3.14 Eli's Favorite Food: PI(e)

Regional Director/Revenue Management

As a born and bred Californian, Eli has an ingrained knowledge of the importance of hospitality and travel to the people of the Golden State. Eli takes his responsibility for protecting our natural resources to heart and appreciates opportunities to participate in community projects to clean up and beautify the environment.

It’s this spirit of giving back and making things better than they were before that drew Eli to Evolution Hospitality. He admits that the caliber of the people, the collaboration, and the level of commitment of everyone on board helps keep him motivated as he works on optimizing revenues for the properties in his region. But what Eli appreciates most about Evolution is the corporate focus on self-improvement. From meditation to diet to managing stress, the monthly reminders that “It’s not how we work, it’s how we live™” resonate for Eli and he loves applying those philosophies to his daily routines.

A father of four, Eli and his wife, Jenn, appreciate the simpler moments of life. When not volunteering for environmental causes, Eli admits he and Jenn love going to the movies by themselves whenever they can.

A natural collaborator, Eli’s favorite Guiding Principle is “Listen.” He says, “Collaboration requires communication and communication requires that one listen.”
