Truly one of the greats of the hospitality industry, Bill Swoboda was revered and respected by all who met him. Over the course of 52 years Bill Swoboda built a tradition of serving clients through honest dealing, high integrity and helping others by bringing them together in transactions that addressed mutual needs.
Founded in 1954, Bill Swoboda’s hospitality brokerage company remains one of the most active in the industry. As part of his industry leadership Bill served as one of the seven founding members of the Hotel & Motel Brokers of America, the original hotel real estate trade association which today has become Hotel Brokers International.
Following his death, his widow and partner, Mori Swoboda, identified William Meinhold, president of Hospitality Specialist, to carry on the company in the tradition Bill established.
“Bill and William cooperated on several transactions and found great satisfaction working together because each held the same high standards and desire to help others achieve their goals,” says Mori Swoboda.
