Meet our hotel leadership team. If there is anything we can do to make your stay more enjoyable, let us know. We hope to exceed your expectations with the goal of earning your loyalty as a customer.

David Helgeson, CMP

General Manager

David directs a team of dedicated professionals who strive to exceed guests’ expectations with the goal of earning customer loyalty. With many years of experience servicing guests from a “front” and “back-of-the-house” perspective, David works closely with all hotel departments to ensure the client’s expectations are met and exceeded. David and everyone at the Oshkosh Waterfront Hotel know that it is much easier to keep guests coming back than it is to find new ones.

“Our guests will be amazed at the level of service and commitment we provide. We are constantly looking to exceed your expectations. I am thrilled to be a part of such a beautiful and unique venue. We look forward to the opportunity to be a part of your stay!”

Under Christy’s leadership and guidance, the sales and catering team is focused on meeting the guest’s every need and fulfilling the client’s mission of a flawless event.
