TORONTO — Realstar Hospitality recently announced changes to its senior leadership team. This restructure aligns with the company’s tactical growth plan for 2020 and the continued support of its franchisees across the country.

David Blades has been promoted to senior vice-president. 

Robb Frias now serves as vice-president, operations. 

Eric Barber takes on the role of vice-president, sales. 

Ally Wesson is the newly appointed vice-president, marketing. 

“This team of experienced hospitality professionals is a tremendous asset to each and every one in our franchise community,” said Irwin Prince, president & COO. “As we continue to expand the Days Inn, Motel 6 and Studio 6 brands across Canada, we are fortunate to be able to draw from our existing pool of exceptional talent.”

The company is a leader in the ownership and operation of multi-unit residential real estate, sports, entertainment and other community event facilities and hotels in both the limited service and full-service sectors.
