CAPE TOWN, South Africa. – PMR Hospitality Partners, a South African based award-winning full-service Hospitality Management and Advisory Company, is delighted to announce its merger with Valor Hospitality Partners which was formed by Euan McGlashan and Steve Cesinger, in Atlanta, USA in 2012.
PMR Hospitality Partners, formed in 2013 by co-owners and Managing Partners Tony Romer-Lee, Euan McGlashan, Michael Pownall and Graham Wood, have substantially grown the company on the African continent over the past 5 years and will now operate as Valor Hospitality Partners Africa.
Valor Hospitality Partners manage 40+ Hotel projects on 4 continents (North America, UK / Europe, Africa and Asia) with another 10 properties in the pipeline. Valor Hospitality Partners Asia most recently opened an office in Bangkok, Thailand. Valor share systems, processes, critical industry thinking and intellectual capital between senior executive staff and most importantly; global strategic leadership across the 4 continents. This unique offering makes Valor Hospitality Partners the most desirable purchase and ‘go to’ management company for Hotel owners.
Driven by pioneering world-class guest experience, a foundational employee culture & engagement, all wrapped in commerciality, Valor is committed to delivering strong owner returns.
With experiences ranging from small luxury boutique Hotels, game reserves, independent resorts and city Hotels, Valor has a diverse portfolio of exceptional properties.
Additionally, enjoying preferred management status and multiple international brand approvals to operate under franchise agreements – Valor is positioned to offer Southern African Hotel owners and developers’ significant commercial benefits via franchising rather than just brand operated or leasing.
Valor founder Euan McGlashan noted, “we all realized that joining forces globally made perfect sense and, in a business where multiple management companies exist yet none with our full-service strength, professionalism and abilities; merging was a massive win – win for both parties. Our perfectly aligned core values of integrity, courage, transparency and tenacity along with our combined owner-centric views of delivering award winning employee engagement & culture wrapped in a top and bottom line commerciality mindset, mean we could not be more pleased to have found a partner with such a strong cultural fit with a longstanding, highly regarded reputation in the hospitality industry.”
