Marcus Hotels hired Khairallah in 2013 as chief operating officer. In 2014, he started managing daily operations for the hotel division and joined The Marcus Corp. executive management committee.
Marcus Corp.’s hotels division has not had a president since September 2013, when Kirk Rose resigned less than a year after taking the post.
Prior to joining Marcus, Khairallah served as vice president of rooms, spa and security at Hyatt Hotels’ Americas Group. He worked at Hyatt for more than 30 years.
“Joe has built an organization focused on operational excellence, profitability, quality and integrity,” said Greg Marcus, president and chief executive officer of The Marcus Corp. “Under his leadership, the hotel division has enjoyed strong financial performance while continuing its unwavering commitment to exceptional guest service. We look forward to the continued success of the hotel division.”
