Charles Helm has been involved in the lodging industry for more than 30 years and served on the Best Western International Board of Directors, where in 2007 he served as Chairman of the Board. Almost the entire Helm family is involved in the hospitality industry, and some have hotels named after them. The family presently owns three franchised properties, all meeting the highest of design standards and customer service scores.
