Elaine Powell returns to Alabama ready to put her 35 years of hotel leadership into her new role as Vice President of Operations at Yedla Management Company.

Her strong hotel background in sales and operations led to mentoring and leading as both a General Manager as well as several above property regional positions. This has prepared her well for the exciting challenge of leading Yedla Hotels through another period of growth and new development. The talents and insight from her experience allow her to quickly assemble all the pieces of any hotel puzzle into a completed and profitable final picture.

Impacted by a family member’s cancer and subsequent survivor story, Elaine learned at a young age the importance of supportive networks. She promotes a strong sense of support and networking among her teams and encourages them to continue that outreach with fundraising and volunteerism in community projects dear to their hearts and homes.
