Chesapeake Hospitality promoted hospitality industry veteran Chris Green from SVP of operations to chief operating officer. Kim Sims, president of Chesapeake Hospitality, made the announcement.
Green, who joined Chesapeake Hospitality in 2000, has more than a quarter century of successful hospitality operations experience, including nearly a decade in the field at various Chesapeake-managed properties. Prior to joining Chesapeake, Green held a variety of operational positions with three national hospitality chains.
“Chris has been a huge asset to our team and helping Chesapeake demonstrate a proven ability to deliver industry-leading financial results across a wide range of markets and hospitality concepts,” Sims said. “With his strong food and beverage background, understanding of balancing long-term and day-to-day demands, and vast knowledge of the hospitality industry as a whole, we are confident that Green will succeed in his new, much deserved role of COO.”
In this new role, Green will provide company-wide leadership, management and vision as he helps guide Chesapeake in the implementation of its growth and development strategies. In addition to promoting a success-oriented, entrepreneurial environment, his responsibilities will include direct oversight of operations and sales and marketing within the Chesapeake hotel portfolio
Green attended Florida State College at Jacksonville with a concentration in management. He holds the Certified Hotel Administrator designation from the American Hotel and Lodging Association (AHLA) and has served as president and board member for various CVB, Tourism development, and Hotel & Motel associations in the markets in which he has worked.
