Time Hotels Appoints Nathan Goodman Area Director of Sales & Marketing and Tina Mazullo General Manager of The Time Nyack

NEW YORK, NY. November 9, 2017 – Time Hotels announced the appointment of two major roles within the growing hospitality brand. Nathan Goodman was named Area Director of Sales and Marketing and Tina Mazullo inserted as General Manager of The Time Nyack. Goodman will oversee all sales and marketing operations for both the hotel chain’s locations in New York City and Nyack, while Mazzullo will manage operations for the two-year old Time Nyack property.

“Nathan and Tina have shown a true dedication to supporting the growth of both the Time New York City and Nyack properties during their tenures with the company, and we are thrilled to welcome them into their new roles at The Time,” said Kanvar Singh, Area Managing Director for Time Hotels. “With valuable experience and proven results, we anticipate immediate and lasting success with regard to area sales and Nyack's all important day-to-day operations.”

Goodman takes on this new role with Time Hotels after serving as the Associate Director of Sales at The Time New York in 2015. He was promoted shortly thereafter to Director of Sales and Marketing, and since joining the team, has helped sign more than one hundred corporate contracts and increase sales growth by fifty percent year over year.

Prior to joining The Time, Goodman formerly served as Sales Manager with The Carlton, now known as The James Nomad. He also held rank as Corporate Sales Director at Interstate Hotels (The Roosevelt), and Area Director of Corporate Sales for Westhouse and Park Central. He has extensive experience with both corporate travel management as well as with travel agencies.

Mazzullo advances to her position as The Time Nyack's General Manager from her previous role as the property's Sales Manager. A member of the Time Hotel team since January 2017, she has been dedicated to elevating levels of customer service and operations while simultaneously maximizing profit for brand's newest property just north of the city in New York's Rockland County.

Mazzullo’s hospitality experience prior to joining The Time team stretches the greater part of a decade. She began her career as a Guest Service Agent and has since served leadership roles managing hotel operations for Island Hospitality, and general management operations for Townsport International, a 500-member fitness center. Mazzullo also served as Director of Sales at Island Hospitality, where she helped drive revenue across various brands including Hilton, Starwood and Marriott.

Coming Up In The December Online Hotel Business Review

Feature Focus
Hotel Law: Issues & Events
There is not a single area of a hotel’s operation that isn’t touched by some aspect of the law. Hotels and management companies employ an army of lawyers to advise and, if necessary, litigate issues which arise in the course of conducting their business. These lawyers typically specialize in specific areas of the law – real estate, construction, development, leasing, liability, franchising, food & beverage, human resources, environmental, insurance, taxes and more. In addition, issues and events can occur within the industry that have a major impact on the whole, and can spur further legal activity. One event which is certain to cause repercussions is Marriott International’s acquisition of Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide. This newly combined company is now the largest hotel company in the world, encompassing 30 hotel brands, 5,500 hotels under management, and 1.1 million hotel rooms worldwide. In the hospitality industry, scale is particularly important – the most profitable companies are those with the most rooms in the most locations. As a result, this mega- transaction is likely to provoke an increase in Mergers & Acquisitions industry-wide. Many experts believe other larger hotel companies will now join forces with smaller operators to avoid being outpaced in the market. Companies that had not previously considered consolidation are now more likely to do so. Another legal issue facing the industry is the regulation of alternative lodging companies such as Airbnb and other firms that offer private, short-term rentals. Cities like San Francisco, Los Angeles and Santa Monica are at the forefront of efforts to legalize and control short-term rentals. However, those cities are finding it’s much easier to adopt regulations on short-term rentals than it is to actually enforce them. The December issue of Hotel Business Review will examine these and other critical issues pertaining to hotel law and how some companies are adapting to them.
