Some Of My Media Experience


Need A Hospitality Industry Expert Source Quickly?


Let me know and I’ll get on it!

All urgent media inquiries should be made to: Jeffrey Summers +1-855-744-4677  Or email Jeffrey using the form below.

All calls are returned in less than 90 minutes. I want to be your source for all things hospitality.

If you’re a reporter seeking an intelligent, knowledgeable and trusted source for hospitality industry pieces, you should look no further than myself. I have been a go-to hospitality industry expert for over four decades, providing in-depth analysis, story ideas, statistics and a seasoned perspective to some of the top news outlets worldwide, including Fortune, Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, Smart Money, The New York Times, USA Today, Entrepreneur Magazine and many more equally admired news and business organizations worldwide.

I am an experienced and trusted hospitality consultant.  I have a very unique insight on the hospitality industry and bring a high degree of dynamic, passionate and successful experience to help add color and give context to any industry-related story you may be working on.

I am extremely personable, comfortable in front of a camera and experienced in conveying complex information to the general public. I understand the urgency of deadlines (given my training in journalism), especially in the digital age. Give me an idea of the questions you’re looking to have answered so I can start working on providing you with the appropriate background,  insight and analysis.

Need some ideas? If you don’t have a specific story or tight deadline but cover the business/hotel/retail, marketing or business beat, contact me anyway to brainstorm some unique story ideas.

And if I can’t help, I’ll help you find a source that can.  My job is to make your job easier. I am happy to be quoted, but that’s not the motivation. My motivation is to extend my hospitality – it’s in my blood. If I or a client of mine is not a fit for your story, I will put my team to work for you to find someone that is – it’s the right thing to do and I’d love to earn your top-of-mind awareness.
