ASHLAND -- The Common Man family’s Chief People Officer Cindy Bates, PHR, CHT, was recognized for her decades of commitment to hospitality in New Hampshire with the 2021 Lifetime Achievement Award from the New Hampshire Lodging and Restaurant Association.
A resident of Belmont, and graduate of Colby Sawyer College, Bates began her career with The Common Man family as a server at Tilt’n Diner in Tilton in 1992. She was promoted to general manager of the diner in 1998, and became The Common Man’s first director of training in 2006.
During her acceptance speech, Bates noted that she didn’t intend to stay in the hospitality business, rather her server position was a part-time job meant to expose her to some adult conversation, having three small children at home.
