“It Was Really Worth It!”: Why One Hotel Manager is Looking Forward to the Expo

Yet, as the facility manager of the Crowne Plaza in Stamford, CT, Friedman is responsible for maintaining the hotel’s hundreds of thousands of square feet. That means lighting, elevators, heating and A/C, carpeting, furniture and, and, and…
