The hospitality industry has long been one of the economic pillars of the New York economy and that trend appears to be on track to continue. Hotels form the backbone of the visitor experience here and astute managers have noticed stark shifts in their interests, demands and expectations of their time here.

One of Europe and America’s most respected hoteliers, Hervé Houdré began his tenure as Regional Director of Operations and General Manager of the InterContinental New York Barclay in October, 209.  Prior to this, he held the position of General Manager of the Willard InterContinental Washington D.C. since 2004.

Houdré was named “2006 Independent Hotelier of the World” by HOTELS magazine. He serves on the Boards and Executive Committees of the NYC Hotel Association and NYC & Company (Convention & Visitors Bureau) as well as on the Board of GSTC (Global Sustainable Tourism Council).  A leader in sustainable hospitality, Houdré published Sustainable Hospitality©, a white paper utilized by Cornell University’s Center for Hospitality Research.
