"Brad has used his extraordinary leadership skills to attract top talent to our team and grow the company," said Fred Cerrone, Chairman and CEO. "He has been instrumental in securing new business through key development deals and driving results to both the top and bottom line of our hotel assets."
Mr. Rahinsky joined Hotel Equities more than two years ago with a comprehensive 20-plus year background in hospitality operations, sales and marketing and business development.
