HospitalityEducators.com
Names Kathleen Hogan as President and CEO 

Kathleen Hogan, MBA CHO

 

July 4, 2016    

 

Effective July 4, 2016, the 6th anniversary of its founding, Kathleen Hogan, MBA CHO will assume the role and title of CEO of HospitalityEducators.com.  

This will include brand strategy and positioning, as HospitalityEducators .com continues to expand opportunities to deliver hospitality learning, professional certifications and problem solving options and vehicles for hotel owners and managers.

 

“HospitalityEducators.com has evolved from our original services as a membership site to one that provides a broad range of educational services and specific solutions for hotels,” says Hogan. “Almost 80% of the hotels in the US are under 150 rooms. While many of them are branded, an affiliation alone may not be enough for a small business owner to achieve the level of success they are seeking.  In the past six years, we have been repeatedly asked to offer recommendations on ways to improve profitability, to increase market share, to improve guest service or to offer personalized training assistance. The site offers valuable information, but the demand for personalized services has determined our need to expand and vary our delivery of knowledge and expertise.”

 

To meet those and other needs, HospitalityEducators.com is finalizing partnerships with several other entities to deliver an assortment of measurable results. These include:

  1.   Industry specific, “how to” videos for all levels in hotels

  2.    Online training for new managers and supervisors.

  3.   Regional workshops on soft skills development, sales and marketing, hospitality management and     human resources

  4.    Collaborative ventures and certificate programs with a select number of colleges and universities.

  5.     eBook resources, with an emphasis on hospitality and hotel management.      

  6.     A MasterMind series that identifies hot topics and stress areas, working with industry leaders in providing proven options and answers

Kathleen Hogan has a background in management, banking and finance.  With years of professional experience in business and an MBA in Human Resources Management, she has expanded her scope to include the hospitality industry over the last 20 years.  She is

Co-founder of HospitalityEducators.com, a consortium of successful corporate and academic professionals that delivers focused training and counsel in solving specific challenges facing hospitality.  

 

She has experience successfully launching entrepreneurial businesses in several different industries and her banking experience ranges from small-town savings to prime mortgage lending institutions in loan origination, processing, and desktop-underwriting.

 

HospitalityEducators.com Co-Founder John Hogan, CHA CHMS CHE CHO, who has served as CEO since 2010, will focus his efforts in creating new programs, new course content and the creation of a series of eBooks and blended learning vehicles.  His title will change to that of Chief Learning Officer (CLO) at HospitalityEducators.com.   He continues his industry service as Principal of HoganHospitality.com, which provides keynote addresses, consulting and expert witness services.
