Denise Ware brings more than 25 years of hospitality experience to The Carver Companies. As a college student, she worked part-time at a hotel front desk when she was approached about a sales position. She developed her skills and knowledge of sales and served in several hospitality positions – catering sales manager, sales manager (rooms), assistant director of sales, director of sales and marketing, and area director of sales and marketing. Her work has been across multiple families of brands including Hilton, Marriott Hotels and Resorts, Starwood Hotels and Resorts, and Choice Hotels.
Denise began her second career in 2012, teaching at Prince George’s Community College. She is committed to giving back to students and the community because she knows the true meaning of hospitality and that the greatest gift you can give is to serve others. She often says, “I have worked in my gift for over 25 years and now I am working in my purpose.”
In 2013, she started Wynn Consulting Services to serve the hospitality community with training in Brand Marketing, Customer Service, Hotel and Restaurant Mystery Shopping, ServSafe, Hospitality, TIP’s, as well as various customized certification programs.
After recently earning her MBA degree from the University of Maryland, Denise has plans to further her education by pursuing a Ph.D. in International Relations.
Denise serves on the Maryland Hotel and Lodging Association and Maryland Tourism Coalition Boards, and is an active member in her church and community.
In Denise’s spare time, she loves spending time with her fiancé and her human pup named Biggie. She enjoys riding motorcycles and volunteering to give back to her community.
