Industry vet Phil Hugh launches advisory firm

Hospitality industry veteran Phil Hugh has launched Hugh Hotel Group, an organization focused on maximizing profitability and value for hoteliers through partnerships and relationships.

“The hospitality industry is filled with many players, but we remain a small industry that knows little about each other’s experience and which players are best when putting a team together to improve revenue and profitability across the board,” said Hugh. “I have been fortunate in my career to work with the best our industry has to offer and will bring those relationships to bear in ensuring each and every assignment has the best team our industry has to offer.”

Over the past three decades, Hugh has held increasingly influential positions within several major hospitality brands, including Radisson Hotels Group Americas, Red Roof, Realogy Franchise Group, Development Opportunity Corp. and Cendant Corporation (now known as Wyndham Hotels and Resorts).

“Phil understands the hospitality industry like no one else,” said Vijay Patel, president/CEO, Dhruv Management. “His advice is always excellent; his ideas are disruptive, strategic and easily implementable. He has the relationships and resources to get things done, and I look forward to working with him in his new endeavor.”
