Before leading DoubleTree by Hilton Tampa Westshore, Fischer pioneered the transformation of the Ocean Place Beach Resort & Spa into a luxury beachfront resort destination that rivals the reputations of national brands. He modernized the facilities to include new technology that enhanced guest communication, remodeled food and beverage operations through training and cost controls and improved operational staffing to maximize efficiency and positive guest experiences.
Moreover, Fischer served as the general manager of Hilton Aventura Miami, a AAA Four-Diamond hotel located in the bustling heart of South Florida. In that position, he was part of the opening team for the luxurious Virtuoso-preferred property, which ranked in the Top 10 Miami Beach Resorts by Travel + Leisure magazine for its unique and creative approach to customer service. Previously, Fischer served as the multi-property director of sales and marketing for Starwood Hotels & Resorts, where he played an instrumental role in the $180 million renovation of the Sheraton New York Times Square Hotel.
