I have over twenty years of hospitality experience, both in managing/owning large and mid-size hotels.
Currently I have 3 projects in various stages of development. The first project is scheduled for completion in January 2016. It is a 144 room, full service Holiday Inn at Bush Intercontinental Airport.
The second project underway is a full service, 200 room, Holiday Inn hotel. This futuristic looking designed building will consist of 14 floors. The top floor will feature a roof top pool, bar and restaurant. There will also be a tennis court on the 6th floor, as well as an entire floor devoted to banqueting, which will consist of over 13,000 square feet of available space. The hotel will be located on the corner of I-10 West and Highway 6 South in Houston. It is in the heart of the Energy Corridor, mere minutes away from the head offices of BP, ConocoPhillips, and Shell to name a few.
The third project, which is currently in the development planning phase, is a Staybridge Suites located in East Houston.
In 2011, I developed a full service Holiday Inn in East Houston. IHG has recognized this hotel as one of the best newly built Holiday Inn hotels in the country and awarded it " 2011 Newcomer Of The Year" Award. This hotel is an example of its own with new contemporary design and purpose throughout the property. Besides opening Holiday Inn Houston East, my portfolio also includes other midsize properties in the Houston area. Prior to overseeing these properties and running Holiday Inn Houston East, I redeveloped many distressed properties in Houston which later eventuated to profitable sales of the hotels.
I have held many senior finance positions with Intercontinental throughout Europe. With this experience in finance, project management and hospitality, in 2000 I decided to embark on a hotel development journey.
