Robert Kot


Chief Financial Officer

“My favorite aspect of working in hospitality is doing my part to help our guests have great events and experiences that lead to great memories.”

Rob first got to know our President, Charles Lagarce, while working as a night auditor and accounting clerk at the Crowne Plaza-Columbus Downtown in the early 1990s. After graduating from The Ohio State University, he spent time with various management companies before returning to Columbus to raise a family.

Once back in Cap City, he reunited with his former boss as Charles began to create Columbus Hospitality Management. He was able to use his experience to establish accounting operations as we launched the company.

After 20 years working with Charles, Rob oversees all accounting functions for the Management Company as well as our individually managed properties.

Rob has been married to his wife, Jennifer, for nearly 18 years. Together they have three children – Sam, Maddy and Adam – and always seem to have two dogs. He spends his spare time running, reading and with his family. You might even catch him relaxing with some music, a good beer and a game of pool.
