President of Design & Construction, Concord Hospitality EnterprisesTimothy Osiecki and Concord CEO Mark Laport were custom home builders before Concord Hospitality was founded in 1985 with a vision of developing and managing high quality hotels to become industry leaders. Mr. Osiecki led the design team responsible for the first LEED-certified Courtyard by Marriott prototype hotel, and received Marriott's first Icon Award for smartly creating new innovative ways to enhance brand design without additional cost. In 2012, he reprised his role as brand innovator by leading the design of the Gen IV SpringHill Suites prototype in Latrobe PA and received a "Design Excellence" award for his efforts. “LEED gave us another avenue to sustain our goal of being industry leaders by providing owners with a compelling ROI while providing an enhanced guest experience,” Mr. Osiecki says. Since Concord's founding, Mr. Osiecki has directed the development and construction of 10,000 hotel rooms and overseen the conversion of many existing hotels to new flags. Since committing in 2009 to develop only LEED-certified hotels, his team has opened four new LEED properties, (493 rooms) and has another seven under construction and nine more in design phase. Mr. Osiecki is a longstanding member of the Design and Construction Committees for Marriott's SpringHill Suites, Courtyard, and Fairfield Inn & Suites brands as well as Starwood's Aloft and Element brands. He is currently working with Hyatt to develop enhanced cost effective design alternatives.
