The resort owner and repeat entrepreneur sat down to discuss his life and experiences both preceding and including his career in the hospitality industry.
TRAVERSE CITY, MI / ACCESSWIRE / July 20, 2021 / It is with great enthusiasm that resort owner and repeat entrepreneur Bryan Punturo announces that he is the featured subject of a new in-depth interview. The interview, which was written by freelancer Joey Gallo on behalf of an online periodical that concentrates on matters of health and wellness, was published on June 18, 2021.
Early in the interview, Bryan is asked what he loves most about being the owner of a luxury resort, and what he loves most about the hospitality industry in general. ‘I love the fact that we can provide a good product at a fair price and make memorable life experiences for our guests,’ he replies, smiling as he delves into greater detail. ‘We incorporated a wedding venue into our facility that can host up to 50 weddings a year. These weddings are on the beach and we attend to the every need of our clients, and, most importantly, to the needs they do not know they have. In the end, everyone is always overwhelmed with the quality and personal attention we give to their special event.’
Further along in the piece, Bryan Punturo answers a question about how he maintains a solid work/life balance in the notoriously busy and volatile world of hotel management. ‘It is much easier today than it was when my entire fortune was on the line with every venture,’ he reflects. ‘When I was in the growing stage, I knew that every path had the opportunity for failure, and if I were to risk too much, I may not be able to recover. In those days, I was wound very tight. It was not easy for me to maintain relationships because my business always came first. Today, I have the perfect blend of business and personal relationships which allows both to co-exist in harmony.’

About Bryan Punturo:
Bryan Punturo grew up in a modest community where hard work and family were emphasized heavily. After attending both Penn State University and the University of Alabama, Bryan entered the professional world with both a bachelor’s degree in biology and a bachelor’s degree in engineering. These credentials opened the doors to an engineering position with Shell Oil Company which took Bryan from Alabama to Michigan. During his tenure with Shell, Bryan realized that he had larger ambitions and decided to pursue entrepreneurship instead of working for a large corporation.
Some of his initial endeavors included owning and operating various retail establishments, a fitness center, and multiple tanning salons, which evolved into a regional franchised industry leader in the Midwest. Bryan Punturo also spent a few short years as a commercial pilot. Beyond that, as a licensed general contractor, Bryan built both residential and commercial structures.
In 2000, Bryan purchased a swathe of waterfront land that would later be the site for an 80-room hotel with a full bar and restaurant. To this day, Bryan is the onsite owner/operator of the ParkShore Resort in Traverse City, Michigan, which is a four-star facility located on the Grand Traverse Bay. The waterway is an extension of Lake Michigan and is a four-season playground for much of the downstate community. With 21 years on the property under his belt and a very seasoned support staff, Bryan Punturo spends the spring, summer, and autumn months managing the hotel and spends the winters in Florida. He also allots a significant portion of his free time to mentoring young entrepreneurs.
