Vesta Hospitality Promotes Mark Hemmer to President

USA, Vancouver, Washington. January 08, 2020

Vesta Hospitality has promoted Mark Hemmer to the role of company President. Rick Takach, Vesta's Chairman and CEO, made the announcement.

Hemmer joined Vesta Hospitality in 2006 and his previous positions with the company have included Vice President of Operations and, most recently, Chief Operating Officer. Prior to joining Vesta Hospitality, he served as regional director of operations for Chicago-based First Hospitality Group, where he oversaw the operation of 15 hotels.

As President, Hemmer will continue to supervise all field functions related to Vesta's hotels, which include, but are not limited to, operations, sales, and human resources. Hemmer will also explore expanded management platforms for Vesta to support the company's continued portfolio growth.

"Mark is a tireless worker, does an outstanding job and he is one of the biggest proponents of Vesta's Mission, Vision and Values. This is a big announcement for me personally, as Vesta has never had a President other than myself. I could not be more proud to announce Mark in this new position," Takach said.

"This past year a strong one for Vesta, as we have been steadily adding to our number of properties under management. This consolidation allows me to focus on Vesta's portfolio development, which we also expect to provide more advancement opportunities for all Vesta team members," Takach added.

In addition to Takach, the Vesta development team includes Chief Investment Officer Mike Cryan, Vice President of Business Development Rob Gartner and Vice President of Investor Relations Elson Strahan.

"I want to thank Rick and the entire Vesta team for their confidence in me as we work diligently to grow our management portfolio, which, as Rick noted, creates career advancement opportunities throughout our organization," Hemmer said. "Vesta will always be about providing an outstanding guest experience and representing the hospitality industry at its finest, while creating return on investment for owners, investors, employees, and communities."

Hotel Law: Legal Consequences

The pandemic provoked more than a global health crisis. It also disrupted world economies, financial markets and social systems on a massive scale. Naturally, there are legal consequences associated with this kind of severe business disruption and the issues will be litigated for years to come. In the hotel industry, there are several issues that are currently germane. One issue pertains to the legal obligations hotels have to re-hire employees who were laid off due to the pandemic. Lawsuits have been filed by former employees who claim that certain promises were made to them when they were furloughed, and they are suing hotels for breach of implied contract. Another major issue involves hotels suing their insurance companies for failing to cover their business losses due to the pandemic. Still other hotels have brought lawsuits against local governments for the strict restrictions that were placed on their businesses, chiefly restaurants and bars. These are just a few of the legal issues that will be addressed in the December issue of the Hotel Business Review.
