The Statler in downtown Dallas named Evan Danziger general manager and Jennifer Wasserman as director of sales and marketing. The boutique luxury hotel is currently undergoing a $225 million renovation and is anticipated to open in spring 2017.

Danziger joins The Statler with more than 13 years of experience in hotel management, including a variety of top-level management positions throughout the United States. Additionally, he owned and operated a recruitment agency called Open Door Hospitality for five years where he recruited for high-profile companies within the hospitality industry.

Wasserman brings more than 20 years of hotel sales and marketing experience to The Statler, most recently serving as opening director of sales and marketing at The Highland Dallas. Wasserman also currently serves as the director of leadership for the D/FW chapter of Meeting Professionals International.

“We are honored to welcome two remarkable hospitality executives to The Statler,” says Dave Johnson, president and CEO, Aimbridge Hospitality. “Both Evan and Jennifer are proven experts in the hospitality industry and with their combined wealth of experience, are the perfect fit for a redevelopment of such magnitude as The Statler.”
