According to a news release, Perkins’ 15 years of hospitality industry experience includes stints at the Lexington Marriott City Center & Residence Inn in Kentucky, where he served as director of operations, and Charlotte Marriott City Center in North Carolina, where he was director of services. He also worked at the Hotel Adagio in San Francisco and the W Atlanta Downtown after beginning his career at Embassy Suites Philadelphia Airport.
“Jason has devoted his entire career to the domestic hotel industry,” Mainsail Lodging & Development Founder and President Joe Collier states in the news release. “We look forward to him sharing his knowledge and expertise from hotels across the country with the guests and staff of The Karol, as well as our team at Mainsail.”
Duffey, the release states, helped open the Karol Hotel in 2020 and helped the property attain TripAdvisor Travelers' Choice and AAA Four Diamond status.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Jason to the Mainsail team and have Adam take the helm at Fenway Hotel,” Collier states in the release. “Both bring extensive industry experience, passion for hospitality and intuitive leadership to these two boutique Tampa properties.”
