Greg Lindner

Regional Vice President of Operations

Why McKibbon? Because of the great brands, growth, and the unbelievable loyalty of the people who make it feel like home.

Greg’s career in hospitality may have begun in Atlanta, but it’s led him all over the world. Germany. Hawaii. Florida. His first taste of the industry was as a Housekeeping ID Management trainee. Since then he has served as Housekeeping Manager, Director of Operations, and General Manager for various brands, including Hilton and Marriott. His diverse background makes him the perfect candidate to take on the role of Regional Vice President of Operations for McKibbon.

Despite a well-traveled career, Greg feels most grounded at home. And “home” is wherever his where his family is, which includes his wife of over 26 years, three children, a chocolate Lab and his McKibbon family. He speaks fluent German, loves the beach and experimenting in the kitchen. The New York native stays close to his roots, cheering on the Buffalo Bills year after year in spite of the constant heartache. While he wishes he had more time for leisure travel, he loves the fact that his job empowers him to interact with so many different guests and colleagues alike, and that no two days are the same – making every day a true adventure.
