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.

Currently the full service and resort division covers about ten percent of Hotel Equities’ 100-hotel portfolio and the firm expects the division to double in size over the next 12-16 months. 

More than 29 years ago, Buompastore began his career in hospitality at a Hyatt hotel in Cherry Hill, N.J.  Since then he has worked for a number of Hyatt hotels in positions of increasing importance and responsibility for nearly three decades.  He came to Hotel Equities from the Hyatt Regency Birmingham, formerly The Wynfrey Hotel, a 329-room historic property with 34,000 square feet of meeting space and two restaurants where he served as GM after a $14-million renovation and rebranding.  He successfully raised market share, increased service scores and grew occupancy, RevPAR and revenues to record levels over a two-year period. 

Buompastore's previous positions included executive assistant manager at the Hyatt Regency Dallas, one of Hyatt’s largest convention hotels and as the executive assistant manager at both the Hyatt Regency Crown Center in Kansas City, Mo., and the Hyatt Hotels & Resorts in Orlando, Fla.  Early in his career, he progressed through the ranks in several consecutive management positions at multiple Hyatt locations including Dallas, Texas and Cambridge, Mass.
