JACKSON, Wyo. — After 17 years at Brooks Lake Lodge & Spa, General Manager Adam Long stepped away last month at the end of the 2020 winter season. His replacement, Matthew Tousignant, was announced today.
Long started at the lodge as a front desk agent and hiking guide in 2003 after graduation from Northwood University in Michigan with a hotel, restaurant and resort management degree. Promoted to general manager in 2007, he has enjoyed a remarkably lengthy run at the all-inclusive, exclusive guest resort tucked deep in the woods of Wyoming’s Shoshone National Forest.
“I still remember my first drive up the five-mile road to the lodge and I was so in awe of what I was getting into,” he says. “Then meeting my amazing wife, Julia, at the lodge and getting married on the front lawn will always be an incredible memory. Watching our family begin and grow with the birth of our two beautiful daughters has been the best.”
Other special memories for Long include viewing the 2017 total solar eclipse with guests and staff from the lodge’s place on the path of totality, as well as managing the rebuilding of parts of the main lodge’s grand dining hall following a devasting fire last summer from which Long, with his quick thinking and actions, helped save the historic structure.
As Long says goodbye to Brooks Lake Lodge, a new general manager has stepped in. The two have been working together through the winter season to facilitate a smooth transition for both guests and staff.
With 17 years in the tourism industry, working in some of the most beautiful places around the globe, new General Manager Matthew Tousignant’s passion is for creating unforgettable experiences in the most awe-inspiring natural landscapes on earth. Coming to the lodge from his most recent position as location manager of Roosevelt Lodge, Old Faithful Snow Lodge and Old Faithful Lodge in Yellowstone National Park, Tousignant is honored to take the reins at yet another historic lodge.
Tousignant said, “It is truly an honor to take on the role of General Manager of this majestic and stately property nestled among some of the most rugged ridgelines North America has to offer. My aspiration is to bring Brooks Lake Lodge into the next century from a literal point of view while preserving and highlighting the heritage from which it comes.”
