Jonas has over 25 years of experience in international hotel consulting and luxury operations. As a Miami-based Senior Vice President at hotelAVE, he supports investors, developers, operators, as well as brands with diverse mandates, including the development of market-entry, product, and corporate strategies, commercial diligence, financial modeling, mixed-use facility programming, and litigation support. Jonas also supports hotelAVE’s asset-management team with a focus on upper-upscale and luxury properties in Florida, Mexico, and the Caribbean.
Prior to joining hotelAVE, Jonas was a Director in the Hospitality & Leisure Consulting practice of PricewaterhouseCoopers. During his tenure at PwC, he executed a wide array of engagements across the lodging, resort-residential, condo hotel, leisure amenity, and cruise sectors in North, Central, and South America, as well as the Caribbean.
Jonas’ hotel-advisory expertise extends across most chain scales (with particular emphasis on upper-upscale and luxury), the all-inclusive operating model, extended stay, and lifestyle, themed, and soft-branded concepts.
Previously, he held property-level management roles with luxury hotels in the U.S. and Europe, advised several hotel pre-opening teams, and worked in the Global Strategic Planning group of a Fortune 100 company.
Jonas frequently moderates panels at hotel-investment conferences and is fluent in English, Spanish, and German.
“Deep hotel asset-management and advisory expertise, combined with our own acquisitions and ownership track record, sets the hotelAVE team apart.”
