Chief Executive Officer & Chairman of the Board at Ashford Inc.
In 1989, Monty Bennett founded Remington Hotels, a hotel known for its exceptional hospitality and dedication to fostering a community of passionate individuals. Bennett's leadership style at Remington was characterized by his commitment to ensuring everyone's voice was heard before making significant decisions.
Managing a large group of people can be challenging, as everyone has opinions on what to do and why. Nevertheless, Bennett made it a point to give weight to the ideas and perspectives of his employees to create an open and inclusive culture that drove high performance. He was just as invested in helping his employees build their careers at the company as in strengthening its portfolio.
Throughout his career, Bennett has honed his decision-making process by carefully considering every problem before making any decisions. He has become a master of executive-level forecasting. He is acutely aware of his company's performance and how his investors perceive everything from the size to the liquidity of different assets.
