OLS Hotels & Resorts, a hotel management company of 23 hotels and resorts throughout the U.S., announced the newest addition to its Hawaii team, Director of Sales John Dailey.
In his new role, Dailey will be responsible for developing and implementing OLS Hotels & Resorts’ Hawaii sales strategy. Additionally, his diverse cultural background and bilingual speaking skills in English and Japanese will allow OLS to increase its footprint in the Asia market.
“We are very pleased to welcome John as part of our expanding Hawaii based team,” said Ben Rafter, chief executive officer of OLS Hotels & Resorts. “John’s sales experience and knowledge of the Hawaii hospitality market will be a valuable asset as we continue to grow OLS into Hawaii’s premier and only true local hotel management company.”
Dailey brings more than 20 years of local Hawaii hospitality experience to OLS Hotels & Resorts. Previously, he served as senior director of sales at Aqua-Aston Hospitality where he implemented successful sales plans for a portfolio of more than 40 properties. Dailey also held sales director positions with Pacific Beach Hotel, Outrigger Hotels and Resorts and Hilo Hattie.
OLS Hotels & Resorts currently operates five Hawaii properties: Hotel Renew and Royal Grove in Waikiki; Plantation Hale Suites in Kapaa and Banyan Harbor Resort in Lihue on Kauai; and Ainamalu at Waikoloa Beach Resort on Hawaii Island. In June 2019, OLS will debut the redesign of Hotel Renew, which will be rebranded simply as “Renew” with a focus on holistic Hawaiian wellness. The management company has plans to add several more Hawaiian properties to its portfolio over the next few years with a focus on filling the consumer demand for unique, independent properties that are reflective of each individual hotel’s location and culture.
