MIAMI, FL -- LEÓN, MAYER & Co. (LM), a Miami based private equity and investment banking firm, announced that hotel industry veteran Geoff Davis has joined the firm as a partner and chief investment officer in charge of its hotel investment strategy. Davis will lead the company’s recently opened office in Denver, Colo.

In his new role, Davis will oversee hotel investments on behalf of LM both domestically and worldwide.

He has been a successful hotel investor and is regarded as one of the top investment professionals in the hospitality sector.

“The addition of Geoff to our senior team is a significant step as we continue to build our hospitality private equity practice,” said Benjamin Mayer, co-Founder and managing partner.  “Geoff’s experience spans multiple cycles and multiple facets within the hospitality sector, including acquisitions and development, management and brokerage.  His successful track record in investing, as well as business building, makes him the ideal addition to the LM team.”
