The MetWest Terra team is comprised of a diverse group of capital managers, real estate professionals, and lifetime hotel operators. The team is led by Chairman Richard S. Hollander who calls on nearly three decades of the successful founding and management of institutional investment strategies which combined for total assets under management of $80.0 billion. MetWest Terra’s ability to attract the top talent in the industry has allowed the company to earn substantial credibility and provide results superior to its competition. In May 2013, a joint venture brought in HRI Lodging, led by Gary Gutierrez, to operate MetWest Terra Hospitality. The executives at MetWest Terra and HRI Lodging previously held senior positions with a variety of noteworthy hospitality companies including Kimpton Hotels, Morgans Hotel Group, Sofitel, Wyndham International, W Hotels, and Outrigger Lodging Services as well as financial institutions including Drexhal Burnham, Price Waterhouse, and Bear Stearns. The team often draws on past experiences and utilizes the best management practices of each of these distinctly unique companies in forming the standards of service and operation management style that defines MetWest Terra Hospitality as a premier hotel management company for the 21st century.
