LOS ANGELES, Aug. 1, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — “With great pleasure I am able to announce Mr. Paul Savarino has agreed to join Able Services as Vice President of Engineering,” said Jeff Palmer, Senior Vice President of Engineering. “Paul’s vast experience in sustainable facilities operations and his customer centric hospitality background make him a fantastic addition to our team.”
Mr. Savarino will be responsible for executing the continued expansion and quality assurance of Able’s well-known brand of facility solutions in the Los Angeles region.
Paul began his facilities career at the Ritz Carlton Hotel Brand in Boston and was promoted to the company’s San Francisco property where he eventually became the Director of Engineering. As the Director of Engineering at the Ritz, his experience prepared him for his next promotion to the Director of Property Operations at the “World Famous” New York Palace Hotel.
The Palace is a 1.2 million sq. foot property consisting of 900-guest rooms, 2 restaurants, 4 kitchens and 30,000 square feet of function space. Like all iconic hotel properties, the Palace is a 24/7 day a week operation. Mr. Savarino’s role not only included streamlining and teambuilding a staff of over 50, but he was also responsible for a major property renovation and reposition.
Paul is well versed in budgeting, capex project management, energy savings, labor relations and sustainability initiatives. Under his tutelage, the Palace Hotel developed a strategic sustainability plan which includes operating with 100% renewable energy and resulted in the property’s Green Key Certification with a 4-key Rating. The Palace is the largest of all green hotels in NYC.
After advancing the Palace’s operations, Paul moved west to the La Quinta Resort and Club as Director of Property Operations. He was tasked with delivering outstanding guest experiences and achieving financial profitability. Most recently Paul has had oversight and managed several capital improvements at The Beverly Hills Hotel including renovations to the historic bungalows, meeting spaces, outlets and public areas.
“We are truly excited to have Paul’s expertise and leadership added to our Los Angeles operations,” said Jeff Palmer. “One of our core cultural values as an organization is to deliver superior value to our customers. Paul Savarino is a proven asset that will help us execute.”
