HP Hotels Names Mark Alvarez as Its First Chief People & Culture Officer

USA, Hoover, Alabama. July 07, 2022

HP Hotels, a full-service third-party hotel management company, announced that it has named Mark Alvarez, formerly a Regional Director of Operations, to the newly established executive position of Chief People & Culture Officer (CPCO). He will report to HP Hotels' CEO Kerry Ranson, who made the announcement.

As the company's first Chief People & Culture Officer, Alvarez will be responsible for facilitating a broad range of internal and external engagement activities and programs that positively impact HP Hotels' reputation, locally and beyond; team member recruiting, retention, training and satisfaction; and leadership development.

A nine-year veteran of the U.S. Army with more than 20 years of hospitality and hotel operations experience, Alvarez first joined HP Hotels as General Manager of Comfort Suites Northlake Charlotte in 2016, where he successfully led his team to make significant improvements to revenues and profitability, drove positive RGI growth, and achieved outstanding QA performance. Steady growth within the HP Hotels organization led to serving from his hometown of Miami as a Regional Director of Operations. Prior to joining HP Hotels, Alvarez was a Regional Director of Operations for the Merco Group, Inc.

"Mark has the exciting opportunity to be promoted within the organization during a time of inflection, reflection, and growth. Building on the momentum of a new strategic plan, as well as our commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging within HP Hotels, Mark will reimagine and reshape the role of the Human Resources function and its impact on our organization and our people, our partners and, ultimately, our guests," Ranson said.

"I understand and welcome the responsibilities that come with setting the scope and tone for this new and important leadership position at HP Hotels. Our complex and exciting industry is first and foremost a people business, always has been, always will be. Respect, fairness and humility go a long way," Alvarez said.

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.
