“Behringer Lodging Group represents a formal and dedicated commitment to an important part of our strategic heritage,” said Robert Aisner, President and CEO of Behringer.
Matt Comfort and Jeff Burns will lead BLG as managing directors.
Combined the duo has more than 30 years of real estate experience in the hospitality space and have been involved in $15 billion worth of real estate transactions.
