DALLAS — G6 Hospitality LLC has announced the retirement of its president and CEO Jim Amorosia. Rob Palleschi, the company’s chief Development officer, has been appointed to the position of interim president and CEO, effective immediately.
Amorosia retirement concludes a 33-year career with G6 Hospitality. During his time as CEO, which he held since 2011, Amorosia led the company through a $500-million capital-investment program. Under his leadership, the company was repositioned through significant investment in technology, acceleration of owned asset sales and more than doubling the size of the franchise system.
Palleschi joined G6 Hospitality in 2017 as chief Development officer. Prior to joining the company, he served as CEO of TGI Fridays and spent 12 years at Hilton Worldwide as global head of full-service brands.
“I’m excited to take on this new position and we thank Jim for his many years of service to the company,” says Palleschi. “Moving forward, we see a clear path for continued growth and expansion for our brands well into the future.”
