“Derek Baum’s influence on my professional performance has been dramatic. In 2003, I came to the company with no hotel industry experience. Adicionalmente, Rosen Hotels & Resorts ® nunca tinha possuído ou operado um campo de golfe. From my first day on the job, Derek embraced the role of being my mentor and carefully blended my skills with the company values to create a golf experience that we are proud of, and more importantly, an experience our guests appreciate. For his guidance, I will be forever grateful."
Dave Scott, Director of Golf at Shingle Creek Golf Club
