Hans van Wees appointed Managing Director at Westport Hospitality, LLC

Joe Carton, the Chief Operating Officer and co-founder of Westport Hospitality, has announced his retirement following ten years of devoted service to the hospitality industry. Westport Hospitality has promoted Hans van Wees, who was General Manager of Hotel Vermont, to Managing Director. Van Wees will be succeeded as General Manager of Hotel Vermont by Assistant General Manager Matt Canning.

Carton’s retirement signifies the pinnacle of an incredible career. A seasoned veteran of the hospitality industry, Carton started out in the Vermont ski industry as a resort sales representative before taking a general manager position at the Radisson Hotel Burlington, which is now the Hilton Burlington. Carton’s passion for the hospitality sector only grew as it started to take off in Burlington. In order to serve as General Manager of the Courtyard by Marriott Burlington Harbor, he joined Westport Hospitality. To facilitate the opening of Hotel Vermont in 2013, Carton was promoted to COO of Westport Hospitality.

Van Wees, who has a broad background in the hospitality industry and a great deal of leadership experience, has established branded full-service convention and resort hotels throughout Europe, the Caribbean, and the United States. After being offered the position of General Manager at the Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe, Vermont, he traveled to Vermont. In order to contribute to the creation of Hotel Vermont and share his growing passion for the state with others through a well-thought-out, beautifully designed hotel experience grounded in a sense of place, he eventually joined the Westport Hospitality team. He is thrilled to deepen his love for the hospitality industry in his new position as Managing Director, supervising Westport Hospitality’s entire portfolio, having led the Hotel Vermont brand for ten years.
