As Regional Engineering Manager, Wes Burrell believes there are only two options in life: make progress, or make excuses. He shares LBA Hospitality’s beliefs in mutual respect and service without compromise, and he is known both professionally and personally for his integrity, tenacity and attitude of appreciation.
Wes joined LBA in 2021 as part of the 3H Group alliance, and he brings more than two decades of facilities management expertise to his new position. Most recently, Wes served as Director of Facilities for 3H Group, and his previous roles included chief engineer and various maintenance and engineering positions at both the property and company levels. In his current role, Wes will ensure that properties throughout the LBA portfolio have the proper resources, training and oversight to maintain a well-regulated infrastructure.
While engineering is his primary professional focus, Wes also holds a master’s degree in music composition and technology from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisiana, and earned his bachelor of arts at Brewton-Parker College in Mount Vernon, Georgia. More than 20 years ago, he took a temporary job in maintenance engineering and enjoyed the work so much that it launched a new trajectory for his career path. Inspired by his role models, Christian minister Bill Johnson and devoted athlete Peyton Manning, Wes is celebrated by his colleagues for his dedicated customer service, hospitality and team-building efforts.
An avid outdoorsman, Wes often can be found hiking, camping, bike riding and working on home improvement projects. He resides in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and in his free time, Wes enjoys hanging out with friends, creating and writing music.
