Kevin Bidner

CEO, Hotel Communication Network
Mr. Bidner joined HCN as CEO in 2008, as a founding partner and pioneering the concept from its pilot projects in Toronto.  His industry-shaping vision and strategy is responsible for the current ‘Free to Hotel’ model that has put HCN out far ahead of its competitors and he is reassessing, re-evaluating and adjusting the company’s vision and strategy on a continual basis.

Bidner forms a tight team with Richard Carruthers, implementing the company’s vision and strategy with all available resources. He is an extremely hands-on manager who believes that what can be done, should be done by him first. Leadership by example is his core value.

In meeting the obstacles to growth that have challenged HCN since 2008, Bidner’s determination and unflagging enthusiasm have inspired and sustained his team, leading to the major success in Chicago and San Francisco that HCN now enjoys. In meeting the challenges of growth and expansion from where HCN is today, and the world-champions we intend to become, HCN has the strong leader it needs to achieve its goals.
