Spark GHC Announces Executive Appointments

Spark GHC makes executive appointments for numerous roles, including CEO and President, post sizable growth in 2023 and before the launch of its upcoming fund II in mid-2024.

CLEVELAND, March 14, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Spark GHC, a minority owned, U.S. focused private real estate firm, announced today that it has made a slate of executive appointments for key leadership roles post a highly successful 2023 which saw the firm acquire $120 million in hospitality assets and before the launch of its latest fund, Spark GHC Hospitality II, in mid-2024.

Key appointments to note are:

Amit Patel, Chief Executive Officer

Saagar Parikh, President & Chief Investment Officer

Bhavin Patel, Chief Strategy Officer & Head of External Affairs

Bhavesh Lad, Chief Operating Officer & Head of Asset Management

Newly appointed CEO Amit Patel noted: “I would like to thank my co-founders and Principals of Spark GHC for entrusting me as we continue to grow this company into the pre-eminent hospitality real estate firm in North America. The past 15 months were just the start for us as we acquired 8 select service and extended stay hospitality assets spread across the U.S. Midwest and U.S. East coast. We are working diligently to launch our latest fund, Spark GHC Hospitality II, in mid-2024.”

Newly appointed President & CIO Saagar Parikh noted: “We are steadfast on acquiring value-add hospitality assets through 2025. We believe there remains a sizable discount in private asset values (over publicly traded assets) due to today’s debt markets. Spark GHC is the right buyer because of our experienced team, access to debt, and ability to execute.”
