Mission, Vision & Values

We believe that being different means being better. We are different because we are, first and foremost, a hotel investment firm whose sole focus is on maximizing sustainable real estate value for our capital partners. We are innovative because we have a unique philosophy that embraces both Art and Science to create great, profitable hotels. We are successful because we have a clearly defined point of view about centralizing costs, flattening management and relying on proprietary Tools and Resources that have been proven to make a difference time after time.


At HEI we are dedicated to fulfilling our commitment of love to each other through meaningful relationships, growth in our people and actively building an associate community of diverse cultures, backgrounds and experiences, all while providing comfort and hospitality for those away from home.


We are a proven, cohesive team creating a legacy as the leading private hospitality investment and operating company, recognized by our associates, guests and capital partners as continually setting a higher standard of excellence.
