Dave Hamilton Returns to MMI Hotel Group

Published June 3rd, 2019

MMI Hotel Group is pleased to welcome Dave Hamilton to its corporate team as Director of Business Development.  Focusing on partnerships with hotel owners who value the returns that engaged management can create, MMI appreciates the legacy and engagement Dave created during his career at Signature Worldwide, the leader in hospitality sales and service training. 
Dave Hamilton is actually returning to the MMI Hotel Group family after a 30-year hiatus where he served as Senior Vice President and company principal for Signature Worldwide.  Dave states, “For years I have admired MMI’s focus on guest service and how passionate they are about their team members.” Over the years Dave has gained a wealth of hospitality knowledge working directly with hundreds of hotel groups and thousands of sales and service leaders.  Additionally, his “partnership mentality” has given him the opportunity to work directly with the worlds most respected hotel brands to maintain their positions as guest service providers and revenue leaders.
Many of today’s hotel operations rely too much on the franchisor for success.  At MMI, real returns to guests, the community and investors alike happen when team members recognize their value as a part of the MMI management family.
In the last twelve months, MMI Hotel Group has opened and ramped IHG, Hilton and Marriott flags which currently rank at the top of their respective brands for customer service and guest experience.  The focused-service LaQuinta Inn & Suites, soft-branded, full-service Tribute by Marriott and extended-stay Home2 Suites currently in the management company’s development pipeline describe the breadth of brands that MMI Hotel Group is comfortable committing to serve as manager.  That confidence is rooted in the company’s Winning Way core values and affinity for Southern Hospitality.
