With more than 30 years of multi-property corporate hotel management experience combined with high volume large hotel turnaround operational experience, Mr. Kobishop has provided vision and focus in driving strategic direction overseeing all hotel sales and operational functions.
During his 17 year career with Wyndham International, he was successful in a variety of general manager and corporate leadership roles while growing the company to 350 properties. Mr. Kobishop was recruited and selected as the top candidate in the US by Australia’s largest hospitality company to implement operational systems, processes and revenue generation programs for 140 locations. While with Wyndham Worldwide, he was responsible for the effective and successful operations for the company’s managed hotel and resort portfolio in North America, including directing the transition, renovation and re-launching of several properties converting to the brand. He has a very strong track record of driving revenue improvements while implementing operational efficiencies which resulted in surpassing targeted goals and consistent year over year NOI improvements, exceeding ownership expectations. Most recently overseeing the Sheraton Atlanta Hotel, Mr. Kobishop successfully directed the 763 room hotel with 96,000 square feet of event space through a $20 million renovation and repositioning of the property leading to the highest TripAdvisor rated convention hotel in downtown Atlanta and culminating in a very successful sale.
