The portfolio has boasted over 35 hotels, 25 restaurants and 5 other businesses, and has been the recipient of several prestigious awards in the industry, including Top 50 Best Employers in Canada and the Pinnacle Award for Regional Hotel Company of the Year via Hotelier Magazine in 2013. Ryan was also nominated and selected as a Prairies finalist for the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award, in the category of Business-to-consumer Products and Services in 2012 based on his successful and strategic leadership of the portfolio.
