Island Hospitality Management, one of the nation’s largest hotel management companies, announced today that it has promoted Gregg Forde to executive vice president and chief operating officer and Roger Pollak to executive vice president and chief financial officer.

“With a combined 47 years of hospitality experience, including 42 years with Island Hospitality Management and its predecessor companies, I cannot think of two more deserving people than Gregg and Roger to take on these expanded roles within the company,” said Jeffrey H. Fisher, Island Hospitality Management. “These promotions prepare our platform for what we hope to be a very active 2020. Our current portfolio includes 172 hotels, and our goal is to continue to develop new relationships around the country and expand our platform in 2020 and beyond. We are confident that Gregg and Roger will continue to provide the same exemplary leadership and direction they always have as we pursue our aggressive growth goals.”

Gregg Forde joined Island Hospitality Management’s predecessor in 2003 after beginning his hospitality career with Marriott International in 1998. He has risen steadily through the ranks, serving as general manager, area manager, portfolio manager, regional manager, regional vice president, senior vice president of operations, executive vice president and now also as chief operating officer. In this new role, Forde will be responsible for all hotel operations, revenue management, talent acquisition, sales & marketing and development & service organizations. He earned his Bachelor of Arts with a double major from Edith Cowan University in Western Australia, Australia.

Roger Pollak joined Island Hospitality Management’s predecessor as controller in 1995 and has held progressive positions within the company, including director of financial reporting and controller, as well as senior vice president-accounting. In addition to being responsible for all financial functions of the company, he also has administrative oversight duties, including corporate administration and risk management functions, as well as the company’s IT and business intelligence departments. Pollak has been critical to spearheading Island’s growth in third-party management contracts. Prior to joining Island, Pollak held similar positions with various companies, including a large real estate developer and property management firm.
