SALISBURY, MD—Marshall Hotels & Resorts, Inc., a hotel management and services company that operates properties nationwide, has promoted Michael E. Getzey to chief operating officer. Previously, he was president of the company’s construction and renovation division.
In his new role, Getzey will oversee all operations, sales and marketing for the company’s 50-plus hotel and resort management portfolio. He will work in tandem with the company’s accounting and development teams.

“Mike is our longest tenured associate, joining the company in 1981, less than a year after our formation,” Mike Marshall, president and CEO, said in a statement. “There isn’t a job that he hasn’t done himself and/or managed within a hotel in his 30-plus years with the company. He has been involved in the operation of more than 100 hotels in his career here and overseen more than $75 million in construction/renovation projects.”

Getzey’s background in both operations and construction provides the Marshall senior management team with a broader, more distinctive expertise in taking over and operating a hotel. He plays an integral role in the acquisition/management takeover process, providing guidance on brand selection and PIP costs. He also is active in new hotel development, ranging from site selection to construction oversight.
