Brian Comer- Young SKAL Co-President:
Hospitality & Tourism Management Graduate | Travel Consultant & Front Desk Agent
Hard-working and dedicated recent college graduate who wants to learn and grow in the Hospitality,Tourism, Event Planning, or Sales industry. Open to many opportunities and I look forward to learning and growing as much as possible. Team player and eager to work for the success of myself and my company.
“Through networking with SKAL, I have been given great opportunities for employment to gain experience in the industry. I was fortunate enough to experience booking hotel reservations at The Inn at Fox Hollow, a privately owned boutique hotel. I was also given the opportunity to work for Marriott where I currently still work. I enjoy making guests feel at home and making them want to come back and stay with us. Both of these positions have given me experience that I never would have received at that age had it not been for the networking through SKAL”
Brian has been an active member of Young SKAL since 2015 and has been a frequent attendee at the various SKAL meetings since 2015. Brian plans on continuing his active involvement with Young SKAL as he continues working in the industry. Brian has been working for Marriott for 2 years and also works for a tour operator.
