NEW YORK, April 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Star Hospitality Group ("Star HG") announced today that Lance Herman has been appointed as Chief Operating Officer (COO) for the company's growing hotel staffing division. Herman most recently served as Area Manager for citizenM as the Dutch brand planned for, and then successfully launched, its initial presence in the New York market. Prior to working with citizenM, he served as General Manager for multiple properties representing the full spectrum of boutique and national hotel brands.
The New York market has seen unprecedented growth over the past 10 years, and Herman brings an abundance of specialized experience in the hospitality sector to this position. Star HG founder and president Mike Walker said, "Lance knows what our hotel partners need because he was one of them. He already understands how important it is for small and medium-sized properties to have turnkey staffing options so that property leaders and management companies can focus on guest satisfaction and revenue development."
Star HG is currently developing new and scalable service platforms that address increasing segmentation and brand-specific trends in the industry, as well as a variety of risk management initiatives that build on the company's already best-in-class reputation for high performance, low employee turnover, and training. In addition to leading those efforts, Herman will work to enhance other value-added aspects of client relationships, compliance matters, workforce development and general stewardship of the Star Hospitality Group brand.
In a meeting with all division managers this morning, Walker said, "Lance's appointment further demonstrates our commitment to leverage the smartest strategies and management tactics available to grow market share in one of the most competitive staffing environments imaginable. With his leadership, we'll take another step forward in defining our value proposition as a very attractive alternative to both internal staffing models and those currently being offered by typical outsourcing providers in the marketplace."
