Tiffany Dipasquale

Hotel Drover, an Autograph Collection hotel, is pleased to announce the appointment of Tiffany Dipasquale to the role of executive director of sales and marketing at the 200-room rustic-luxe hotel set to open in March 2021.

Representing the modern-day pioneer, Executive Director of Sales & Marketing Tiffany DiPasquale brings over 21 years of experience to the soon-to-open Hotel Drover, an Autograph Collection hotel. DiPasquale oversees all aspects of sales and marketing for the rustic-luxe hotel set to open in early 2021, with 200 luxurious guest rooms and spa suites, a locally sourced eatery deemed 97 West Kitchen & Bar at Fort Worth Stockyards, two, one-of-a-kind boutiques, and more than 40,000 square feet of versatile indoor and outdoor meeting and event space. As the anchor of the award-winning Mule Alley district — which is located in the 130-year-old Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District — Hotel Drover celebrates the rich history and lore with its inviting design and core values, embodying the same pioneering spirit and key principles of honor and dignity exemplified by the drovers and great cattlemen and women of their time.

DiPasquale has carved out an outstanding hospitality career spanning over 21 years, holding key leadership roles for a number of large players in the hospitality sphere, including Aimbridge Hospitality, Interstate Hotels & Resorts, TPG Hotels and Resorts, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, and Midland Hotel Corporation. Throughout her tenure, she was tasked with increasing top-line revenue through effective yield management and sales strategies as well as analyzing and achieving strategic objectives and business growth. Most recently, as the area director of sales and marketing for Aimbridge Hospitality, she oversaw the daily operations for the Sheraton Fort Worth Downtown Hotel, where she led a team of 11 dedicated sellers and simultaneously opened the Delta Southlake. She also participated in multiple task force opportunities, including management company transitions and staffing changes for various markets including D.C. and New Orleans. Building strategic and diverse teams, and executing successful events of all sizes is what drives DiPasquale, as she brings an unconventional approach to her work. She pushes the envelope proudly and leads with an open heart, full of purpose and passion.

DiPasquale holds a dual-degree in Hospitality Management and Travel Tourism Management. An active member of the community, she has been awarded Rotary's highest honor for individual Rotarians, the Service Above Self Award, which recognizes those who have demonstrated exemplary humanitarian service. An avid yogi and cowgirl, DiPasquale can be found trail riding, reading, or cooking when not in the Stockyards, she currently resides in Weatherford, Texas — the cutting horse capital of the world — with her family.
