The 2016-2017 Global Executive Committee and board of directors for Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals (HFTP) have officially begun their term. The association leaders represent a variety of segments within the hospitality industry, including clubs, consulting, hotels, finance, technology and more. The HFTP Global Executive Committee and board of directors volunteer their time and professional expertise to help guide and progress the association to the forefront of the industry as it carries out its strategic plan.
Under the vision of its board of directors, HFTP is able to expand its global reach and address the needs of the hospitality industry at large. In the coming year, the global nonprofit organisation will further expand its educational opportunities via the premier HITEC Amsterdam and HITEC Dubai events. The association will continue to promote its new information-based website portfolio: HITEC Bytes, HFTP Club Bytes, HFTP Finance Bytes and HFTP News.
“I came from outside the industry, and it wasn’t until I got involved with HFTP that I really saw the human component of hospitality. Through HFTP’s global conferences, I learned that it is the people inside of hospitality that make hospitality. I am humbled and proud to serve as the 2016-2017 HFTP Global President, and look forward to another successful year for our association,” said HFTP Global President Lyle Worthington, CHTP.
“HFTP’s Global Board is truly one-of-a-kind. Our association leaders have an excellent reputation for supporting projects and coalitions that affect positive developments in our industry. Thank you to everyone who has volunteered their time and energy to help HFTP remain a leading global educator for hospitality professionals worldwide,” said HFTP CEO Frank Wolfe.
