HOTELS Magazine appoints new editor

From Ali Jahangiri, CEO, Outclick Media

I’m delighted to announce that David Eisen joins us today as Vice President and Editor-in-Chief of HOTELS Magazine, taking over from Jeff Weinstein.

Eisen brings more than 15 years of experience reporting on the hotels and hospitality industry. He joins us from Questex Media where he oversaw print and digital content for their Hotel Management and Hospitality Insights brands, and before that he was Director of Hotel Intelligence for HotStats.

“I’m excited to be joining and leading a publication and media brand with a storied legacy that is so well-respected within the hospitality community,” Eisen said. “I’m looking forward to working with the internal team, including HOTELS publisher Brian Levine, and externally with the broader hospitality industry to find creative ways to tell the stories of hotel owners, operators, brands, lenders, asset managers, consultancies and other stakeholders.”

“Our industry is going through a period of rapid change and accurate, timely reporting has never been more important to help our audience manage the challenges and grasp the opportunities that are ahead of us,” he said.

Eisen takes the reins of HOTELS Magazine from Jeff Weinstein, who stepped down from the role earlier this month after 28 years with the publication. Jeff is a giant of the hotel industry, and the success of the magazine over the past two decades is down to his knowledge, insight and dedication.

I would like to thank Jeff for all his hard work, and welcome Dave to his new role.
