Pacific Hospitality Group Ventures Inc. (PHG) has named Garrett Busch as president of the Irvine-based hotel management group.
He succeeds outgoing president and chief operating officer Paul McCormick, who led the company for the past four years with record revues in 2019.
Busch was previously the vice president of capital markets and development and oversaw the acquisition of the Hotel Granduca in Austin in 2020 and the Hyatt Place Hotel’s construction in Phoenix which finished last year.
Most recently, he led PHG in the $25 million reinvestment of The Meritage Resort and Spa in Napa Valley. Busch also ran his family’s winery, Trinitas Cellars, for eight years.
“Garrett’s love for the business combined with his ability to run a multifaceted operation makes him the perfect leader for us. He is poised to take the helm and lead PHG to our next phase of growth,” Founder and Chief Executive Tim Busch, Garrett’s father, said in a statement.
Pacific Hospitality Group has 12 properties in its portfolio, including branded hotels and its Meritage Collection.
