What year did you join the MMI family? 2006
What are three words you would use to describe the MMI family? Sincerity. Flexibility. Heritage.
What is a fun fact that you wouldn’t mind sharing with the world about yourself? While Micajah dreamed of being a residential architect when he grew up, he got his first job in the hospitality business as a Dishwasher at an all-girls camp in North Carolina. The experience must have been a positive one, as he ended up making his career in hospitality.
As President of MMI Hotel Group, Micajah works with the existing portfolio to optimize the relevancy of and experience in each of MMI’s hotels while also considering how additional properties both owned outright and through third party management contracts fit best into the family of franchised and unique offerings.
Micajah became the third generation in the Sturdivant family to assume the role as president in June 2013.
Outside of MMI, he serves as the Vice Chair of the Intercontinental Hotel Group Owners Association Crowne Plaza committee – an organization in he has served many years in various capacities focused on brands as well as the Distribution-Reservation channels. Prior banking and real estate experience includes time spent in lending at First Tennessee Bank and as an executive assistant to the CEO of an office REIT. He holds a MBA from Harvard University and a BBA from the Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College at the University of Mississippi.
