BOSTON—CHMWarnick (CHMW) has appointed Maxine Taylor as SVP of asset management. Taylor will oversee operations from the company’s new San Francisco office, which is CHMW’s eighth office in the U.S. Additionally, she will attempt to grow the company’s asset-management capabilities for a client portfolio of full-service convention, airport and luxury hotels.
With the company’s recent West Coast expansion, CHMW’s portfolio now includes more than 60 hotels comprising approximately 25,000 rooms totaling $15 billion in assets.
Most recently, Taylor served as Hospitality Asset Management Association (HAMA) international chair, and was named its VP for 2017.
Prior to rejoining CHMW, Taylor held the positions of EVP of asset management at Chartres Lodging Group and VP of asset management at Capital Hotel Management. She also worked with Horwath Landauer Hospitality Consulting, as well as with the Ritz-Carlton hotels in Florida and Georgia, and was a professor of hospitality management at Edison Community College.
“Our continued West Coast expansion, coupled with strong investor interest in the Hawaii market this year, keeps us on track for one of the most productive years in our entire history,” said Chad Crandell, managing director and CEO of CHMW. “Having previously worked with us in the past, Maxine has an intimate understanding of how we do business, and her industry leadership, long-time advocacy of hotel owner rights and local market expertise will allow her to hit the ground running.”
