Chief Executive Officer
“I approach everything with vision, design, creativity – and no fear.”
Running, exploring, traveling
I started with a career in banking, but the hospitality industry was always calling my name. In 1986, I followed my dream and opened a full-service asset management company. By the late 1990s, we renovated our first hotel – and it truly opened the door for me.
I love the opportunity to make the world a better place. It’s a rewarding feeling to bring people and design together to create one-of-a-kind experiences. I draw inspiration from everything I encounter – and every day is a new chance to leave a lasting impression.
At Coury Hospitality, I’m intimately involved in every aspect – from development to finance, operations to design. I’m proud of the way we bring visions to life through the details. Whether a historic renovation or new construction, we tell a unique story each time.
