LARKSPUR, Calif./Los Angeles – February 14, 2023 – Veteran hospitality professional Chris Dobbins recently joined forces with GreenRock Capital LLC (GreenRock) as managing director. Dobbins has more than 32 years of experience in the hospitality industry with executive roles in operations, sales and marketing, and development at Marriott, Starwood, Hyatt and Intercontinental Hotels Group. During his 20 years in development, he worked on all types of deal structures including portfolio acquisition, condominium hotels, joint venture as well as corporate owned, franchised and managed deals.
“We are very fortunate to have such an experienced industry professional as Chris collaborate with the GreenRock team,” said Joe Euphrat, managing principal of GreenRock. “In real estate and development, he developed all types of hotels from luxury and boutique segments to select and extended stay hotels.”
At Starwood, Dobbins developed for the brands Westin, Sheraton, Four Points and Luxury Collection in Western U.S. and Canada. He also helped launch the Aloft and Element Select Service brands. In the 11 years at Hyatt, Dobbins helped launch a $2 billion select service platform with the Hyatt Place and Hyatt House brands, and developed more than 100 hotels.
The first 12 years of his career, he oversaw hotel operations as well as sales and marketing. Dobbins graduated from Appalachian State University with a B.S. in business and specialization in hospitality resort management.
This hiring comes on the heels of a string of GreenRock’s financings last year; most recently, a C-PACE senior living transaction in Tennessee, the first C-PACE deal to close in that state. In addition, the firm closed a $103 million C-PACE transaction for Chinese Hospital in San Francisco earlier last year. The Chinese Hospital deal was the largest single C-PACE transaction in PACE industry history, and the first to combine both taxable and tax-exempt financing in the same transaction.
