Hotel Equities Promotes Joe Reardon to Chief Development Officer

USA, Atlanta, Georgia. November 08, 2018

Atlanta-based Hotel Equities (HE) announced the promotion of Joe Reardon to Chief Development Officer. In his new role, Reardon will oversee all aspects of development for the hotel ownership, management and development firm. Reardon brings 25 years of industry experience and an unwavering commitment to the company's core values to his new position.

In his previous role, Reardon served as SVP of Business Development & Marketing where he orchestrated the firm's impressive expansion. 

"Joe has been a tremendous asset to the organization,” said Brad Rahinsky, President & CEO of Hotel Equities. “Since joining the team five years ago, we've experienced unprecedented growth. Joe's ability to identify opportunities and see them through, where others may not have had the vision or wherewithal, is unsurpassed. His energy and passion is only matched by his commitment to his team and our partners."

Since Reardon joined the firm in 2012, Hotel Equities' once predominately regional portfolio of hotels has grown into an international presence with over 100 hotels throughout the U.S and Canada. Reardon's ability to facilitate companywide profitability, growth and expansion is remarkable. However, it's his deep-rooted commitment to his team, and to the firm's stakeholders, that he considers among his greatest accomplishments. A relationship guy is how Reardon's team in business development and marketing describe him, sharing that his excitement and passion for the ever-evolving industry is contagious. “That's the energy level we want to promote throughout our company,” Rahinsky interjected.

“I'm grateful for the opportunity to help steer this company as we continue to grow and evolve,” said Reardon. “Working alongside Fred [Founder & Chairman for HE] and Brad for the past five years has been profoundly impactful in my career and I'm excited to help carry their vision into the future.”

With Joe's continued leadership and a team of seasoned professionals under his guidance, Hotel Equities is slated to continue and accelerate their strategic growth for all of their key stakeholders.

Hotel Law: New Administration - New Policies

In a business as large as a hotel and in a field as broad as the law, there are innumerable legal issues which affect every area of a hotel's operation. For a hotel, the primary legal focus includes their restaurant, bar, meeting, convention and spa areas of their business, as well as employee relations. Hotels are also expected to protect their guests from criminal harm and to ensure the confidentiality of their personal identity information. These are a few of the daily legal matters hotels are concerned with, but on a national scale, there are also a number of pressing issues that the industry at large must address. For example, with a new presidential administration, there could be new policies on minimum wage and overtime rules, and a revised standard for determining joint employer status. There could also be legal issues surrounding new immigration policies like the H-2B guest-worker program (used by some hotels and resorts for seasonal staffing), as well as the uncertain legal status of some employees who fall under the DACA program. There are also major legal implications surrounding the online gaming industry. With the growing popularity of internet gambling and daily fantasy sports betting, more traditional resort casinos are also seeking the legal right to offer online gambling. Finally, the legal status of home-sharing companies like Airbnb continues to make news. Local jurisdictions are still trying to determine how to regulate the short-term apartment rental market, and the outcome will have consequences for the hotel industry. 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.
