In 2015 Evolution became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Aimbridge Hospitality, one of the world’s largest privately-owned management companies. The symbiotic relationship improved, rather than changed, Evolution:
• Our relationship provides economies of scale without sacrificing
our unique identity and culture
• Massive investment in the industry’s best finance and IT platforms
• Segmentation of Evolution’s focus on lifestyle independent hotels
The Evolution Hospitality team worked together for many years at Tarsadia Hotels before spinning off as a separate company in 2011. Tarsadia, a family-owned hotel investment group, spared no expense to drive portfolio performance to ensure lucrative exits. Built from the ground up, our platform and culture, born under Tarsadia, is what makes us different.
• An entrepreneurial, ownership mentality
• Start-up mindset with a focus on fresh, innovative thinking
• A distinct and unique culture focused on associates realizing their full potential
• A casual and empowering ethos embraced by today’s millennial workforce
