Waterford Hotel Group promoted Jhenny Pierre to GM of the 92-room Courtyard by Marriott in Warwick, R.I. As GM, Pierre will be responsible for all of the hotel’s operations, sales and administration, as well as the associates employed at the property. Courtyard Warwick is professionally managed by Waterford Hotel Group, a national hotel and convention center management firm.

Pierre joined the Waterford Hotel Group team as a guest service agent at the Residence Inn in Danbury, Conn., in the spring of 2008. Pierre's passion for hospitality and dedication to her team were quickly noticed and she was promoted first to front office manager in December of 2013, and then to operations manager in May 2015. Pierre then moved to the Courtyard by Marriott in Warwick as the operations manager, before transitioning into interim GM in late May.

“Since joining the Waterford team, Pierre has proven to be a true leader with a passion for hospitality,” Rob Winchester, president and COO of Waterford Hotel Group, said in a statement. “I know the Courtyard Warwick will continue to benefit from her direction and guidance.”
