30 Nov Tom Deutsch
Senior Vice President
Tom joined RHW in 1983 as Construction Manager after establishing a successful reputation with his own development and construction company. He quickly demonstrated his leadership acumen by overseeing the development and construction of RHWâ€™s first hotel project, the Residence Inn in Overland Park, KS.
Through the years Tom has guided dozens of quality hotel projects coast-to-coast from the initial site selection to completion. He has developed the expertise necessary to overcome challenging barriers to entry, negotiate sound contracts, oversee architectural design, ensure franchise standards and approvalsâ€¦ultimately delivering impressive projects on time while closely controlling costs. It is because of this that Marriott selected RHW to build the first Courtyard Generation 2 prototype in 1999 and in 2004 RHW was awarded the title of Developer of the Year by Hotel Business Magazine.
In March of 2009, Tom was named Senior Vice President of RHW where he continues to oversee all aspects of hotel Development and Construction with the additional responsibility of executive leadership over RHW Management. Additionally, Tom has been on the Design and Construction Committee for Residence Inn by Marriott since 1990 and also sits on the SpringHill by Marriott Construction Advisory Council.
Outside of work Tom is a licensed flight instructor, responsible for the evaluation and training for six major insurance carriers for high performance aircraft. He is also active in his church where he serves as a local Elder and teaches a weekly bible class.
