Earlier this year, the nominating committee – comprising past HFTP Global past presidents, advisory council chairs and chapter presidents — were tasked with picking the HFTP members that would replace the outgoing directors of the HFTP Global Board. After a long day of interviews, the nominating committee was able to narrow their choices down. Without further ado, here is the official slate for the 2014-2015 HFTP Global Executive Committee and Board of Directors.
HFTP Global President Daniel Conti, Jr., CHAE, CAM, director of finance for Wyndham Grand Jupiter at Harbourside Place
HFTP Global Vice President Ian Millar, CHTP, senior lecturer, Ecole Hoteliere De Lausanne

Director Ted Horner, E. Ted Horner and Associates Pty. Ltd.
Director Chris Koepper, CPA, CFO of The Cliffs
Director Scot Campbell, CHTP, vice president of strategy for Caesars
Director Christopher Garland, senior vice president of operations finance for Four Seasons Hotels Ltd.
In accordance with Article X, Section 3, of the bylaws, should the slate above remain uncontested, the HFTP Secretary will cast a single ballot at the HFTP Annual Business Meeting at the Annual Convention & Tradeshow in New Orleans, LA. The Secretary will then declare the mentioned individuals as duly elected.
Raman P. Rama, CHA, CHAE, CHTP, served as chair of the HFTP 2014-2015 nominating committee and is the HFTP Global Immediate Past President. Rama is also the vice president and CIO/CTO of JHM Hotels.
