David Jurcak

David has a rich history as Managing Director and General Manager for iconic U.S properties, including The Homestead Resort, Barton Creek Resort & Spa, and significant meeting hotels like Atlanta's Omni Hotel at CNN Center. His success with Omni Hotels & Resorts landed him repeated acknowledgements as a top performing GM.

For the past 20 years, David has led properties in most every vertical, from city hotels, boutique properties, and 1,000+-room convention hotels to luxury resorts. He has the past experience to keenly understand all hotel operations roles, the attention to detail required for luxury resorts, the passion to lead complex teams, and a proven track record to drive results. Operationally, he successfully oversaw a $180 million expansion and renovation of a luxury resort project, managed multiple golf courses, spas, and private club memberships, and simultaneously ran 18 retail and 15 food and beverage outlets.
