McNeill Hotel Company, a growing nationally-recognized hotel owner, developer, and manager, announced that it has hired respected industry executive Chris Ropko to serve as the company's Chief Financial Officer. Phillip McNeill, CEO of McNeill Hotel Company, made the announcement.

Prior to joining McNeill, Ropko served as Managing Director at RobertDouglas, a national hospitality investment banking platform, where he focused on structuring and raising debt and equity capital for lodging and specialty leisure properties, portfolios and companies throughout the Americas in excess of $2.5 billion.

Ropko's extensive career also includes time spent as a Portfolio Manager and Commercial Real Estate Specialist at PIMCO and with Goldman Sachs where he focused on acquisitions and asset management almost exclusively in the hospitality sector on behalf of the Whitehall series of private equity funds. Most notably, Ropko helped build out Whitehall's limited service hospitality acquisitions, asset, and property management platforms, including the privatization of Equity Inns.

Commenting on the addition of Ropko to the McNeill Hotel Company team, McNeill said, “Chris is an accomplished, seasoned professional and we are fortunate to be in a position where we can add someone with his credentials and industry relationships to our growing organization. He will be an integral member of the executive team in the months and years to come as we continue to develop and execute a plan of strategic growth and expansion.”

Hotel Revenue Management: Every Square Foot Matters


Traditionally, hotels have employed a room-centric revenue model. The primary focus was on pricing strategies that could generate the most revenue from the sale of rooms. However, the pandemic has forced hoteliers to look beyond room revenue exclusively, and to maximize all available revenue streams. How is this accomplished? By re-imagining the use and function of every square foot of a hotel property, and how revenue is generated from it. For example, some hotels are rethinking their spaces for different uses - offering rooms for private day meetings, or offering suites for private dinners. Other hotels with meeting spaces are moving beyond daytime conferences and events, and figuring out how to book those spaces in the evenings, on holidays and weekends, for such things as exhibitions, workshops, rehearsals and pop-ups. Still other hotels are leasing work spaces or parking spaces to businesses in their local market. The October issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on how some leading hotels are re-inventing their revenue management strategies.
