Chief Financial Officer

Robert is responsible for all financial services provided to each property, as well as accounting for the management company. You can just think of him as the money guy. Princess Hotels International, The Palm Springs Marquis, International Conference Resorts, and Graciela Hotels and Resorts have all had the privilege to call Robert their Controller. Robert transcends the conventional financial/accounting department stereotypes and is able to effectively communicate with owners and corporate officers without boring them to death, an instrumental ability he has utilized throughout his career. He graduated from Cal Poly Pomona with a degree in business and a legendary penchant for pranks, earning him the moniker, Ol’ Shenanigans Rycroft.
