In his most recent role, Burnetti held the position of General Manager of New England's award-winning Topnotch Resort in Stowe, Vermont.

Burnetti returns to the Pyramid Hotel Group after a previous tenure with the group serving as General Manager at Hotel Viking in Newport, Rhode Island. In that position, he oversaw an extensive multi-million dollar renovation of the iconic 90-year old hotel. He was awarded Rhode Island Hospitality Association's "Hotelier of the Year" for leading the hotel during this transformative time in the Hotel Viking's Illustrious history.
