Denise Kauble is now director of asset management for Noble Investment Group. Also, Melissa Blankson is the new real estate paralegal for the Atlanta-based company, led by Mit Shah as CEO.

Kauble previously was regional director of sales and marketing and area general manager for McKibbon Hospitality where she oversaw sales for the East Coast. In her new role, she will be responsible for working with third-party management organizations and on-property leadership of Noble-owned assets.

“Denise’s experience and industry knowledge complement Noble’s abilities to maximize revenues and drive performance in our hotels,” said Noble principal Steven Nicholas.

Blankson previously worked for Cox Enterprises. She has more than sixteen years of legal, risk analysis, and credit underwriting experience in the commercial real estate industry. Blankson will be Noble’s liaison with external counsel on various legal and transactional matters.

“Melissa is an outstanding addition to our capital markets and investment management team,” said Noble principal Adi Bhoopathy. “Her wealth of knowledge and experience will help to enhance Noble’s endeavors to preserve and grow our limited partners’ capital.”

In January, Noble made three new appointments to its senior management lineup. They are Ben Brunt as chief investment officer, Jim Conley as chief compliance officer, and George Dabney as chief financial officer, and all three are principals, too.
