“Everyone adds value in the hotel industry,” says JWU grad (and Hilton's global head) Rob Palleschi. “The best ideas don’t come out of the corporate boardrooms."
"The best ideas come from the doorman, line cooks and room attendants. These are the individuals who are making us successful every day.” Rob should know: he’s spent more than 25 years rising up in the hospitality industry, most recently leading DoubleTree through a successful brand repositioning.

Demand for our products and services globally will continue to rise.” Ready to build the skills to stand out in a growing hotel industry? Explore our Hospitality College.
