Corporate Director of Revenue Management
As Corporate Director of Revenue Management, Tim oversees the day-to-day revenue management for the Gibson hotels which include Marriott, Hilton & Wyndham properties. He identifies new opportunities and implements revenue management strategies to ensure that the properties are exceeding in their market. Tim’s journey in hospitality began in the winter of 2007 when he became a first time Director of Sales for a 100 room Courtyard in Paducah, KY. Tim often jokes that he used to think hotels just sold themselves by people walking in the door and through online bookings, not realizing the actual need for a salesperson. Finding his passion in the hotel industry, he continued to pursue his career through various positions. He served as Area Director of Sales for two smaller hotels in Paducah, KY before becoming the General Manager of those hotels. Tim eventually found his niche in Revenue Management and served as the Revenue Manager/Reservations Manager for a 287 room Millennium hotel in Nashville, TN. Tim accepted the position of Corporate Director of Revenue Management for Good hospitality in Valparaiso, IN early 2016 where he was responsible for 25 properties. In the fall of 2016, Tim was offered a position with Lin-gate hospitality as Corporate Director of Revenue Management allowing him to relocate back to his home in Paducah, KY. Tim served in that role until recently when he joined our Gibson in December of 2020. Tim currently oversees 14 of our hotels throughout Indiana, Kentucky, South Carolina & Tennessee. In this position Tim is responsible for the financial performance and revenue maximization of the hotels. Fun fact: Tim never attended a day of college. He started his professional career in telecom sales where he accepted many promotions in that industry before stepping out of his comfort zone and joining the hospitality industry in 2007. He will tell you “anything is possible if you want it bad enough”. Tim currently resides in Paducah, KY where he enjoys most anything outdoors, refurbishing old furniture, home makeovers and spending time with his two nieces & two nephews. Tim enjoys volunteering for local charities & non-profits when time allows.
