The New York-based hotel brand and management company says his new role will be to "oversee the group's evolution and expansion efforts".

With more than three decades in the hospitality business and 20 years with Dream Hotel Group's predecessor, Hampshire Hotels Management, Stein has served in a variety of property and corporate roles with both large and boutique hotel brands including Hilton Worldwide, Starwood Hotels and Resorts, and Doral Hotels. He began his career in 1983 with Hilton Worldwide at the Vista International Hotel in the World Trade Center in New York City. A veteran of food and beverage management, he turned his sights to general hotel operations and eventually became the managing director for three Doral Hotels in New York City.

After taking those properties through the transition to Starwood Hotels and Resorts, Stein then joined Hampshire Hotels Management as EVP of operations. He was promoted to be the COO, overseeing hotel operations and playing a vital role in its expansion efforts.

"With more than 30 years of industry experience, and many of those years with us at Dream Hotel Group, Jay is a recognised and respected leader," said Sant Chatwal, chairman of Dream Hotel Group. "His leadership and expertise make him the ideal candidate to lead our company as we enter into our next chapter as Dream Hotel Group."
