Juan Mera got his start in hospitality as a bellman at the Canyon Ranch Resort in Tucson, AZ. From there, he was promoted to night auditor, a desk agent, and finally, front office manager. Mr. Mera then moved on to work for Remington Hotels, where he served as a rooms division manager and sales manager. He then went to work for Meristar Hotels as a rooms manager at the Latham Hotel in Georgetown, and from there, got his first general manager job at the Hampton Inn Atlanta Gwinnett.
Juan joined North Point hospitality in 2004 and has served as the opening general manager at several North Point hotels, including the SpringHill Suites Buckhead Atlanta, Hilton Garden Inn Savannah Midtown, Hilton Garden Inn Nashville Midtown and the Hilton Garden Inn/Homewood Suites Atlanta Midtown, a dual-branded property opened in 2012. Juan has also served as the area general manager where he oversaw the DoubleTree by Hilton Savannah Historic District, the Hilton Garden Inn Savannah Historic District and the Quality Inn Savannah Historic District. He most recently accepted the position as opening general manager for the first tri-branded Marriott hotel in the country, the SpringHill Suites/Residence Inn/AC Hotel by Marriott Nashville Downtown.
From the moment he joined North Point Hospitality, he immediately loved it and the opportunities to open so many hotel projects.
Juan is from Lima, Peru and enjoys traveling as much as he can and spending time with his wife, Harumi, and his family.
