ARAMARK Harrison Lodging, Retires
|Philadelphia, Pa. – March
11, 2005 – ARAMARK Harrison Lodging recently announced the retirement of
industry veteran Jack Kealey, senior vice president. Kealey retired at
the beginning of March 2005.
“Jack has been a tireless advocate of the conference center industry and we thank him for all his contributions to ARAMARK Harrison,” said Rory Loberg, president, ARAMARK Harrison Lodging. “We wish him well on all of his future endeavors.”
Kealey had been with Harrison since the mid-1970s. During his tenure, Kealey held a variety of positions and was integrally involved in development, operations and marketing for the growing brand. Prior to his role as senior vice president at ARAMARK Harrison Lodging, Kealey was president of the Harrison Group – a subsidiary of Hilton – and senior vice president of operations of the University Hotel & Conference Center division prior to its acquisition.
Kealey’s involvement in industry-related activities is extensive. He recently served on the board of directors of The International Association of Conference Centers (IACC) and was a past chair of the organization’s professional development, membership development, marketing and advisory services committees. He was selected, along with three other IACC board members, to design and develop the curriculum for the first Professional Development Course on conference center management and operations offered by Cornell University, and he served as a course instructor during its debut. In addition, Kealey was presented the prestigious Mel Hosansky Award for Distinguished Services at IACC’s 22nd Annual Conference in 2003. Other accomplishments include:
“It’s been a rewarding career and I’ve been fortunate to spend it in the conference center field where I have made many good friends,” said Kealey. “As I turn my attention to the future, immediate plans include doting heavily on my first grandchild and preparing for my daughter’s upcoming wedding later this year.”
Kealey resides with his wife, Marilyn, in Orange, CT.
Offering a collection of the world’s most effective environments for learning, communication and personal growth, ARAMARK operates more than 50 conference centers, corporate training centers and specialty hotels in educational environments.
