Hostmark Hospitality Group Adds Properties through Distressed Asset Program
Schaumburg, IL, April 22, 2010 - Hostmark Hospitality Group, one of the
nation's largest third-party hotel management companies, increased its management portfolio in major airport markets with assignments at LaGuardia Airport in New York and at O'Hare Airport in Chicago. During the past seven months, Hostmark has added nine properties in locations as diverse as Colorado, Nebraska, Michigan, New York, and Illinois through its "SOS" distressed asset program exemplifying the company's experience in repositioning distressed properties.
"Banks and lenders turn to Hostmark again and again when they are looking for a management company that can stabilize and turn around an underperforming property," says Jerome Cataldo, President, Hostmark Hospitality Group. "Operating a distressed asset requires a proven skill set that addresses the unique situation and returns asset value," Cataldo continues. "We have been successfully doing this for more than 40 years because Hostmark's experienced, focused and aggressive management team implements proven integrated solutions to maximize asset potential."
Hostmark Hospitality Group has applied their extensive experience with distressed assets in creating a tailored program called SOS (Stabilize, Operate, Sell). "The SOS program begins with a comprehensive property assessment, stabilizing the human capital and demand variables," Cataldo says, "leading to evaluation and recommendations for the property's physical plant; hotel operations and marketing; creation of a detailed operating budget; formulation of an appropriate business plan; plus staff assessment and alignment."
