President – Yadewinder S. Dhillon ( Raj Dhillon )

Email- Raj@dhillonco.com

Having simplified his name to Raj, Mr. Dhillon brings the same consolidated approach to the complex and extensive areas of asset management and operations. Raj’s multi-faceted experience affords him an in-depth understanding of the intricacies of the retail, operations, valuations, development, redevelopment, management, financing and franchise of the hospitality industry.

“I draw from my experience in development, management and unique ability to reposition and draw value from neglected, old opportunities into new, exemplary models of performance and quality.”

Raj Dhillon is considered by many of his peers to be a true entrepreneur whose extensive experience in lodging, hotel land development, redevelopment, retail, customer service, and day-to-day management has successfully built multiple ground-up hotels, which are being owned by Dhillon Hotel Mgmt. & Development Group of Companies and managed today by the full service Dhillon Hotel Management Company. In the capital-intensive hotel industry, it is essential to have an operator who thinks like a developer and an owner. It is this equally shared understanding and focal point of Raj & Gurpreet, residing in Dublin, CA with their three children, that drives their enthusiasm for delivering exceptional products not only for their own children, but for generations to come. The developer side produces these exceptional products which, tomorrow, can still be defined as ground-breaking to the city and community, and the owner side which not only establishes, but manages the pillars of success to ensure objectives are achieved.

Raj Dhillon has created a well-developed network amongst individual investors, institutions, small and large local contractors and businesses, and internationally recognized hotel brands and parent companies that allows a creative approach to their opportunities. When not building on his passion, Raj serves as Vice President of a nationally recognized lodging industry organization known as Independent Lodging Industry Association (ILIA) and having served as secretary of the 7-Eleven Franchisee Owners Association made out of more than 400- 7-Eleven stores in the Greater Bay Area from 2003-2006.
