Hostmark Hospitality Group was founded in 1965 and has grown and adapted with countless changes to the hospitality industry. Originally founded as The Management Group in Chicago, IL, we merged with Hostmark International in 1991 to become Hostmark Hospitality Group.
For decades, our Chairman C. A. “Bud” Cataldo and his brother, Vice Chairman Robert Cataldo, nourished & guided the organization with a leadership based on integrity, family & partnership. Today, his son Jerome Cataldo leads the company as President & CEO with a new vision for the future.
In early 2020, Hostmark continued its strong growth through the acquisition of RAR Hospitality, a San Diego-based hospitality management group. The newly combined company now owns and operates both limited service and full service properties across the United States, with a portfolio spanning nearly 5,000 rooms across 32 properties.
