Avery Aoki Appointed Chief Financial Officer at Outrigger Hospitality Group

USA, Oahu, Hawaii. October 12, 2021

Outrigger Hospitality Group has announced the promotion of Avery Aoki from Vice President of Finance to Chief Financial Officer (CFO). He succeeds David Nadeau, who will help to ensure a smooth transition for Outrigger's financial team before retiring at the end of this year.

As CFO, Aoki will serve as a key member of Outrigger's executive team. He will assist Outrigger, furthering the company as a best-in-class revenue operator and partner. He will help Outrigger in its mission to be The Premier Beach Resort Brand in the World through fiscal support of new acquisitions and property elevations.

"Avery is a well-respected, proven leader with an acute understanding of the hospitality industry's macro-environment alongside Outrigger's specific business needs," said Jeff Wagoner, President and CEO of Outrigger Hospitality Group.

"He has been instrumental in our efforts to weather the current financial situation and to position Outrigger favourably for future development opportunities. I am immensely grateful to have his wisdom and insights as our new CFO."

For more than three decades, Aoki has had a notable career with Outrigger - joining the company in 1986 as controller. In 1990, he was promoted to Director of Finance, followed by Vice President of Finance and Accounting in 1996.

Aoki was pivotal in helping to navigate global accounting and financial operations as the Outrigger portfolio grew worldwide, including working in the company's Phuket office for nearly five years. He continues to provide invaluable leadership in creating and implementing greater efficiency across the company's operations in Hawaii and Asia Pacific as well as financial reporting, audits, transitions, contract negotiations, financial modelling and analysis.

Born and raised in Hawaii, he earned his CPA in 1985 and also holds a Bachelor of Business Administration, majoring in accounting and an Executive Masters in Business Administration, both from University of Hawaii at Mānoa.

Hotel Group Meetings: The Great Outdoors


There is some welcome good news in the Hotel Group Meetings sector. There seems to be a resurgence in activity - across all sectors and all sizes - from small board meetings to large in-person groups. However, hotels must remain flexible and proactive, as they seek to provide venues and programs that are productive, comfortable, and safe to all parties. One major development is the expansion of outdoor meeting activities. This trend not only serves to meet regulatory health standards, but it also promotes an environment of well-being. According to a recent study from WorldHealth.net, spending just 29 minutes outdoors can result in a 45% increase in productivity; and 63% of employees reportedly felt invigorated after being in fresh air. Combined with guided physical activities and healthy food and beverage offerings, a sense of wellness and productivity are established. The September Hotel Business Review will report on what some hotels are doing to accommodate the revitalization of group meeting business in their operations.
