Ducharme named general manager of Homewood Suites in Berlin

WILTON – Roedel Companies proudly welcomes Danielle Ducharme as general manager of the soon-to-be-open Homewood Suites by Hilton in Berlin, Massachusetts. This is the first extended-stay hotel in the company’s portfolio of 11 properties along the East Coast.

The Homewood Suites by Hilton is a signature feature of Riverbridge, a new mixed-use village near the Solomon Pond Mall and the New England Sports Center, and is scheduled to open in late this year.

Ducharme will oversee all aspects of the 105-room hotel, including the maximization of financial performance, guest satisfaction and staff development. She is responsible for the hiring and training of all hotel staff.

“Having the opportunity to open a property, especially one that is part of a development such as Riverbridge is something I am looking forward to,” Ducharme said.

Ducharme brings extensive experience with extended-stay hotels, having spent five years, including the past three as general manager, of the Candlewood Suites extended-stay hotel in Burlington, Massachusetts.

“Danielle’s experience was obviously something that stood out,” Glenn Hardman, president of RGH Hospitality, the hotel management subsidiary of Roedel Companies, said. “We are excited about this new venture and we wanted to make sure we had the right person in position to manage this kind of property.”

Ducharme is a native New Englander who graduated with an associate degree in Hospitality Management from Middlesex Community College and attended the University of Massachusetts Lowell.
