Ramesh C. Patel

Mr. Ramesh Patel started his first major hotel project by constructing and opening the Comfort Inn South in Garner, North Carolina in 1992. Following its success, Mr. Patel developed and opened two more properties in 1998, the Comfort Suites RTP/RDU in Durham, North Carolina and the Hampton Inn in Mebane, North Carolina. At that time, Parks Hospitality Group was formed to effectively manage the operations of all three hotel properties.

Although Mr. Patel’s educational background is in Mechanical Engineering with notable work in the largest nuclear power plants in the US, his tenure’s focus was in the hospitality industry – in developing, managing, and effectively operating franchised hotels.
