Since 2011, Beyer has served as GM of the Hilton Garden Inn Joplin, a position he will continue to hold in his new role. Before that, he worked as general manager for the Fairfield Inn and the former Baymont by Wyndham, both in Joplin. Going further back, he served as night auditor, guest services representative and general manager-in-training at the Super 8 by Wyndham in Joplin. Beyer attended Missouri Southern State College, where he studied accounting.
