Songy Highroads Promotes Co-Founder Todd Nocerini to President

Nocerini Will Oversee the Development, Management and Leasing of all Projects Throughout North America

USA, Atlanta, Georgia. July 22, 2020

Songy Highroads (SHR), an Atlanta-based commercial real estate firm, announced today that it is promoting co-founder Todd W. Nocerini to President. Nocerini will continue to serve as Chief Operating Officer while taking on new responsibilities in his new role. That includes overseeing all of the development, management and leasing of Songy Highroads' company-owned and third-party properties in North America.

"Nocerini has always embodied our mission and values here at Songy Highroads," said SHR Chairman & CEO David Songy. "He has had a lasting impact on this organization, and as we continue to grow our portfolio, we are confident that Nocerini will continue to contribute to the quality and innovation that we are known for."

Nocerini joined David B. Songy and Perry M. Waughtal in 1994 from Barker-Patrinely Group, Inc., and began his career at Cushman & Wakefield in Miami. His experience and expertise in all aspects of property management, leasing, and tenant construction made him an appealing partner to both Songy and Waughtal, as they looked to acquire and develop institutional-quality real estate and expand their services to the hospitality sector. In 2010, Songy, Waughtal and Nocerini turned their ongoing joint ventures into what is now SHR.

"After joining forces with Songy and Waughtal twenty-six years ago, I knew these were the people I wanted to grow both personally and professionally with," said Nocerini. "I've been blessed in my career to have worked alongside some of the best talent in the industry and look forward to leading the amazing organization we have built together."

Today, SHR has completed more than $1.5 billion in acquisitions and developments. Under Nocerini's management, SHR recently completed one of its most notable projects, the Margaritaville Lake Resort, Lake Conroe - the first Texas-based resort in the Margaritaville portfolio. This full-scale renovation and rebranding was completed in only 12 months, coming in under budget. Prior to the Margaritaville project Nocerini oversaw a number of key SHR developments including the ground-up development of the Hyatt Place Centennial Park in Atlanta and the Hyatt House Nashville, Tenn., both of which were 50 percent joint ventures with Hyatt Hotels Corporation.

Revenue Management: Maximizing Profit

Hotel Revenue Management continues to evolve at a blistering pace. Driven by technological innovation and new distribution channels, there are some dynamic opportunities for expansion in this fast-growing field. The technology is primarily designed to help revenue managers further refine their operations and pricing models to maximize hotel profit. For example, hotels can't be all things to all people, so a key strategy is to precisely identify their target audience. By employing geo-targeting techniques and analyzing behavior such as previous bookings, on-property purchases and online shopping practices, there is an increased capability to define guest demographics. By segmenting customers in more specific ways, hotels are able to create more personalized experiences which, in turn, allow managers to optimize their room rates. It is also an effective way to fulfill the unique needs and preferences of the individual. Another methodology is to consistently monitor the competition's pricing strategies. There are software tools that analyze a competitor's current rates, and then allow a hotel to make its own pricing adjustments. It is also a useful means to conduct forecasting models. Other technologies that are being integrated into a revenue manager's toolkit include Artificial Intelligence in the form of automated algorithms, and Voice Recognition (VR) for data inquiries, rate changes, and booking behavior. Predictive and analytic software programs are also being leveraged to provide more forward-looking data, instead of the usual reliance on historical performance. These metrics allow managers to be more proactive - rather than reactive - with their revenue strategy. The October issue of the Hotel Business Review will examine these developments and report on how some leading hotels are executing their revenue management strategies.
