The Gettys Group, an award-winning global hospitality firm specialising in interior design, consulting, branding and procurement, has announced the promotion of Principal Jerry Zeitner to the position of chief operating officer. The honor comes as Zeitner celebrates his 20-year anniversary with the firm.
“I am grateful for the opportunity and energized to help lead our company into the future,” says Jerry. “The COO position will provide the platform to find and shape today’s and tomorrow’s leaders, working with our teams to find innovative approaches to projects, growing our company culture and, of course, having fun. Any success, personal or professional, happens when you are surrounded by great people. Our success will continue to be driven by our exceptional teams.”
“Jerry has been an integral part of The Gettys Group’s growth,” comments Roger G. Hill, Chairman/CEO of The Gettys Group. “His wide-ranging knowledge of hotel operations, program development, design implementation and procurement management has been an essential asset to our company, and we look forward to his singular expertise continuing to guide the company’s vision.”
Zeitner began his tenure with The Gettys Group as a project manager on a renovation of a Holiday Inn Express in Smyrna, Georgia. He was later instrumental in the launch of Gettys ONE, a design group specialising in select-service hotels. He will continue to lead this group along with The Gettys Group’s Consulting and Procurement teams in addition to his new role.
“As an innovative and entrepreneurial company, The Gettys Group has guided and supported the creation of new project approaches and entire new business ventures in which I have been fortunate to be involved with,” Jerry states. “How can we not love what we do?”
