Nomination Kurt Alexander

Kurt Alexander has been appointed president of Omni Hotels & Resorts, taking over from Peter Strebel, who will now become the company’s chairman.

Graduated from the University of Virginia with a Masters in Accouting, Kurt Alexander began his career as Auditor at Ernst & Young. Two years later he became Vice President of VRA Partners and in 2014 Vice-President of TRT Holdings, the parent company of Omni Hotels & Resorts.

He joined Omni Hotels & Resorts as Chief Financial Officer in 2014. He since worked with all disciplines of the company to address strategic priorities, while also overseeing shared services, corporate accounting, capital finance, procurement, risk management, property tax and financial reporting.

He has held a number of positions within the company, including VP of finance, director of strategic planning & asset management and he participated in the company’s Executive in Development program when he joined the company.

I’m very honored by this opportunity and humbled by the support, confidence, and encouragement that I have received from Blake and Peter. I have been fortunate to be on Peter’s team and to have a front row seat to his leadership over the last four years—particularly during COVID. I look forward to partnering with him and our incredible family of associates as we continue to deliver memorable experiences to our guests and compelling returns to our owners. 

Kurt Alexander, President of Omni Hotels & Resorts 

Peter has been an outstanding leader for Omni Hotels & Resorts over the past four years. The pandemic was the darkest time in our industry’s history, and Peter’s leadership was invaluable to get us through. In many ways, Kurt has been preparing for this role for several years; collaborating with Peter on all consequential company decisions. He is wise beyond his years and is the right person to serve our associates and guests going forward.

Blake Rowling, President of TRT Holdings 

I have every confidence in Kurt’s abilities and his dedication for the work we do. We share a common set of values, and a shared business philosophy. Over the last four years, we have been tested in ways that we could have never imagined, and now that we are seeing an uptick in business and travel trends, I eel that now is the opportune time to channel my skills in the areas that really fuel my passions, and I am grateful to have an ownership who will support me in this transition. I whole-heartedly congratulate Kurt, and I am certain that he will do an exceptional job. I look forward to working alongside him in our new roles.
