Scott McAllister Joins Lodging Dynamics Hospitality Group as Chief Operating Officer

PROVO, UT. March 28, 2017 - Lodging Dynamics Hospitality Group (LDHG) today announced that Scott McAllister, formerly of Marriott International, Inc., will assume the duties of Chief Operating Officer at the award-winning, hotel development and management company. Most recently, McAllister served as Area Vice President of Lodging Development for Marriott.

Following a diverse, 27-year career at Marriott, McAllister searched for a firm that he felt had the values, reputation, growth potential, and standards consistent with the direction he wanted to take his career. "As I was considering my own career opportunities, Lodging Dynamics was the best and only company that could motivate me to leave Marriott," remarked McAllister. "My reputation in the hotel industry has been forged over many years. For me, it is important to work with a company that consistently delivers on the highest standards and results with the greatest team and the strongest culture."

While at Marriott, Mr. McAllister developed competencies in all aspects of the hotel industry; throughout his career, McAllister's responsibilities ranged from sales, marketing, and revenue management, to development and operating roles throughout Marriott's premium brand, select service, and extended-stay market segments. During his most recent 6 years as VP of Lodging Development, McAllister added over 150 new hotels into the Marriott portfolio.

McAllister will be responsible for overseeing the hotel management division of Lodging Dynamics; his duties will include the facilitation of continued growth for Lodging Dynamics through new unit growth, development and maintenance of strong owner relations, and continuing to improve top line and NOI performance. In addition to operating responsibilities, McAllister will provide additional expertise to Lodging Dynamics' development and acquisition divisions. "When the opportunity to hire Scott McAllister came our way, it was an easy decision because Scott's skillset and experience are perfectly aligned with both our growth and operating strategy," stated Joel Sybrowsky, President and CEO of Lodging Dynamics. He continued, "As Lodging Dynamics continues to grow through acquisition, development, and third-party management activities, McAllister will help Lodging Dynamics maintain its high standards for operational performance."

Hotel Spa: Measuring the Results
As the Hotel Spa and Wellness Movement continues to flourish, spa operations are seeking new and innovative ways to expand their menu of services to attract even more people to their facilities, and to and measure the results of spa treatments. Whether its spa, fitness, wellness meet guest expectations. Among new developments, there seems to be a growing emphasis on science to define or beauty services, guests are becoming increasingly careful about what they ingest, inhale or put on their skin, and they are requesting scientific data on the treatments they receive. They are open to exploring the benefits of alternative therapies like brain fitness exercises, electro-magnetic treatments, and chromotherapy but only if they have been validated scientifically. Similarly, some spas are integrating select medical services and procedures into their operations, continuing the convergence of hotel spas with the medical world. Parents are also increasingly concerned about the health and well-being of their children and are willing to devote time and money to overcome their poor diets, constant stress, and hours spent hunched over computer, tablet and smartphone screens. Parents are investing in wellness-centric family vacations; yoga and massage for kids; mindfulness and meditation classes; and healthy, locally sourced, organic food. For hotel spas, this trend represents a significant area for future growth. Other trends include the proliferation of Wellness Festivals which celebrate health and well-being, and position hotel spas front and center. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these trends and developments and examine how hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
