Interstate Hotels & Resorts appointed Elizabeth Uber SVP of operations, select service. Uber has worked in the industry for more than two decades, including most recently as VP of asset management at BRE Hotels and Resorts.

“Liz brings a unique perspective of focus on owners’ priorities while supporting our select service operations and team members,” Peter Hoffman, Interstate Hotels & Resorts’ EVP of operations, select service, said in a statement. “Her leadership and extensive experience in the hotel and hospitality industry will support our mission to be best in class in all verticals.”

At her most recent job at BRE Hotels and Resorts, Uber oversaw asset management for select- and full-service hotels across the United States. Before that role, she spent more than 11 years at Pillar Hotels & Resorts, where she rose to SVP of revenue, sales and e-commerce. Earlier in her career, she also held regional- and property-level leadership positions with Meyer Jabara Hotels, McGrath Hotels and Bristol Hotels and Resorts.

Interstate Hotels & Resorts manages 600 properties across 15 countries, inclusive of a committed pipeline of hotels under construction or development. The company plans to merge with Aimbridge Hospitality by the end of the year.
