Atlanta-based Hotel Equities (HE) recently named Drew Salapka to the position of Vice President of Sales and Revenue Generation.

His responsibilities include leading the sales and revenue generation team which is responsible for the daily inventory and rate management of the firm’s hotels. His team analyzes the demand for all markets, evaluates market strengths and weaknesses, and reports key statistics that impact the industry and individual hotels. The team also manages sales processes and directs the ongoing training of all key sales and revenue staff members.

“Drew’s analytical abilities, business sense and sales experience make him a perfect fit for this key leadership position,” said Brad Rahinsky, Chief Operating Officer of Hotel Equities. “He spots trends quickly, positions our hotels accurately and keeps us successful.”

Beginning his hospitality career at the age of 15, Mr. Salapka worked in laundry at the Residence Inn in Alpharetta, Georgia while he was still in high school. Before his senior year in college, Mr. Salapka joined Hotel Equities in 1999 as a summer intern at the Fairfield Inn Atlanta/Perimeter Center. After graduation, he moved quickly to the position of Bench Manager, covering various positions at several of the company’s hotels. He served as Operations Manager at the Fairfield Inn Atlanta/Midtown before his promotion in 2000 to General Manager at the Fairfield Inn & Suites in Macon, Georgia where he served until 2004.

At that time, the company promoted Mr. Salapka to manage the TownePlace Suites Kennesaw where he also served as the TownePlace Suites Brand Manager for Hotel Equities. Marriott later named him General Manager of the Year for the brand. In 2006, Mr. Salapka added the challenge and responsibilities of part-time Revenue Manager for the company before moving into the position on a full-time basis in 2008.

Mr. Salapka is a graduate of Clemson University with a B.B.A. in Business Management. He and his wife reside in Cumming, GA. Active in his church, he leads a weekly small group study and serves as a Money Wise mentor. His interests include hiking, camping, waterskiing and traveling.

Hotel Equities (HE) is an Atlanta-based full-scale hotel management, development and consulting firm. Frederick W. Cerrone, CHA, serves as President and CEO. HE presently holds more than 50 properties in its portfolio. For more information, visit www.hotelequities.com
