With 2020 behind us and widespread vaccine distribution on the horizon, the second half of the new year is looking up, but for Q1 (and most likely well into Q2) we’re very much still in the thick of what has undeniably been the lowest point of the pandemic. What can you be doing now to power through and set yourself up for a prosperous 2021 and beyond? Join us at Part 3 of Hotel Optimization – A Virtual Event on January 27 from 10am – 1:05pm ET for expert panels focused on getting you back to profitability.


“Pacifica is projected to break out over the next 10 years. The strength of our portfolio is accredited to the leadership of our management team and dedication of employees at each property. Our reputation will allow us the opportunity to expand across the country,” Marquis said.

“Adam joined Pacifica Hotels at a critical time coming out of the recession in 2010. He developed a successful strategy that has been fundamental in positioning us as a top hospitality company coming into 2019,” said CEO Matt Marquis. 

Formerly, Marquis held a senior consultant position at PKF Consulting. Before his tenure at PKF Consulting, Marquis served as the rooms division manager for Hyatt Hotels & Resorts after successfully completing the company's corporate management program. Marquis began his career training as a hospitality host with Walt Disney World Resorts. He holds a degree in hotel management from Utah Valley University.
