Pete Patel’s experience in the Hotel Industry came before formal studies at Ohio State University, where he majored in Accounting and Economics, a decision fueled by his accounting experience at his family’s hotels when he was younger. Currently, he works as the Director of Finance & Budgets for Kindred Healthcare while overseeing his own hotel investments.
Pete also worked with the Auditor of Public Accounts for the Commonwealth of Kentucky. There, he was responsible for ensuring that public resources were protected and effectively employed to raise the quality of life for all Kentuckians, while adhering to strict compliance with generally accepted standards of auditing.
His experience has attracted investor interest, which has led to partnerships in a Tru by Hilton and a Home2Suites in Louisville, KY. All of his exposure to accounting practices in different work settings positions Pete to positively impact Kvell Hospitality Group and Kvell clients’ accounting and operating budgets. He has the necessary insight into the preparation and presentation of financial statements, the management of auditing and the ability to provide analytic-based decision support.
Pete is enthusiastic about working with Kvell to help empower hotel owners to run an efficient and successful business. Along with his business experience he brings to the company, Pete’s outgoing and friendly attitude make his contributions become indispensable.
