Our Company

Frontier Lodging Solutions originated from a recognition that corporate and workforce accommodations coordination and management required a unique approach and execution.

 

At the peak of their successful career in travel management, David Kruschell and Richard Gardner were working with over 600 corporate clients by the time they sold UNIGLOBE Travel in 2018. Through their experiences working with companies with diverse requirements, they realized many of them needed a new solution to provide accommodations for employees or crews in rural and remote locations.

 

Canadian Lodging Solutions was created first as a division of UNIGLOBE Travel in 2014. By early 2018, David and Richard had incorporated CLS as an independent company, adding new services and value to its expanding list of clients.

 

As the companyy continued its North American expansion, it became clear that it was time for a new name. Frontier Lodging Solutions was chosen to reflect the remote locations that many clients work in. The name also speaks to the company’s innovative culture that has challenged old paradigms, creating new workforce accommodation management solutions.

 

Driven by the principles of making lodging coordination “Simple, Efficient and Cost Effective,” Frontier has continued to grow, working with companies in many different industries, all with the same common requirement.

 

Because we specialize in workforce accommodation services, we do it better.
