OAKLAND, CA—Rim Hospitality has added Lisa Kershner as the new area general manager, who will oversee the Oakland Convention Center and two Marriott properties in the Oakland area.

She most recently managed The Lodge at Sonoma Renaissance Resort & Spa, a Marriott corporate hotel. She was also the general manager of the Renaissance San Francisco Stanford Court Hotel and interim executive director of the Hotel Council of San Francisco.
"I am so excited to be a part of Rim Hospitality and the multiple Marriott properties near my hometown," stated Kershner.
