As the Managing Director of JHM International, Mr. Vinay Rama is responsible for identifying and executing new business opportunities in markets outside the United States. Given his passion for emerging markets, at present he is spearheading the expansion efforts in India, a country within which JHM is committed to having an increased presence.
Most recently, Vinay worked for Hodges Ward Elliott, a hotel brokerage/investment banking firm where he served as Vice President under Mark Elliott, who has consistently been labeled the top performing hotel broker in the United States. Just during the time Vinay spent there, the Elliott team was responsible for over $3.4 billion in hotel transactions, including the landmark 89-hotel $1.7 billion White Lodging sale to RLJ Development in early 2006. Much his team's success was based on their in-depth understanding of the hotel industry and its associated capital markets.
