Head Franchise Negotiations Division

Windermere, Fla. — August 5, 2010 —Hospitality Solutions LLC Chairman, Founder and CEO Steven J.  Belmonte has selected Tim Pigsley to head the company's Franchise Negotiations division as Executive Vice President effective August 16.

"He is the perfect person to take the Franchise Negotiations services division to the next level, and I am very happy to be working with him once again."
Pigsley responds: “Steve and I always have had a great relationship. I have kept in touch with him since our Ramada days and it is exciting to be able to work together, genuinely helping others who have serious franchise issues.”
