Davidson reorganizes as Davidson Hospitality Group

Just a few weeks after launching its latest division, hospitality management company Davidson Hotels & Resorts has updated its company architecture and rebranded as Davidson Hospitality Group. 

“This represents yet another exciting chapter in our 47-year journey,” said John Belden, chairman and CEO, Davidson Hospitality Group. “We’ve been thoughtfully and strategically building toward this model over the past five years and felt we could provide property owners a way to leverage the scale and sophistication of the larger organization, while providing intensive, specialized skillsets within each operating division. In doing so, we can continue to provide best-in-class management solutions, capable of delivering tremendous value for owners and partners while bolstering our position as the best place to work in hospitality.”
