Hotel management group promotes Sarasota leader

Danika Smith-Josiah will guide general managers within Scarlett Hotel Group in her new position.

A new Sarasota-based vice president has emerged at Scarlett Hotel Group. 

After a few years with the hospitality management firm, Danika Smith-Josiah is the new regional vice president of operations. In her position, she will provide the support, training and guidance necessary for hotel general managers within SHG, which has offices in Chicago and Nashville as well as operates hotels across the U.S. 

“Danika’s perseverance and leadership defied the immense challenges put before her over the course of three years at the Hampton Inn Sarasota Airport.” says Rob Sadoff, principal and co-founder of SHG, in a statement. “Zio, Andrew and I are incredibly grateful for the sacrifices she made during that time in order to keep her team together and push through unimaginable adversity. She truly inspires everyone to be their best selves and we are blessed to have her as a teammate and friend.”

Smith-Josiah gained nearly 10 years of experience in the industry working at InterContinental Hotels Group as a corporate trainer and general manager before finding her way to SHG in 2018. She started off as a general manager before moving up the ranks to director of learning and development.
