Leanne Shaw, Chair

Current position: Owner/General Manager of Country Inn & Suites by Radisson Calgary-Airport since 1999

AHLA Board Member since: 2012

Started working in hospitality industry: 1987 (restaurant); hotel industry (family business) in 1999 as a GM/Owner Operator

Other boards Leanne has served on:

  • Calgary Hotel Association (2006-2012)
  • Country Inn & Suites By Carlson Operator Advisory Forum (2007-2012)
  • Alberta Strategic Tourism Council (2014-16)

Why Leanne wanted to join the AHLA Board:

I have great respect for the AHLA and the advocacy and programs and services that it provides to our members. I believe that I can bring the perspective of an owner/operator who, although part of an international hotel chain, understands what it is to be an independent operator who relies on the strength of the AHLA to provide the programs and initiatives that both promote and protect the prosperity of our industry.
