President & CEO
Steve Van, President & CEO of Prism Hotels, leads Prism to increase the value of clients' hotels. Founded in 1983 Prism works for special servicers, lenders and owners to rapidly reposition and turn around under-performing hotels.
For lender clients whose REO hotels are losing their flag, Prism has created a proprietary “interim” brand called InnPlace. We provide a short term, inexpensive solution with no PIP or termination fees.
Prism has managed repositioned or developed brands that include Hyatt, Omni, Marriott, Hilton, Sheraton, Embassy Suites, Holiday Inn and Radisson, as well as numerous independents.
Mr. Van was the first franchisee for Omni Hotels and for Doubletree Club Hotels and serves on the Doubletree Owners Advisory Board.
Mr. Van is a member of CMSA, MBA and the State Bar of Texas. His undergraduate and legal education was at the University of Texas at Austin. Past professional and civic involvement includes Young Presidents Organization, Director of the Texas Turnpike Authority, Assistant Attorney General of Texas and Director of the Atlantic Treaty Assembly (NATO’s US arm). In December of 2011, he was recognized by Hotel Business Magazine as one of the “People of 2012” in the hospitality industry.
