SEATTLE, Wash., March 26, 2013
—The Dow Hotel Company, LLC (DHC), a hotel ownership, investment and management company, today announced the promotion of Teresa Sims to resident manager for the Hyatt North Houston in Greenspoint, Texas. 

A veteran of the Houston market, Sims most recently was the hotel manager for the Sheraton North Houston where she was responsible for substantial increases in guest satisfaction, profitability and employee retention and managed a $6 million post-hurricane renovation. Prior to joining Dow in 2008, she held numerous positions, at other full-service, Houston-area hotels.

“Teresa understands the Houston market and has had great success in motivating associates to meet the expectations of today’s guests,” said Larry Bundy, general manager.  “Her track record in improving guest satisfaction and reducing turnover is a testament to her focus on training and motivation.  Those skills, coupled with a keen understanding of maximizing economic returns, make her an exceptional addition to the hotel’s leadership team.” 

Located in the midst of the North Houston business district, just minutes from George Bush International Airport, the 334-room Hyatt North Houston is close to the corporate offices of Halliburton Energy, GE, Exxon and Smith International.  The hotel also is nearby such leisure destinations as the Toyota Center, home of the Houston Rockets, Redstone Golf Course, Splashtown Water Park and Houston’s Downtown Aquarium.
