"There is no doubt that Brandon will excel in his new role, as he's overseeing two of the most iconic resorts in the area, and has already brought a number of exciting ideas to the table to breath fresh life into both properties' marketing initiatives," says Dave Sekeres of Delavan Lake Lawn Management. "With his operational and senior leadership experience, we look forward to seeing Brandon help us into the next evolution of our company."
