Evans is a hospitality industry veteran and most recently served as SVP of business development and strategy for Benchmark, a global hospitality management firm, where he leveraged his industry relationships to drive company growth.

"Jarrad brings 20 years of experience in leading development teams, and I know that he will bring tremendous value as we strengthen our focus on growth through third-party management. At Remington, we strive to be the best management company, not the biggest. Remington combines size with customized individual service to our owners," said COO Sloan Dean.
