Hotel Equities (HE) has promoted Corbin Tipton to regional director of business development – Western Region. Prior to his promotion, he worked on HE’s business development team in the U.S. and Canada assisting with client communications and growth of the company’s hotel portfolio.
Tipton began his career with HE in 2017 as a participant of the Management in Training (MIT) program. During his time in the program, he held multiple roles throughout the portfolio, gaining hands-on experience working in all areas of hotel operations, including transitions and new hotel openings.

“Corbin has been instrumental over the last year and a half in the growth and strategy of HE,” said Joe Reardon, chief development officer. “His speed to market with clients, offering progressive solutions and driving our company culture has been a game changer. It has been incredible to watch Corbin grow in this role and progress to handling a larger west coast portfolio of states on behalf of HE. He will continue to be a trendsetter in our space.”
