HISTORY

Drawing inspiration from our origins in 1972 as Beck Hospitality, our founder, Louis Beck, grew our team from a small Cincinnati-based hotel construction firm into a national hotel ownership and management company with a portfolio of over 30 hotel properties. Following a reverse merger in 1997, the newly named company went public as Janus Hotels & Resorts (NASDAQ: JAGI) before going private seven years later in 2004.
