A former Starbucks veteran will help the OYO Hotels & Homes strengthen its focus on corporate governance at multiple levels. The company announced the appointment of Troy Alstead as an independent member of the company’s board of directors.
As an independent member of OYO, Troy will play a supervisory role and provide guidance to the founder and to management on key business decisions. His depth of experience in operations, financial management, business resilience planning, and growth cycle management will strengthen the company’s ability to deliver on sustainable growth, operational and service excellence, and help to continue building a strong culture of corporate governance.
His experience from the ground-up in building the solid foundations of Starbucks through 24 years of dedicated service to the company, having most recently served as chief operating officer (responsible for leading the global operations of the business and its family of brands around the world), is a treasure-trove of knowledge and business resilience.
Alstead is also the founder, president and CEO of Ocean5, a unique new place for playing, meeting, and dining, and Table 47, a new farm-to-table establishment with fresh from scratch menu items in the restaurant in Gig Harbor, Washington.
