Tim Cramer oversees and leads properties in North Texas, Western Texas, and Grand Junction, Colorado. Tim’s hospitality career began in the late 1980’s when he combined two of his passions: travel and hospitality. Tim served in a multi-function role for 2 summers in Devonshire, England, at an establishment called The Olde Postern, a small hotel and conference center in rural Southwest England. After completing a master’s degree in History several years later, Tim postponed his return to the world of hospitality for continued travel. He lived as owner/operator of a small business in Russia for 9 years during the turbulent 1990’s of post-Soviet Russia. When he returned to hospitality in 2002, Tim spent several years in various management capacities at both boutique and franchised hotels in the Upper Midwest during which time he continued to advance and grow his career and gained recognition and rewards for his consistent success.
Tim joined Extended Stay America in 2015 as a District Manager where he continued to enjoy great success when he oversaw a “stretch” district that stretched from Western Georgia down to central Florida. Through his leadership and direction, Tim transformed this from a struggling group of hotels to a top performing district in less than a year. Consistently strong results we sustained throughout the course of his involvement. Tim’s success is founded on his drive for consistent, positive results. Tim also served as a District Manager Trainer with ESA training 4 District Managers during his tenure in Alabama, Georgia and Florida. Due to Tim’s consistently strong results he was promoted in early 2019 to Regional Revenue Manager where he produced one of the top 3 portfolios in the company for the entire year. Tim’s knack for numbers helped him excel at being a revenue manager but his passion really lies in the field with operations. He attributes his success as a District Manager, along with his affinity for numbers, to cultivating good managers and Teams, providing them strong guidance, support and coaching. When Tim is not working in the field, he prefers to be relaxing on a lake fishing
