Mr.  Brown has developed, built, and successfully managed a number of  branded and independent hotels.  He put together shareholder groups,  purchased independent hotels, redeveloped them, and rebranded them.   Some of these include Best Western Conestoga Inn, Best Western Plus  Brant Park Inn and Conference Centre, Best Western Highland Inn, Best  Western Inn on the Bay, and the Destination Inn.  With each of these  properties Mr. Brown planned and built extensive capital improvements  that lead to greater market share, increased revenues, and higher  profitability.  He also conceived, developed two new properties: the  Best Western Plus St. Jacobs Country Inn and the Best Western Plus  Orangeville Inn and Suites.

 The St. Jacobs property excelled in  guest service and comfort, was one of the most highly decorated Best  Western hotels and a very profitable hotel.  The Best Western Plus  Orangeville Inn and Suites is a multiple M.K. Guerten award winner, the  most prestigious award in Best Western, and the hotel is one of the  flagships of the chain.
