OTO Development, a South Carolina-based developer, owner and operator of hotels, has promoted and added team members in response to the company’s growth, including property openings and acquisitions in the next 18 months.
Anna Owens joins OTO Development as Regional Director of Sales, Northeast, supporting the sales teams at OTO’s hotels in Northeast, including the new Hampton Inn Times Square, opening in June 2015 . Her previous experience includes 9 years with CSM Corporation in Minneapolis, MN; most recently serving as Regional Director of Sales overseeing 20 Marriott, Hilton and Hyatt hotels across the United States.
After two years with OTO Development in the Northeast as Regional Director of Sales, Carla Tenenbaum is moving into the same role on the opposite coast supporting the growing West region. Before joining OTO Development, she was a Market Sales Leader and Director of Sales and Marketing with Marriott International for 22 years, demonstrating significant expertise driving results in transient and group revenues for hotels.
A General Manager with OTO Development in Thousand Oaks, California since 2009, Steve Tarn has been promoted to Area Director of Operations. Steve will act as General Manager of one hotel while providing leadership and oversight to two additional properties.
“OTO Development continues to grow by building high quality select service hotels in high barrier to entry markets,” said John Anderson, Chief Operating Officer with OTO. “With an impressive pipeline of new hotel construction, the time was right to add to our leadership on the West Coast with Carla’s move and Steve’s new role. This provided the opportunity to bring Anna on board to support our new and existing hotels in the Northeast.”
