BEVERLY, MA—Capital Hotel Management has named industry veteran C. Barry Robinson SVP.
In his new role, Robinson will be responsible for providing asset management and advisory services to new and existing clients as they grow their hotel investment portfolios through improving returns on existing properties, acquisitions and new development. Robinson is based in Denver, where CHM is actively engaged on several projects, including the Hyatt Regency Denver at the Colorado Convention Center and the Westin Denver International Airport hotel currently under construction.
“As new development continues to pick up, there’s an increasing need for oversight during the planning and ramp-up phases for new hotels,” stated Ken Wilson, CEO of CHM. “Barry has extensive expertise in that arena, which is becoming much more active in this phase of the hotel cycle. Planning, construction oversight and operational ramp-up strategy are critical to the long-term financial success of a hotel. Mistakes made during this crucial period can affect a hotel for decades. Barry also has extensive major-scale resort experience, which arguably is one of the most challenging hotel segments. We are delighted to welcome him back to CHM as a well-regarded asset manager with an extensive and unique skill set.”
A 20-year hospitality industry veteran, Robinson formerly served as SVP of hotel investments with CHM, in Hawaii, before becoming EVP of hotel investments for Miller Global Properties, LLC. He has held a number of asset management positions with such companies as Prudential Realty Group and Bass Hotels & Resorts. Robinson is a founding member and former president of the Hospitality Asset Managers Association (HAMA) where he earned his Certified Hotel Asset Management (CHAM) designation.
