IHM About-Face: Stewardship 2010

Thousand Oaks, CA – May 5, 2010 – (RealEstateRama) —  In 2007, Investors Hospitality Management  (“IHM”) introduced the hospitality industry’s first sustainable 3rd party management and ownership services company, whose mantra “stewardship with sustainability”, was adopted by many industry media and green hoteliers.  From IHM’s initial emphasis on sustainability, however, John Glen DiGuiseppe, IHM Founder/CEO, recognizes it’s time for an industry about-face as he states: “Stewardship in the 2010 US economy as “the essential condition for profitability”.

IHM’s about-face pivot highlights the “stewardship” aspect of IHM’s mantra to provide IHM clients with addressing the ultimate question of sustainability:  fiduciary accountability and viable business models.

DiGuiseppe continues:  “Fiduciary accountability is a first step for sustainability.  IHM produces state-of-the-art revenue management systems for hospitality.  IHM’s e-marketing services net clients  $12 profit for every $1 spent, through our proprietary system which is trackable and quantifiable. Sean Kane, VP, Marketing, designed our e-marketing package which also features e-mail blasts, Twitter and Facebook, advertising, travel agency partners and direct contracts with travel industry purveyors.”

Currently, IHM is developing its signature social media bundling package “IHM e-Connect™”, an exclusive option for international and national clients who wish to contract social media, press kit and targeted business development and public relations services.

IHM captures opportunities for business development by counseling clients in revenue management, green certification, online booking and hotel management contracts for resorts, business and economy hotels and independent brands.  IHM clients span Marriott, Hilton, Hyatt,  and Wyndham hotel chains in addition to independent and boutique hotel collections.  Within this spectrum, DiGuiseppe states, “There’s an ever growing market for e-marketing.  It’s no longer a viewership of 18-25 year olds.  The 3 million new viewers represent the 36-57 population range.”

DiGuiseppe was recognized by Lodging magazine as an ”industry innovator of 2009”, and IHM’s legacy in sustainable design, environmental sensitivity in FFE procurement, selection and vendor relationship dialogue blend its strategic revenue management offerings with building optimal client relationships.

DiGuiseppe holds a Juris Doctor from Abraham Lincoln University School of Law and a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from California State University, Northridge. For further information, contact John Glen DiGuiseppe at 818-429-2188, www.investorshm.com, e-mail:  johnd (at) investorshm (dot) com.
