Robert Stuckey

Robert Stuckey is AAHOA’s new vice president of business development. Previously, he was director, transitions and brand compliance for Davidson Hotels.

Stuckey also worked for ShawContract where he directed that company’s partnership with AAHOA. He also worked for InterContinental Hotels Group.

“[Stuckey] brings substantial experience to his position and a sound strategic vision for the association’s important business development work. He has an exceptional understanding of our members and the hospitality industry,” said Cecil Staton, AAHOA president and CEO.

Now is an important moment in the hospitality industry, Stuckey said.

“AAHOA, its members, and industry partners have always been an important part of my hospitality career, including working and consulting directly with members,” he said. “Feedback, partnership, growth, and innovation will be my mantra as we look to grow our value and connection with AAHOA members and industry partners, carrying out AAHOA’s 2021-2023 Strategic Plan, and continuing down the road to recovery for the entire AAHOA community.”

One priority for AAHOA remains lobbying for more financial aid from the federal government to help hotels affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
