NYU International Hospitality Industry Investment Conference - Chair and Committee

Jonathan M. Tisch

Co-Chairman of the Board and Office of the President, Loews Corporation; Chairman, Loews Hotels & Resorts

Jonathan M. Tisch is co-chairman of the board and a member of the Office of the President of Loews Corporation, one of the largest diversified financial holding companies in the U.S., and is chairman of its subsidiary, Loews Hotels & Resorts.

During his tenure as CEO, Tisch engineered the company's expansion and emergence as a leading luxury hotel brand by infusing the properties with a widely praised corporate culture that places a high value on partnerships that empower employees, satisfy customers, contribute to communities, and improve the bottom line.

Believing you can do well and good at the same time, Tisch is a champion of corporate responsibility and active citizenship. He initiated the Loews Hotels Good Neighbor Policy, a recipient of the U.S. President's Service Award, 25 years ago. He is the naming benefactor of the Jonathan M. Tisch College of Citizenship and Public Service at Tufts University, where he is also vice chair of the Board of Trustees.

Tisch is the author of three best-selling books: The Power of We: Succeeding through Partnerships; Chocolates on the Pillow Aren't Enough: Reinventing the Customer Experience; and Citizen You: Doing Your Part to Change the World. He hosted the Emmy-nominated and Gracie Award-winning television series Beyond the Boardroom with Jonathan Tisch, where he spoke with some of America's preeminent business luminaries.

Nationally recognized as a leader in the multi-billion dollar travel and tourism industry, he founded and served as chairman of the Travel Business Roundtable, and now serves as chairman emeritus of the United States Travel Association. Tisch is committed to a vibrant tourism industry in NYC, where for nearly six years he served as chairman of NYC & Company.  In recognition of his leadership, Crain’s New York Business named him one of the inaugural members of their Hall of Fame, which recognizes individuals who have transformed the City in both their professional work and in their civic and philanthropic activities. Crain's had previously named Tisch one of the "Top Ten Most Influential Business Leaders."

Tisch is a co-owner of the New York Football Giants and was instrumental in bringing the 2014 Super Bowl to the metropolitan area. He served as co-chair of the NY/NJ Super Bowl Host Committee. This is Tisch's twenty-second year as conference chair.

The University is grateful for the efforts of the Executive Planning Committee and for the financial contributions made by the conference patrons and sponsors. These contributions assure the quality, enhancement, and continuation of the conference, as well as support hospitality and tourism students at NYU.
