Carol Ruben got her start at Innisfree as an Accounts Payable Clerk in 1988, when Innisfree owned only three hotels. Over the course of her career with the company, she has enjoyed roles as Accounting Supervisor, Human Resources Administrator and Payroll Supervisor – all while serving as Executive Assistant to founder and CEO Julian MacQueen. In her latest position, she also serves on the committee for 401k, Health Insurance and Property & General Liability Insurance coverage.

After studying Business Administration at Pensacola State College, Carol worked for 9 years as Payroll Supervisor for Ashland Chemical Company before joining National American Corporation (NACO), an RV resort and timeshare company, where she gained experience in the hospitality industry, hiring new managers and setting up new parks across the United States.

Carol says she enjoys hospitality because the people you make contact with are on vacation and having a good time. Perhaps this is why she connects with our Innisfree motto of ‘creating fun, memorable experiences.’
