CHLA Spring 2014

Each year, Carl and Bodkin, his golden retriever, lead the San Diego Christmas Parade. CH&LA: What have been the highlights of your career thus far? DOUGHTY: There are the properties we have built or purchased, making our clients successful in their hotels, and also my time with colleagues on the CH&LA Board of Directors, which I was fortunate to sit on. These are all good highlights, yet the everyday highlights come from all the people I get to work with. I am lucky to have Tracy Wahrlich as my 30+ year business partner. We have collaborated on and created a story of business success that spans decades. The managers and staff at the office for all the properties are all so important to our company, and that fact is never taken for granted. The clients we work for have become more than just business associates, many have become part of our extended family and I have learned so much from all their experiences. Yes, the biggest highlight is not the material or professional accomplishments, it is the delight I get from just showing up and being with people I admire and who appreciate me, too.  SPRinG 2014 California Hotel & Lodging Association 19
