SALISBURY, MD—Marshall Hotels & Resorts has named industry veterans David Price and Matt Jones regional vice presidents of operations.
Price will oversee the company’s expanding New York and New Jersey portfolio, while Jones will be responsible for specific ownership groups within the Marshall portfolio.
“As we continue to take on more hotels along the Eastern seaboard, it becomes necessary to find the leading hotel managers in those markets,” stated Mike Marshall, president and CEO. “Both David and Matt are well-respected operators with more than 50 years combined experience between them. We have every confidence that these two will help Marshall Hotels & Resorts as it grows to the next level, both improving existing bottom lines for our current owners and ones ‘yet to be signed.’”
With more than 23 years of hospitality experience, Price has a track record of turning around under-performing properties and driving continuous growth in established hotels, according to the company. Prior to joining Marshall, he held a number of increasingly important hospitality management positions, including regional director of operations for Hospitality Ventures Management Group and district general manager for Prime Hospitality, AmeriSuites and Wellesley Inns.
Prior to joining Marshall, 30-year hospitality veteran Jones most recently worked with Choice Hotels International as a director of franchise management. In that role, he worked with licensees to improve their products and performances in the various brands of Choice Hotels. Prior to his role with Choice, he was general manager of numerous hotels for Harrison Group Resort Hotels.

When you hear all the lodging industry projections for the months and years to come, much of the robust growth is forecast to be the result of the expected influx of travelers from China. In what could only be seen as good news for the industry, that expectation moved a little closer to reality when President Obama signed a visa waiver extension for Chinese travelers earlier this month.
