ROBERT STILES IN HOTELIE SPRING 2013 MAGAZINE
Robert Stiles was highlighted as a Newsmaker in the latest Hotelie Spring 2013 magazine. He was honored for the prestigious Jack A. Shaffer Financial Advisor of the Year Award at January's Americas Lodging Investment Summit, the largest forum for the hotel investment community in the world.
“This is the most prestigious honor in the hotel investment banking community and is particularly meaningful to Rob as Jack Shaffer was a treasured mentor to him in his early days with Sonnenblick-Goldman Company in Asia and then as a partner here in the US,” said Douglas Hercher, a partner at RobertDouglas and a former partner at Sonnenblick-Goldman. “Like Jack, Rob believes that strong relationships are the key to every business deal – something that is clearly reflected over the years in his client-centric rather than transaction-focused approach to business.”
Currently based in San Francisco, Rob has been active in the hotel development, finance, and asset sales markets for almost 30 years. He spent the first half of his career in Asia, opening new markets and building one of the largest advisory firms in the region, and the second half in California focused on the North American markets.
