BHAVESH PATEL a.k.a. "Bo"
EVP/Operations

Bo is a finance guy with a creative marketing soul. He uses both sides of his brain - right and left - to their utmost fullest potential. His favorite projects are all related to building better mousetraps - the innovative tools that Evolution Hospitality's corporate and field teams use to make decisions every day. Bo enjoys collaborating with other disciplines and departments, working as a team to improve efficiency by eliminating redundancies through technology. He believes his job is to build business partnerships that create revenue, instead of being responsible for simply counting cash.

Music is Bo's life. He has over 13,000 perfectly catalogued music downloads and attends five to 10 concerts on average each year, often accompanied by his wife and two daughters. His family has been exposed to all genres of music - from '80s rock 'n' roll, to classical, to hip hop. They also share Bo's competitive spirit and are Lakers basketball fanatics. Bo fully embraces the work/life culture at Evolution Hospitality that encourages every employee to be the same individual both personally and professionally.

Bo's favorite Guiding Principle is "Make it better than it was before." In Bo's mind there are limitless opportunities to improve the process, so think outside the box, dream big, and make it happen.
