USA, Germantown, Tennessee. March 26, 2018

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.”

Rob Stiles, Principal and Managing Director of Robert Douglas, added “Chris's deep experience on all sides of the hotel investment space will serve the McNeill Hotel Company platform well.”

Architecture & Design: Wellness is Key


Like every other facet of hotel operations, architecture and design firms are adapting their work to ensure the safety and well-being of both guests and staff. New ways to bring Wellness into hotel spaces are being explored and these solutions are taking on many forms. Hotel designs are incorporating more open floor plans, open air spaces, high ceilings, outdoor areas and operable walls into their spaces. Guests no longer want to be packed into tight areas. More "biophilic" elements are also being incorporated, offering guests the sense of being outdoors. Another trend is the reimagining of guest rooms to support remote work capabilities. Some hotels are converting empty guest rooms into office spaces, complete with effective lighting and suitable backgrounds for video conferencing. Dedicated Zoom Rooms are also becoming increasingly popular. The main goal is to provide guests with a positive experience in a space that feels safe and comfortable. These are some of the architecture and design subjects that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
