Atlanta-based Hotel Equities promoted Joe Reardon to chief development officer. In his new role, Reardon will oversee all aspects of development for the hotel ownership, management and development company. Reardon brings 25 years of industry experience and an commitment to the company’s core values to his new position.
In his previous role, Reardon served as SVP of business development and marketing, where he orchestrated the company’s expansion.
"Joe has been a tremendous asset to the organization,” Brad Rahinsky, president and CEO of Hotel Equities, said in a statement. “Since joining the team five years ago, we've experienced unprecedented growth. Joe's ability to identify opportunities and see them through, where others may not have had the vision or wherewithal, is unsurpassed. His energy and passion is only matched by his commitment to his team and our partners."
Since Reardon joined the firm, Hotel Equities’ once predominately regional portfolio of hotels has grown into an international presence with more than 100 hotels throughout the U.S and Canada.
“I’m grateful for the opportunity to help steer this company as we continue to grow and evolve,” Reardon said in a statement. “Working alongside Fred [Cerrone, founder and chairman of HE] and Brad for the past five years has been profoundly impactful in my career and I’m excited to help carry their vision into the future.”
