An entrepreneur at heart, Craig “Nedd” Neddersen is the co-founder and president of IDM. He is responsible for the operating results of all hotels in the management portfolio along with associate recruitment and development – a cornerstone of IDM’s success. Beyond the growing portfolio, Nedd is particularly proud of consistently delivering financial returns to IDM clients through effective hotel and food & beverage management and consulting.
Nedd brings more than 30 years of management and operational experience to IDM, encompassing nearly every position in the business: from starting as a prep cook in a Utah ski resort to serving as executive chef at a 450-room, Four Diamond hotel in St. Louis; and a general manager of a 550-room resort on the Big Island of Hawaii to developing and operating the highly successful Eagle Harbor Inn in Ephraim, Wisconsin. Nedd has developed three hotel properties and, through first-hand experience, understands the myriad details involved in the creation of a successful boutique hotel.
Nedd works from Ephraim with his family. He graduated from St. Olaf College with a degree in psychology and has a passion for skiing.
