Consulting Experience

Jerod Byrd, one of HVS’ premier experts on hotel markets in the northeast, New England, and Mid-Atlantic regions, is Senior Vice President, Partner and Director of Operations for HVS Philadelphia. Jerod has been instrumental in several hundred hotel consulting and appraisal assignments at HVS, including market studies, feasibility studies, and valuations of existing and proposed hotels and portfolios. He leads a team of hotel professionals whose collective experience spans virtually every major market and submarket in Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey, and surrounding states—a framework of hotel industry expertise that supports the rapid turnaround of thorough, authoritative reports about regional hotels.

Jerod has leveraged his research into hotel performance, demand generation, and economic trends to pen insightful articles on hotel markets in Wilmington, Newark, Philadelphia, and Baltimore. He has been a featured speaker at the University of Delaware’s hospitality program and hosted the 2012 HVS Regional Hotel Valuation Summit in Philadelphia. Jerod earned dual BBA degrees in Hospitality & Resort Management and Real Estate from The University of Memphis and is a state-certified appraiser in Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Massachusetts, Maryland, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Virginia, and Washington, D.C.

Outside of work, Jerod treasures time with his wife and son; the family frequents the historic and natural sites that encompass Philadelphia. Jerod also enjoys mountain biking on local trails throughout the Brandywine Valley, as well as dirt-bike riding on trips to West Virginia. Jerod also loves to fish, trekking out to waterways throughout the Mid-Atlantic and southern United States.
