JL: Tell me your position at Warner Hospitality, and your favorite thing about the job.
MF: I am the Executive Vice President of Development. The thing I like most about my career right now is, every day is different and filled with a new challenge. With working on a new project (three new ones this year at minimum) you spend a significant amount of time planning the approach, then you switch into construction mode, then finally operations. Once it comes time to get it open (like The William presently) things get very exciting and action-packed on a daily basis.
JL: Besides opening The William, what business projects are you looking for in 2014?
MF: Our focus will be on developing The William to its full potential, opening The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Sioux City in the fall, a third development that is being announced in a couple weeks, and fingers crossed, one more in New York.
