Newly created position marks positive expansion of hotel brand.

SIXTY Collective, the company formed in 2013 by Brothers Jason Pomeranc, Michael Pomeranc, Lawrence Pomeranc, and long-time collaborator Stephen Brandman committed to creating 360-degree cultural experiences in hospitality environments, announced the appointment of Jim Biggar as President of their SIXTY Hotels brand of properties, currently in New York, Los Angeles and Miami. The newly created position marks a positive step towards the company’s expansion plans of the luxury lifestyle hotel company which debuted in early 2014.

In his new role, Biggar will oversee the day-to day operations together with the revenue and financial growth of SIXTY Hotels, and will lead the company into the next phase of its expansion as the brand opens Nautilus, a SIXTY Hotel in Miami this July and the development of SIXTY Montreal in late 2016.

“We are delighted to announce the appointment of Jim Biggar to the newly created position of President of SIXTY Hotels” say Stephen Brandman, co-owner of SIXTY Collective. “This new role further strengthens our expertise, and allows my partners and I to focus on the future growth of the SIXTY Hotel’s brand and other projects for SIXTY collective.”

Biggar joins SIXTY Hotels with over 30 years’ experience in major markets worldwide working with more than 20 well-known brands such as Marriott, Starwood, Hilton, Hard Rock International and IHG, and 25 independently branded hotels. Most recently, he spent the last three years as the Executive Vice President, North America for Interstate Hotels and Resorts; the leading US-based global hotel management company, where he established their core operating principals for over 439 hotels around the world. The seasoned hotelier has also led numerous industry councils throughout his career, and is known for his solid track record in building high performance teams.

Michael Pomeranc, co-owner of SIXTY Collective says, “Jim’s wealth of experience in customer service and staff development is exactly want we need to enhance our service culture. He is a great addition to the company, and we believe he will help us take SIXTY Hotels into the next phase of our development.

Partnering with his brothers Michael and Lawrence, and long-time collaborator Stephen Brandman, Jason Pomeranc has assembled a team of talented professionals to realize his next incarnation, SIXTY Collective, following the sale of the group’s interests in Commune Hotels & Resorts and Thompson Hotels in 2013.

SIXTY Collective is a new company committed to creating a 360-degree cultural experience in hospitality environments. In 2014, the collective launched the new luxury lifestyle brand – SIXTY Hotels. The four co-owners’ collective wealth of experience comes from numerous successful real estate and hotel projects; including Pomeranc’s debut property, rebranded as SIXTY SoHo, a project which pioneered the luxury boutique hotel sector in SoHo when it opened during the Fall of September 2001. Now, as SIXTY Collective, Jason Pomeranc serves as Co-Owner and Creative Director. Together with his partners, Jason applies their unique vision and innate cultural sensibility to the development of provocative and cutting edge experiences within the global landscape of lifestyle hotels.

SIXTY Hotels is a collective of singularly iconoclastic luxury lodgings based in New York City and Los Angeles with Nautilus – a SIXTY Hotel opening in Miami in 2015 and SIXTY Montreal opening in late 2016. Opting to draw inspiration from our unique urban backdrops, to establish distinct rhythms in service and experience, SIXTY Hotels’ directive is quite simply to inspire and comfort our guests. No longer is a hotel just a bed, a bath, and a mini-bar. It is a way of life, emblematic of guests’ personal tastes. Our guests’ are true “artists-in-residence,” at home to make their experience their own canvas. In our carefully curated inns, lodgers-in-residence can expect a distinguished palette, artful service and comfort in every way. The result is a hospitality group that assures a stay in a SIXTY Hotel will remain with guests long after they’ve checked out.

No vacancy, just inspiration, allowed.
