Summit Hotel Properties Announces President And CEO, Dan Hansen, Named To The American Hotel & Lodging Association Board Of Directors

Summit Hotel Properties, Inc. (NYSE: INN) (the “Company”) today announced that President and CEO, Dan Hansen, has been named to the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AH&LA) 2014 board of directors. The new board of directors is comprised of C-level lodging executives representing the full scope of the lodging sector, including brands, owners and REITs, management companies, independents and state associations. A new board was selected to reflect the completely new strategic direction and membership model passed last June by a vote of association members.

“I am honored to be part of the 2014 AH&LA board of directors,” said Dan Hansen. “I look forward to working alongside such a talented and well-respected group of lodging experts.”

Serving the hospitality industry for more than a century, the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AH&LA) is the sole national association representing all segments of the 1.8 million-employee U.S. lodging industry, including hotel owners, REITs, chains, franchisees, management companies, independent properties, state hotel associations and industry suppliers. Headquartered in Washington, D.C., AH&LA provides focused advocacy, communications support and educational resources for an industry generating $155.5 billion in annual sales from 4.9 million guestrooms.

Dan Hansen has served as President and Chief Executive Officer, as well as a member of the board of directors of Summit Hotel Properties since taking the company public in February of 2011. Mr. Hansen is a board member for the IHG Owners Association, is a member of the National Association of Corporate Directors and serves on the Interstate Hotel & Resorts Advisory Council.

“AH&LA now begins a new chapter, bringing together the entire industry under one national umbrella, focusing the association on proactive and effective advocacy, and allowing the industry to speak with one voice,” said AH&LA President and CEO Katherine Lugar. “We are thrilled that our new board is comprised of a dynamic group of senior industry leaders who will lead the AH&LA’s future strategic direction. I’m confident Mr. Hansen will be a valuable contributor of the thought leadership and direction crucial to ensuring AH&LA and the industry are best-positioned to tackle the challenges and meet the objectives of the future.”
