Dan McEwanPRESIDENT & PRINCIPAL“Human performance is our mantra because it’s the core driver for both guest experience and financial performance. Hotel staff members are at their best when they know they are valued, when they are given clear, achievable goals, and when they are rewarded for outstanding work. This is a simple truth that’s difficult – but important – to get right.” — DAN MCEWAN, PRESIDENT AND PRINCIPAL Dan McEwan founded Maximum Hospitality in 2001, after running two successful investment firms and overseeing twenty hotel projects at a real estate development firm – working closely with owners, contractors and lenders. A hotel owner himself with deep industry relationships, Dan then added operational expertise, after perceiving a void in the hospitality management industry. This led to the creation of Maximum Hospitality, built on the philosophy, “To manage each property as if it were our own.” To date, Maximum Hospitality has managed more than $500 million in hotel assets. Dan graduated cum laude from the University of Mississippi with a B.A. and received his M.B.A. from Vanderbilt University. He presently serves on the boards of the Neighborhood Christian Centers, Memphis University School Alumni, and Memphis Gridiron Ministries, and is an elder at Independent Presbyterian Church.
