ATLANTA, GA – Atlanta-based Hotel Equities (HE) elevates their sales and marketing division with the appointment of industry veteran Cesar Wurm as VP of Sales and Marketing. In his new role, Cesar will lead HE’s enterprise-wide strategic sales effort while supporting the regional sales team and driving best-in-class performance results. The award-winning hotel ownership and management company continues to elevate talent and focus on driving results for key stakeholders.

His departments achieved back-to-back records for sales and revenue in his previous roles, establishing himself as a market positioning expert through strategy, leadership and deep industry relationships.

“Hotel Equities is an extraordinary company and I’m honored to join their dynamic team,” said Cesar. “I look forward to contributing to the company’s continued growth by producing high-performing hotels and delivering optimal results for our partner stakeholders.”
