The
Quebec market is unique and definitely needs a “boots on the ground” approach
to understanding the heart of the lodging industry in this province. Given the
pair’s vast hotel appraisal knowledge and bilingualism, HVS is now much better
positioned to offer its variety of services provincewide to a dynamic industry
which is witnessing significant growth.

Monique Rosszell is a partner
and the managing director of the Toronto and Montreal offices of HVS Canada.

Upon
attaining a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics from Queen’s University, she fell in
love with the hotel industry in Japan and subsequently enrolled in the Master’s
program in Hotel and Restaurant Management at the Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne.
After numerous years in hotel operations, her hotel passion subsequently led
her to attaining both her AACI and her MRICS appraisal designations in Canada.

Monique
has been working in the hotel industry for over 25 years and has completed
thousands of valuations and feasibility studies, including transaction and
portfolio valuations throughout Canada and the USA. She also offers hoteliers
and developers brand search and contract negotiation support. Given her vast
knowledge of the Quebec hotel markets and fluency in French, HVS has a strong
presence in the Province of Quebec. She also offers litigation and expert
witness support, speaks at numerous annual conferences, authors articles
including the annual Canadian Hotel
Valuation Index
and is a well trusted advisor within the lodging industry
in Central and Eastern Canada.
