ATLANTA—Valor Hospitality Partners, a global, full-service hotel management company, announced today the expansion of their corporate leadership team with the appointment of Paige Harris as corporate director of design and development. This leadership team addition marks the company’s growth on the heels of their recent acquisition of 17 UK properties.
As Corporate Director of Design and Development, Harris oversees property plans for Valor Hospitality sites that are both fully operational and under construction to strategically merge the interest of the owner, operations and brand while ensuring the project stays within budget. She does this with the overarching goal to align the design intent and execution with the high standard of excellence in design and function that Valor Hospitality is known for.
“I’m thrilled to join Valor Hospitality’s corporate leadership team. This team is filled with incredibly intelligent people, and I’m honored to have the opportunity to be a part of it,” said Harris. “Travel and design have always been my professional and personal passions. I’m eager to merge the two and begin working on Valor Hospitality’s global properties.”
A seasoned industry leader and entrepreneur, Harris brings more than 25 years of design experience to the Valor Hospitality corporate leadership team. Prior to joining the team, Harris owned a full-service interior design firm, Studio Abode, that specialized in multi-family and hospitality clientele. In this role, Harris oversaw both new construction and renovation projects, spanning from garden style to high-rise residential, active adult communities, student housing facilities, as well as limited and full-service hotels. In her new position, Harris will play a vital role in a variety of Valor Hospitality projects, including Dunluce, Crowne Plaza Suffern, the recent U.K. properties acquired, Gulf State Park Cabins and more.
“We are incredibly excited to welcome Paige to our team. Her expertise in design and background in entrepreneurship make her not only a fantastic fit for this role, but also the perfect match for our company culture,” said Euan McGlashan, CEO and Co-Founder of Valor Hospitality. “After previously collaborating with Paige’s interior design studio on several projects, we found our values to be perfectly aligned and we know she will be a great asset to our team as we continue to grow our global presence.”
