The general manager of the recently-opened DoubleTree by Hilton convention hotel in Evansville has resigned. The Evansville Courier & Press reports Tracy Wiley, who came to Evansville in February 2016, is leaving the hotel for another position outside of the area.
Wiley tells the publication a confidentiality agreement prevents him from naming his new employer at this time. He was hired to be the general manager of the $61 million hotel while it was still under construction. The hotel opened in February.
"Most of the time when you open a new property, an opening GM will come and get it set up, get it ready to go, and will either stay two to three years or quickly move on," Wiley told the Courier & Press. " … This has been a wonderful opening. The hotel has done very well. Typically it does take a bit to get a hotel stabilized, but we are getting to that point. It’s caught on and been on its feet."
Wiley tells the publication he expects to leave around August 20. A successor has yet to be named.
