Schaumburg, Illinois-based hotel management company Hostmark Hospitality Group has named Patti A. Sedlacek vice president of revenue management. In her new role, Sedlacek will work closely with the company’s hotel general managers and sales teams to improve business planning and pricing.
“Patti has spent the past two decades honing and perfecting her revenue management skills, and her hotels’ bottom lines have benefited from her expertise,” said Jerome F. Cataldo, president and CEO, Hostmark Hospitality Group. “She worked hand-in-hand with our recently named COO, Ron Vlasic, as they helped grow Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants into a nationally recognized hospitality platform.”
Previously, Sedlacek held numerous positions with Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, culminating in a regional director of revenue management title. In that role, she oversaw a team of 10 revenue management specialists servicing 10 hotels in Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Texas and Arizona. Prior to that, she served as director of revenue management for the Embassy Suites by Hilton Chicago, where she improved hotel revenues by eight percent. Additionally, Sedlacek received the 2012 Bill Kimpton Award for Revenue Management.
“I enjoy the challenges associated with companies growing from smaller, regional entities into national powerhouses,” Sedlacek said. “Hostmark already is a well-respected name within the hospitality industry, and the company clearly is eager to move to the next level with its recently announced internal and external growth plans. I look forward to helping Hostmark meet and exceed its business objectives.”
