New manager at Semiahmoo
always loved this place, so much so that in high school
Id skip classes to come down here on nice days and
hang out on the spit, said 1978 Richmond (B.C.) High
School graduate Tom Waithe. Last month he was appointed
general manager at Resort Semiahmoo by MTM Management after
three years managing the Woodmark Inn, another MTM facility
Waithes route from Richmond, B.C., to Semiahmoo involved summers driving tour buses in the Rockies and running resorts in Japan and Hawaii. Hes originally from Rivers, Manitoba, but became an American years ago while his father was serving with the U.S. Air Force.
We still have family in Vancouver, he said, so this location is ideal. Of course, all our kids care about is that now Daddys hotel has a pool. Waithe, 42, and his wife Sandy have two kids, Rebecca, 4, and Will, 2.
