ATLANTA—Hospitality Ventures Management Group (HVMG), an Atlanta-based, privately owned hotel ownership and management company, announced that it is adding to its real estate and business development team. Amanda Chivers has been named corporate director of acquisition and business development. Chivers will assist in identifying and acquiring existing hotels, securing third party management assignments and supporting ground-up construction projects, as well as assisting with the overall growth of owned and managed assets.
“Amanda has an impressive background in asset management, acquisitions and hospitality investment, making her the ideal candidate to help HVMG execute on its strategy of aggressive, yet measured, growth,” said Mary Beth Cutshall, HVMG’s senior vice president of acquisitions and business development.“HVMG’s portfolio of owned and managed hotels has more than doubled over the past four years, and we are committed to continue this level of growth over the next three to five years with Amanda’s assistance.”
Prior to joining HVMG, Chivers was an asset manager specializing in non- or under-performing hotels with TriMont Real Estate Advisors. She also served as director of real estate transactions for Moody National Companies, where she was involved with over $1 billion in private equity investments in hospitality assets. She also is an active member of Commercial Real Estate Women, and serves as a board member and vice-president of sponsorship for the Atlanta Hospitality Alliance.
“Achieving meaningful growth through strategic acquisitions, new builds and third party management requires a broad range of skills that I’ve acquired in my past roles underwriting and conducting due diligence of hospitality real estate assets and most recently as an asset manager,” Chivers said. “I’m eager to play a role in helping shape the growth of HVMG’s expanding portfolio.”
