HOTELS names 2019 Hotelier of the World award winners

CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The readers of HOTELS, a B2B media brand covering the global hotel industry, have chosen Nakul Anand, executive director of ITC Ltd., Kolkata, India, and Edward Staros, vice president and managing director, The Ritz-Carlton Resorts of Naples, Florida, as the 2019 Hotelier of the World award winners.

HOTELS print and online readers voted for nominees in both the corporate and independent hotelier categories based on criteria that include how the nominees have defined standards of service; achieved operational excellence and outstanding performance; creativity in management; and how much they have done for the greater good of the global hotel business as well as inside the communities in which they serve.

“What this year’s winners have in common is earnest belief that adding value, creating metrics and passing their knowledge forward are of the utmost importance,” said Jeff Weinstein, editor-in-chief of HOTELS. “Call them old-school values, but they stand up today and have proven to be successful quotients for Anand and Staros to deliver on all of our award criteria and the bottom lines for their organizations.”

Now in its 39th year, the Hotelier of the World award winners are profiled in the November issue of HOTELS. Anand, winner of the corporate award, was nominated by past winners and advisers to HOTELS along with nominees Tim and Kit Kemp of Firmdale Hotels, London; Alan Fuerstman of Montage International, Laguna Beach, California; and Frank Marrenbach of The Oetker Collection, Baden-Baden, Germany.

Independent winner Staros was nominated along with contemporaries Laurence Geller, Geller Capital Partners, Chicago; Olga Petroni of the Alvear Palace Hotel, Buenos Aires; and Nathalie Seiler-Hayez, Beau-Rivage Palace, Lausanne, Switzerland.

I have been involved with publishing and marketing for the past 37 years. My passion is helping people share their voice. I am able to do this through two important venues: One, with Area-Info.net where people can share everything from opinions to events to news. It is your choice! What do you want to share? Two, through a new program called America's Real Deal I am involved with to help business owners get their voice heard. For people who love to save money and earn while saving, there is a new program called the r network. You are provided with a card that entitles the user to automatic savings on more than 300,000 products. Learn more about the revv card today. This is by invitation only to be some of the first people to get this card. I schedule speaking engagements with community groups and business groups to share my passion about the importance of "sharing your voice".
