Atrium promotes Rob Mangiarelli to president/COO

Atrium Hospitality has promoted Rob Mangiarelli to president/COO. In addition, after serving as interim head of Atrium Hospitality, Craig Mason returns full-time as president of Atrium Holding Company, the parent company of Atrium Hospitality.

The company manages a portfolio of 82 hotels in 28 states, representing brands such as Hilton, Marriott, IHG and Wyndham and operates more than 20,000 guestrooms/suites and approximately 3 million sq. ft. of event space.

“When Rob joined Atrium Hospitality a few months ago, he jumped right in and quickly proved to be a trusted leader who deftly manages teams and the day-to-day operations of the company,” said Mason. “He’s effectively driving Atrium forward as an innovative, sales-driven organization that delivers exceptional guest experiences, all while poised for growth.”

Mangiarelli brings more than 25 years of hotel management experience to his newly expanded role. He joined the management company earlier this year as EVP/COO. Prior to Atrium, he served as COO of Magna Hospitality, where he managed a $4-billion hotel and real estate portfolio. His career also includes more than two decades with Hyatt Hotels Corporation, including as global head of asset management. At Hyatt, he was responsible for the areas of finance, revenue management, real estate, capital expenditures, technology, operations and human resources.

“I’m thrilled to lead Atrium’s exciting next phase in the company’s focused journey to grow and thrive,” said Mangiarelli. “During this remarkable period in history, we’ve learned even more about the dynamic nature of the hospitality industry. Being nimble and persevering is the Atrium way, and we’ve mindfully assembled a fresh leadership structure and support functions to enhance team members’ progress, guests’ memorable experiences and the company’s overall success against measured performance indicators.”

With more than 30 years of asset management experience, Mason resumes his role as president of Atrium Holding Company, representing the interests of the company’s investors and serving as the owner’s representative under the management arrangement with Atrium Hospitality. He will continue to oversee Atrium Holding Company’s asset management team as well as capital allocation and projects to ensure spending enhances the company’s portfolio. He will also assist the acquisitions team to identify, evaluate and execute viable hotel ventures to fuel the expansion of Atrium Hospitality’s management portfolio.
