BERLIN (March 8, 2016): The first annual HAMA Europe Asset Management Achievement Award has been presented to London & Regional for their work on the InterContinental Hotel, Dublin this morning at the International Hotel Investment Forum (IHIF). The award was collected by Henri Wilmes, VP Acquisitions Hotels on behalf of London & Regional.
The award is co-sponsored by HAMA Europe and Questex Hospitality Group and recognises exemplary work in asset management initiatives for the hospitality industry. The award was created to recognise the best hotel project in class which has led the way in terms of providing innovative solutions and maximising the return on investment as well as growing the asset value on a particular asset located in Europe over a time period of the last 2 years (2014-2015).
Theodor Kubak, HAMA Europe President; Senior Investment Manager, Union Investment and Cody Bradshaw, HAMA Europe Asset Management Achievement Award Jury Chairman; SVP Head of European Hotels, Starwood Capital presented the award and Kubak said: “Asset Management is a critical piece of the industry which often doesn’t get enough exposure. In creating this award, we hope to highlight the importance of Asset Management to the lifecycle of a hotel and the value it can deliver”.
Kerry Gumas, President and Chief Executive Officer, Questex said “although this was only the first year running this process, we were delighted to have seven strong finalists and see this award as an important part of the conference programme going forward. The role Asset Management plays in creating a strong base for the investment stage of the hotel cannot be underestimated. We look forward to developing this relationship into future years.
