To ensure that we deliver the highest-quality editorial product possible in Hotel Strategies, the editors of NREI have assembled the 13 hotel industry leaders pictured on this page as our Editorial Advisory Board. They bring with them a broad range of experience. For example: Paul Whetsell started out as a desk clerk. Morris Lasky began his hospitality career as an apprentice chef. Don Landry was breakfast supervisor at the Royal Orleans. Eric Danziger started as a bellman. Robert Parsons was a financial analyst with Marriott. And Mike Leven was in sales. This all shows that the concierge of today could be the CEO of tomorrow.
