Jonathon Woolsey

Jonathon Woolsey is Vision Hospitality Group’s new development manager. Previously he was a project engineer and project manager for EMJ Construction.

Mitch Patel is president and CEO of Chattanooga, Tennessee-based Vision Hospitality.

Woolsey has previously developed several commercial property new-builds and re-developments across the southeast, such as Vision Hospitality’s Hampton Inn & Suites by Hilton Atlanta Decatur/Emory in Atlanta. His leadership was evident during that project, said Vision Hospitality’s Senior Vice President of Development and Construction Brian Parker.

“Jonathon was promoted twice while working on the Decatur project, which is unheard of in construction,” Parker said. “His dedication to the project, leadership, and value made Jonathon the top candidate for our new Development Manager position.”

In February Vision Hospitality announced it was building the first Aloft by Marriott in Chattanooga. The Aloft Chattanooga Hamilton Place will be part of Hamilton Place Sears redevelopment project, and Vision is partnering with another local company, CBL Properties, on the 135-room boutique hotel.
