Most recently, McAllister served as Area Vice President of Lodging Development for Marriott.

Following a diverse, 27-year career at Marriott, McAllister searched for a firm that he felt had the values, reputation, growth potential, and standards consistent with the direction he wanted to take his career.

For me, it is important to work with a company that consistently delivers on the highest standards and results with the greatest team and the strongest culture."

While at Marriott, Mr. McAllister developed competencies in all aspects of the hotel industry; throughout his career, McAllister's responsibilities ranged from sales, marketing, and revenue management, to development and operating roles throughout Marriott's premium brand, select service, and extended-stay market segments. During his most recent 6 years as VP of Lodging Development, McAllister added over 150 new hotels into the Marriott portfolio.

McAllister will be responsible for overseeing the hotel management division of Lodging Dynamics; his duties will include the facilitation of continued growth for Lodging Dynamics through new unit growth, development and maintenance of strong owner relations, and continuing to improve top line and NOI performance. In addition to operating responsibilities, McAllister will provide additional expertise to Lodging Dynamics' development and acquisition divisions. "When the opportunity to hire Scott McAllister came our way, it was an easy decision because Scott's skillset and experience are perfectly aligned with both our growth and operating strategy, " stated Joel Sybrowsky, President and CEO of Lodging Dynamics.

Mobile Technology: Relentless Innovation

Technology has become a crucial component in attracting and retaining hotel guests, and the need to enhance a guest’s technology experience is driving a relentless pace of innovation. To meet and exceed guest expectations, 54% of hotels will spend more on technology in 2018, and mobile solutions in particular will top the list of capital investments. Many hotels are integrating mobile booking, mobile keys, mobile payments and mobile check-in into their operations. Other hotels are emphasizing the in-room experience, boosting bandwidth and upgrading flat screen TVs to more easily interface with guest mobile devices. And though not yet mainstream, there are many exciting technology developments on the near horizon. The Internet of Things (loT) is taking form in some places, and can be found in guest room control systems, voice activation systems, and in wearable sensors that can be used for access and payment options. Virtual reality headsets are available at some hotels so guests can enjoy virtual trips to exotic locations or if off-property, preview conference facilities and guest rooms. How long will it be before a hotel employs a fleet of robots for room service, or utilizes a hologram as a concierge, or installs gesture-controlled walls that feature interactive digital displays? Some hotels are already using augmented reality for translation services, or interactive wall maps, or even virtual décor. This pace of innovation is challenging property owners and brands to stay on top of the latest technology trends while still addressing current projects. The January Hotel Business Review will explore what some hotels are doing to maximize their opportunities in the mobile technology space.
