09 October 2013 Parvez Ahmed Named District Manager for Washington, DC
I am pleased to announce the addition of Parvez Ahmed to the Towne Park Family! Parvez has been a client and friend to Towne Park over the past 15 years, hiring us at two hotels and recommending us to countless more!
Parvez recently held the position of Area General Manager for LTD Hospitality overseeing a portfolio of Starwood branded hotels at Maryland LIVE! Casino in Arundel Mills, Maryland. Previously, he was Vice President of American Hospitality Management, heavily involved in developing the entire management company.
During his 20+ years in the hospitality industry, Parvez has worked for brands under the Marriott, Hilton and Starwood flags while remaining an active executive committee member of the Hospitality Institute at Prince Georges County Community College. Born in Bangladesh, Parvez grew up in Silver Spring, MD before graduating from the University of Maryland (GO TERPS!). Today, Parvez resides in Silver Spring with his wife, son and two daughters. He loves to travel, spend quality time with his family, watch movies and play basketball.
I want to also thank Jim Boyer for his years of service and leadership with the Operations team. Jim leaves a strong legacy in the DC Market and his leadership and character will be missed. In addition, I want to thank everyone involved in the process of hiring Parvez: Jillian O’Rourke, Theo Apanco Perez, Steffan Sonneveldt and Kevin Gordon; special thanks for direct involvement in our selection.
