The Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel, the largest hotel in Colorado, today announced the recent appointments of industry veteran Chuck Schuringa as Hotel Manager and Adam Roberts as Director of Engineering. Mr. Schuringa is the first addition to the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel’s executive committee since the property was acquired, rebranded and renamed in Feb. 2008.
“We are delighted to welcome Chuck and Adam as we prepare to make 2012 the most successful year yet,” said Mike Ehmann, General Manager of the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel. “Chuck’s extensive repertoire of achievements, dedication to customer service and sharp business skills, along with Adam’s outstanding leadership qualities and wealth of experiences in the United States Air Force, make them invaluable assets to our dedicated and enthusiastic team as we aim to attract more meetings, conventions and events to downtown Denver.”
As Hotel Manager, Mr. Schuringa is responsible for overseeing the daily operations and guest experiences for Colorado’s largest hotel. He began his career in the hotel industry nearly 20 years ago as an overnight bellman at The Westin Denver, and quickly assumed additional roles and responsibilities as a member of a Pre-Opening Team and as Front Office Manager. In 2000, he transferred to the Westin Westminster as Service Express Manager and went on to fill several positions during his tenure including Director of Six Sigma and Rooms Manager. He returned to The Westin Denver in 2003 as the Director of Six Sigma and in 2006 was promoted to Director of Operations, a position he held until joining the Sheraton. During his tenure, The Westin received recognition for sustainability initiatives by the Colorado Hotel & Lodging Association, the City of Denver and HOST Hotels. Mr. Schuringa has a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Colorado at Boulder.
Mr. Roberts will join the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel at the end of January as the Director of Engineering, having spent the past 13 years in various positions within the U.S. Air Force. Most recently, he served as the Commander and Director of Facility Management at Buckley AFB, managing 231 people as well as the largest base-level construction in the Air Force. Other roles at Buckley AFB over the years included Director of Operations, Chief of Engineering, Chief of Design and Construction and Chief of Construction Management. Mr. Roberts also taught graduate level engineering and construction management at the Air Force Institute of Technology, and spent nearly two years as the Chief of Construction Development in Iraq for both U.S. Central Command and Multinational Security Transition Command. He has a Master of Engineering degree in Construction Management from Oregon State University and a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from Ohio Northern University.
