Andrew Drufke Named General Manager at Candlewood Suites Indianapolis-South

PRESS RELEASE – Commonwealth Hotels is pleased to announce the promotion of Andrew Drufke to the position of general manager at Candlewood Suites Indianapolis-South. Drufke joined Commonwealth Hotels in August 2012 as a front office manager at Hyatt Place Chicago/Naperville/Warrenville.

In his role as general manager, Drufke will oversee hotel operations, sales, and community and guest relations – focusing his efforts on driving revenue, controlling costs and ensuring guest and associate satisfaction.

“Prior to being promoted, Andrew acted as general manager at his previous property while the general manager was on leave,” Area Director of Operations Monica Pitt said. “The transition was seamless due to his dedication, hard work and willingness to do whatever it takes. After that experience, he was certainly ready to take on his own hotel.”
