General Manager, Kanuga Inn & Lodging
We are delighted to introduce you to Andrew Holmes, general manager for Kanuga’s dining and lodging operations. As Kanuga takes the sometimes painful but primarily celebratory steps toward recovery from the pandemic, we are confident that Andrew has the commitment and care required to move Kanuga forward in its mission to welcome all people to connect with each other, nature, and the Creator.
Andrew graduated with a culinary arts degree from Lee College and later attended Valencia College, earning a degree in hospitality management. He has served as corporate director of operations for First Hospitality, Interstate Hotels and Resorts, and Seminole Casino Coconut Creek; executive director of food and beverage and corporate chef for Paragon; area director of food and beverage for Kessler Collection; and president of Elevated Hospitality Co. He’s also a Certified Hotel Administrator and Level 2 Sommelier! Andrew joins Kanuga as part of the Charlestowne Hotels / Kanuga collaborative team. Kanuga contracted with Charlestowne this spring to manage food and beverage and hospitality operations.
Andrew strives to provide an environment in which he provides a purpose for his staff. “If you are devoted to the mission, then Kanuga becomes more than just a place; it becomes a place where you feel connected,” he explains. “I look forward to helping move Kanuga through and past the pandemic recovery and toward a future of excellence in service and hospitality.”
Aside from work, Andrew embraces the outdoors, and spends his free time volunteering for charitable organizations like Wounded Warrior and Habitat for Humanity.
Welcome to Kanuga, Andrew!
