On the property level, Capps will assist in strategizing areas to increase revenue for each hotel and consistently assess the revenue efforts of targeted campaigns and initiatives. He will work with each property team to coordinate packages, promotions and e-blasts with a goal of augmenting revenue production. With a tailored approach for meeting each property’s specific needs, the integration of revenue management within specific operations channels is a key component to client success and one of Charlestowne Hotels’ strongest differentiators.
