Westin Los Angeles Airport GM DOS

Westin Los Angeles Airport Announces New GM and DOS

The Westin Los Angeles Airport is welcoming guests back with two major hires.

With the property being minutes away from the hotly anticipated SoFi Stadium, Mark Goldrup, who has had an impressive career in hospitality, will be providing his expertise on guest experiences and hotel operations as the new General Manager.

Having been with Marriott International for over 18 year, Mark Goldrup brings a wealth of hospitality experience with him to Westin Los Angeles Airport in his new role as General Manager. After earning a Bachelor of Commerce in Hospitality and Tourism Management from Ryerson University in his hometown of Toronto, Goldrup began his career at Canadian Pacific Hotels and Resorts before joining Marriott at the Delta Chelsea in Toronto. Up until taking up his most recent post in Los Angeles, he has spent time working in a variety of roles across Canada and abroad in the United Kingdom. Most recently, Goldrup was recruited to manage the team at the flagship Toronto Marriott Eaton Centre Hotel. In 2018, he was the recipient of the prestigious Stephen G. Marriott Award for Distinguished Leadership as he played an integral role not only in the start of the first Marriott Business Council in Canada, but its expansion to seven. Goldrup is an active member of every community he is a part of and has served on boards of various Tourism Associations and Chamber of Commerces throughout his career. In this new role, he will oversee hotel operations and the guest experience, as well as actively engage and inspire his team. Goldrup strives to be creative in all aspects of life, from unique boardroom strategies and crazy adventures to welcoming guests from around the globe. Inside the office and out, Goldrup chases happiness everyday and often does so with his one true love and wife, Christine. 

While Melanie Stroh, the new Director of Sales, has worked with the Westin brand throughout her career in Canada will bring her leadership skills to her role at the Los Angeles Airport property.
