When you’ve spent more than a quarter of a century with the same company, you get to know it inside out. Vann Herring’s career with McKibbon began as Director of Operations. He’s had a front-row seat as the organization has evolved and flourished. From where he’s sitting today, as CEO, things have never looked better. Vann has one of the best teams in the business, and one of the fastest-growing hospitality forces in the country. He uses his intimate knowledge of the company and the overall industry to oversee all aspects of day-to-day business operations. Every decision he makes stems from one place: his commitment and dedication to his corporate family – the people he works beside every single day. Throughout his career, he’s mentored countless individuals and watched them grow from “green” employees to respected industry leaders. To this day, it’s his proudest accomplishment. Vann is a council member for both TownePlace Suites by Marriott and Homewood Suites by Hilton Franchise. The University of Alabama graduate loves traveling abroad with his wife, Marita, catching one of his grandkids’ many activities and of course, following the Crimson Tide.
