Campbell takes hotel group reins

John Campbell, general manager of La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club, is the new chairman of the American Hotel & Lodging Association, which is celebrating its centennial this year.

“One thing that doesn’t change in the hospitality industry is that it continues to be an industry that offers opportunity to everyone,” Campbell told Hotelnetwork World. “I am living proof that you can go from being a bouncer to doing inventory at a new hotel to working in a dream job as long as you are willing to flow with the changes. Being flexible and being adaptable is key, especially in this industry and especially in these times.”

Campbell has been general manager the La Jolla resort for 16 years and has served as president of the California Hotel & Lodging Association and California Restaurant Association San Diego.
