Barbara Pressman, CHA
Many thanks and welcome back to Director of Sales, Bruce Pressman. As we embark on our search for someone to fill the position of DOS we have been lucky to have Bruce help us with the transition. Many of you have already met Bruce who was with us from 2012 to the end of 2014, but if you haven’t had a chance to say hello, drop him a line, he would love to hear from you. He would also be glad to help you with any upcoming hotel needs.

Did You Know?
Maple Tree Inn is a Certified Green Business. One of the perks is meeting with the big wigs and receiving proclamtions. Here is GM Barbara Pressman receiving a proclamation from the county of Santa Clara. We also received one from the City of Sunnyvale! We are always looking for ways to improve our carbon footprint, and we are happy to report that our landscape water usage is in line with the guidelines set by the City of Sunnyvale and reported by Waterfluence.
Staff Introduction by Barbara Pressman GM: “It feels like I have known Raul a lot longer than the two years he has been working at the Maple Tree Inn. Since starting he has had a daughter, Mia, who is the apple of his eye. He is always cheerful and ready to step in when needed. The guests very often comment on how friendly and accommodating he is, which contributes to our success. Thanks Raul!”
