East Coast Hotels' Demand For Cost-Saving Ecological Solutions Heats Up As Utility Expenses Soar

Green Suites International expanding to meet customer needs;
New England-area office to benefit the company and industry

Upland, Calif.—(Aug. 20, 2002) West Coast hoteliers are not alone in their much-reported battles against ever-increasing water, sewer, gas and electric rates. While the supply-and-demand gap might be wider in certain West Coast markets, many East Coast markets are suffering similarly.
In recent months, East Coast hotels’ demand for ecological solutions providing significant, immediate and sustained economic benefit has hit an all-time high. Increased sales requirements for Green Suites International’s entire gamut of affordable, easy-to-implement cost-saving solutions has prompted the company to invest in opening a New England-area sales and service office.
Boston native John Boynton, Green Suites International’s Seattle-based Accounts Manager,
is buying a one-way ticket home to direct business development efforts at the firm’s New England-area sales office. The coast-to-coast flight will be one of many Boynton makes this year, as he will continue to also service existing and new Green Suites International accounts in select West Coast markets because of his strong ties to the region’s hospitality and utility companies.
“I was born, raised, and lived in the Boston area for the first 23 years of my life,” Boynton said. “Up until now, our entire team serviced accounts on the East Coast. But demand for our cost-saving ecological solutions has risen so sharply on the East Coast that we decided to open up an office in the New England area. Now we can expedite our delivery of comprehensive customized cost-saving solutions to our growing base of East Coast hotel management companies and independent properties.”
Dan Bornholdt, President and Founder of Green Suites International, said the company already has a strong presence in properties of all types and sizes throughout Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. He said the New England office, which opened this week in the Boston area, represents a customer-driven expansion that will benefit both the company and industry.
“We have been looking at opening an East Coast office for a number of years. Now is the perfect time to embark on this expansion, with demand for our solutions skyrocketing in this region,” Bornholdt said.
“John is the ideal candidate to direct our New England office because he has a strong rapport with many area hotel companies and properties and he is committed to consistently exceeding customers’ expectations,” said Ray Burger, Green Suites International VP Sales & Marketing. “A former hotelier, John knows firsthand the industry’s weighty profitability pressures and has a proven track record of providing just the right answers and cost-saving solutions for which our hotel clients are looking.”
