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 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.
