Bill Brewer
WEST PALM BEACH, FL — Chatham Lodging Trust (NYSE: CLDT), a lodging real estate investment trust (REIT) that invests in upscale, extended-stay hotels and premium-branded, select-service hotels and owns 133 hotels wholly or through joint ventures, announced the appointment of Bill Brewer to the company's board of trustees, effective immediately.

 Mr. Brewer will serve as an independent director and chair the audit committee. He replaces Glen Gilbert who passed away.

"Glen was a valued member of our board of trustees since our 2010 IPO, and we are grateful to him for his outstanding service and commitment to Chatham Lodging Trust,” said Jeffrey H. Fisher, Chatham’s chief executive officer. 

Mr. Brewer is executive vice president, chief financial officer and treasurer of Education Realty Trust (NYSE: EDR), one of America's largest owners, developers and managers of student housing real estate.

Before joining EdR, he served as executive vice president and chief financial officer for Sedgwick Claims Management Services, Inc., the leading provider of technology-enabled claims and productivity management solutions.

Mr. Brewer began and spent the majority of his career at PricewaterhouseCoopers where he rose to partner with a client base focused on public and private real estate investment trusts, primarily in lodging.

“Bill brings tremendous REIT experience given his current role at EdR and his involvement servicing many of the hotel REITs throughout his career at PwC dating back to the 1990’s when many of the initial lodging REITs became publicly traded.

"We are confident that Bill’s financial expertise will contribute greatly to our board and management team,” Fisher emphasized.
