Were the term “tireless” defined in the Dictionary of Hotel Appraisals, it might be illustrated with a picture of Mike Brophy. Mike is a Partner and HVS Director of Business Development, a position he’s earned after years of active duty in virtually every field of hospitality. Mike’s appraisal and consulting work has focused on hotels and resorts in the eastern U.S., where for years he directed operations for HVS’ hotel valuation office in Atlanta. Mike has overseen or conducted nearly 1,000 appraisal and consulting assignments for limited-, select-, and full-service hotels, including convention center hotels across the U.S., island resort properties, and hotel portfolios with assets spread worldwide. No matter how exhaustive a job you have, you can count on Mike to meet your needs.
Mike has over 25 years of experience working at hotels and convention centers. He was Director of Convention Services for the Wyndham Franklin Plaza Hotel and held similar positions at the New York Penta and the New York Hilton, two of New York City’s most prominent convention hotels. Mike subsequently worked with the Wyndham Garden Hotel division, as Director of Food and Beverage and later Director of Operations for the Southfork Ranch Event & Conference Center, and as General Manager of the Two Rivers Convention Center in Grand Junction, Colorado. He has served as speaker and panelist for many years at the Hunter Hotel Conference and hosted the 2012 HVS Regional Hotel Valuation Summit in Atlanta.
A native of Philadelphia, Mike has since lived and worked in cities from coast to coast, including New York, Phoenix, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Dallas, and Atlanta. Mike and his wife spend most of their leisure time coaching and cheering their two sons, ages ten and eight, on the baseball diamond and football field.
