Carlos Rubio joined Hospitality of Bluegrass in 2020. His varied experience in the hotel management and hotel development industries is an asset to our firm, as he has held progressive employment positions in several scales of franchised properties. Most recently, he served as a Regional Director of Operations for a hotel ownership firm with a strong growth strategy, which gave him experience in guiding day-to-day operations within a set of properties, as well as the opportunity to work on projects that were in planning, construction, and pre-opening phases. Carlos also oversaw capital renovations, led hotels though rebranding, maintained responsibility for financial performance, and implemented changes to increase guest satisfaction. He negotiated contracts with vendors and worked to ensure that compliance was made with franchise regulations. His experience in working with major brands such as IHG, Choice Hotels, and Marriott give him a well-rounded understanding of what success in hospitality should look like. Carlos is dedicated to consistently bringing out the best in his employees, as well as himself, and he will fit well into his new leadership role at Hospitality of Bluegrass.
