  • Veno Nathraj is a hotel broker in Southern California for HTL Hospitality Advisors. He began his hotel career as a hospitality broker with Marcus & Millichap where he primarily focused on the sale of limited service hotels. He was subsequently responsible for overseeing the Southern California hotel investment banking practice for PKF Investments, an affiliate of PKF Consulting, a national hotel real estate advisory and capital markets company.

    Mr. Nathraj had the privilege of working as one of the lead advisors to the FDIC & RTC in the early 1990’s. This experience provided training in hotel workouts from both an owner and lender perspective including loan restructurings and foreclosures. He has also advised numerous hospitality industry leaders on purchasing distressed first trust deeds and property notes, foreclose procedures and hotel renovation and repositioning to achieve long term capital appreciation.

    Working with developers as well as city municipalities, Mr. Nathraj has developed policies and mandates to increase the standards of hospitality construction and development. Mr. Nathraj has developed and constructed several hotels in the Southern California market over the past two decades and is currently building six limited service hotels in South Africa. This construction experience has allowed him to create and design a unique model for project management in the hospitality industry.

    Mr. Nathraj has an expert view on unique, distressed and under-valued properties. During his career, he has sold numerous full and limited service hotels and resorts including Hampton Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Comfort Inn and Radisson branded properties. Mr. Nathraj has very strong community ties with the Asian American Hotel Owners Association and other ethnic groups that invest in hotels and motels nationwide.

    Mr. Nathraj is a licensed real estate broker and has over 30 years of experience in the hospitality industry. His expertise includes hotel real estate and mortgage brokerage, construction of hospitality assets and the operation of multiple properties. He currently consults and advises groups such as Casa Hotels and Hampshire Hotel South Africa, in construction, acquisition, disposition and operations of their hotel portfolio.
