over $21 million annually in just over seven years. During this time, he rose to become global account director with Starwood Hotels where he marketed over 1,600 hotels. Before coming to McLemore, Mr. Weaver spent five years in the Metro Washington, D.C. area.
Mr. Weaver notes his passion for building experiences and marketing locales that are destination-driven. At McLemore, he said, “The property and course are extremely well-executed, the clubhouse is top-notch and we have the ability to provide an experience like no other in the region.” He added that while many people will be drawn to the club to play the nationally acclaimed ‘best finishing hole in golf’, many others will come to the area to enjoy the many other amenities that now includes fine dining.
“Because The Creag restaurant is now open to the public, we have a tremendous opportunity to introduce locals to a dining experience that is as unique as the view they will enjoy,” said Mr. Weaver. “My job is to connect with our guests to be top-of-mind for weddings, corporate events and gatherings that allow people to connect while disconnecting from the challenges of the day. McLemore has the ability to do that on so many levels and I’m honored to lead the sales team.”
McLemore President and CEO Duane Horton said, “We’re excited to have Jerry join the growing McLemore family. His diverse background in the hospitality industry makes him a perfect fit for McLemore and we can’t wait to see where his leadership takes us.”
Mr. Weaver received his undergraduate and graduate degrees from California University of Pennsylvania. He and his wife are the parents of two grown daughters.
