Benjamin West Opens Office in Miami to Serve Latin America

 MIAMI, FL and BOULDER, CO,  Feb. 28, 2012—In response to the rapid growth in hotel development in Latin America and the Caribbean, Benjamin West, the hotel industry’s largest global purchasing firm for furniture, fixtures and equipment (FF&E) and operating supplies and equipment (OS&E), today announced that the company will open a new office in Miami.

 The new operation will be led by Liliane Stacishin-Moura (top right photo), who has joined the company as Director-Latin America & Caribbean. 

The new office brings to six the number of locations the company has opened to serve its clients worldwide.  In 2011, Benjamin West worked on projects in 23 countries on four continents. 

“Latin America has reached the tipping point of hotel development, with international and regional brands, as well as independents, ramping up to serve these rapidly growing economies,” said Alan Benjamin (middle left photo), president of Benjamin West.

 “According to Lodging Econometrics, three of the top 20 development markets—Brazil, Mexico and Argentina--are in that region.  All but one country has shown quarter-over- quarter improvements in the development pipeline since the bottom of the cycle in late 2009.

“ Renovations, which were delayed because of the economy, have been accelerating since the recovery began in the region in 2010.    Chile and Columbia have great potential and the Caribbean’s primary economic driver is tourism which requires on-going investment to introduce new product and upgrading existing hotels." 
 Stacishin-Moura, a Brazilian native and educated in the U.S., has an extensive background in design and real estate development, as well as environmental science.

  Prior to joining Benjamin West, she was founder and partner in Find Development Resources International headquartered in Los Cabos, Mexico.  She led the company’s international business development, brokering and financing for the company’s hospitality and retail segments.
