Adams has 20 years of experience in the hospitality industry, including food and beverage, catering, operations, convention services and general management positions for Chateau Elan Winery & Resort, Noble Investment Group and Pacific Hospitality Group, in addition to his tenure with Aimbridge.

“It is an exciting time for Skip to lead THE TENNESSEAN and Holiday Inn,” said Mike McGilligan, Aimbridge Hospitality vice president of operations. “As we continue to build on the success of THE TENNESSEAN and undergo a significant upgrade and brand transition at the Holiday Inn, Skip’s depth and breadth of experience will be invaluable as we further enhance the guest experience.”

Rockbridge Capital purchased the two hotels last January and placed them under management by Aimbridge Hospitality, the country’s largest independent hotel investment and management firm. Aimbridge provides management, asset management, development, renovation and consulting services to 800 hotels, including Marriott, Starwood, Hyatt, Hilton, Embassy, Wyndham and Hard Rock.

THE TENNESSEAN Personal Luxury Hotel is a AAA Four Diamond-rated, 82-room hotel that was named No. 1 on Southern Living’s The South’s Best Hotels 2018 list. The Holiday Inn World’s Fair Park will soon begin a more than $20 million renovation and convert to a Marriott property.

Adams resides in Knoxville with his fiancée and son.
