Michael Handy

Vice President, Austin

Consulting Experience

Whether working on a hotel appraisal or feasibility assignment, communicating with clients and officials in the field, or researching an informal article on the dynamics of a hotel market, Michael Handy prizes an attention to detail. A Vice President with the HVS satellite office in Austin, Michael approaches each hotel assignment as if he were purchasing the asset at hand. This focus allows him to gather and deploy every conceivable fact during each aspect of the appraisal process, from fieldwork to analysis. Michael’s keen understanding of demand drivers and other nuances of a particular hotel market also contribute to well-executed, well-supported value conclusions about your hotel.

Michael graduated from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas’ William F. Harrah School of Hospitality Management. Frontline experience at several acclaimed hotels has afforded Michael a familiarity with the operational end of the hotel business, a perspective he brings to every hotel assignment with HVS.

In his free time, Michael takes to the outdoors by golfing, hiking, and mountain biking, physical exertions that also challenge the mind’s capacity for concentration and strategy.
