Of Legacies and Relationships: the Passing of Ed White

I just learned that Ed White passed away today. The hospitality industry is short one more thought leader. Losing two in the same week is unthinkable. I am comforted that as the newcomers to Heaven, Bill Ed whiteMorrissey and Ed White are planning a huge event for everyone there.  Details about Ed are not yet available so I will share them as a comment to this post when they are available.

Ed was internally renowned as a consummate hospitality professional.  He instructed and mentored me and his words of wisdom helped me greatly.  I know many of us have benefited from his experience  and insights. Ed was a consultant, trainer, meeting manager, and hotelier. There’s more to be read on his LinkedIn site.

Ed will be missed. At the risk of being redundant, let me ask you for the 2nd time this week to please join me in honoring the legacies of Bill and Ed by building relationships on which to grow the future of hospitality.
