Virgin Hotels Collection names VP, development

Virgin Hotels Collection has appointed Tim Wyman VP, development. In this role, Wyman will identify new business, including management and investment opportunities, for the company.

This comes on the heels of the recent formation of Virgin Hotels Collection, which brought together Virgin Hotels, Virgin Limited Edition and Virgin Residences into one parent company to accelerate the global footprint for Virgin Group’s hospitality business.

Wyman brings more than 20 years of experience from various functions within the hospitality and real estate industries, most recently serving as VP, investments at NewcrestImage. At the hotel investment firm, he spearheaded the development of several upscale hotel projects and underwrote numerous investment and acquisition opportunities. Prior to that, he served as regional VP, real estate and franchise development at Choice Hotels International, where he was responsible for sourcing and underwriting real estate and mixed-use development opportunities in high-growth urban markets for Choice Hotels’ upscale brands. Prior to joining Choice Hotels, Wyman also led the development of numerous hospitality projects as VP, real estate at Gatehouse Capital.

“Tim joins the Virgin family at a timely moment as we plot our ambitious growth strategy under the newly formed Virgin Hotels Collection,” said CEO James Bermingham. “He brings a diverse skill set, extensive industry knowledge, and a proven track record that makes him an integral addition to the team.”
