Kristin Assad

Kristin Assad is the new vice president and general manager at Stockyard Heritage Development Co.’s Hotel Drover in Fort Worth, Texas. The hotel is scheduled to open in the fall.

Assad has previously worked for Omni Hotels & Resorts, Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Rosewood Hotels & Resorts and most recently The Joule in Downtown Dallas. She also serves on the advisory boards for the Hotel Association of Northern Texas, University of North Texas Hospitality and Women’s Hospitality Network.

“It’s an exciting time for hospitality and entertainment in Fort Worth with boutique hotel properties and curated restaurants popping up across the city and in the Stockyards,” Assad said. “When I learned of the legacy project happening in the Stockyards, I was drawn to its rich history and vibrant future.”

In early December Vision Hospitality Group named Patty Martinez as its new regional vice president of operations.
