We are excited to announce that Dave Jenner has accepted the role of Chief Financial Officer of MMI Hospitality Group. For the first time in a long time, we have chosen a candidate outside of the MMI family who we believe respects our corporate culture while bringing industry insight and fresh perspective to our executive team in the Home Office. Dave’s first day with MMI will be Monday, December 4, 2017.
Dave comes to us after growing Interstate Hotels & Resorts, the nation’s largest hotel management company, 10x and taking it public, serving in various roles at Gaylord Opryland and overseeing finance at The Atlantis in The Bahamas. We are excited to build on Dave’s experience as our various business units explore new ways of working and growth opportunities.
Mike Hart’s title will change to Senior Vice President – Finance for MMI Hospitality Group effective January 1, 2018. Thereafter, he will be focused on our founding families’ investments while sharing his many years of experience in the MMI CFO role. Everyone recognizes that Dave has big shoes to fill following Mike in the role of CFO.
Once Dave gets settled into his new office in Flowood, he will shadow Mike’s work through year-end and then begin to reach out and introduce himself to the larger MMI family of team members.
