Meet the Team

Ravi Patel, CHA

In 1983 my parents purchased their first motel in Fort Covington, New York and that is where I began my life in the hospitality industry.  Today, with more than 30 years of experience operating hotels under various brands I am now in a dedicated role as General Manager of Holiday Inn Express & Suites Woodstock South, which is a Vibrant Hospitality managed asset.

Shankar Nallathamby, CHA

I grew up in England, and then moved to Canada back in 1993. That is when I stepped into the eclectic industry of hospitality. I started my first job with a Wyndham brand property, then I continued to work with Hilton, Marriott, Choice & IHG.  I now manage a full service hotel, Best Western Plus Toronto North and I oversee multi-properties that belong to various brands.


With over 21 years of experience in the hospitality industry I have fulfilled my passion in life, which has always been to help the people around me. I have a great track record of success in both single and multi unit hotel management at the 3-5 Star level. Besides day to day hotel operations, I have a strong focus on the capital for multi-brand hotels and bring a dynamic, door always open, hands on leadership style. By dealing with various unique brands, my main goal is to deliver exceptional service and give hoteliers exactly what they are looking for. I implement productivity, service excellence and bottom line results. In addition to being in the hotel industry, I owned a fine-dining restaurant with a banquet hall for over 10 years which was awarded with “Best Gourmet Taste & Presentation” from the City of Toronto. I took pride in my restaurant business therefore I know how to mentor other business owners in the right direction. My consulting provides advice and knowledge that people are seeking and it is an exceptionally rewarding experience for both the client and myself.

As a hotelier for the past 25 years, I have worked for large hotel corporations such as Wyndham & Choice.  Currently, I am managing LaQuinta & Riverside Resort with a focus on day to day hotel operations. I bring  unique skills and expertise in strategic development and management. I excel in turning around hotels that are struggling to maintain market share into market leaders.


I have positively impacted the growth and profitability of various hotels and private membership clubs in Canada and abroad, and have all of the aptitude required to produce award winning properties.
