During his tenure at A&M Mr. Bremont has advised public entities, multinational development companies,

Mr. Bremont’s notable assignments include his participation in the interim management of an 8,000-acre,

in the independent/boutique hotel segment with combined portfolio revenues of approximately $1.4 billion; the
