RALEIGH, NC-Concord Hospitality Enterprises is approaching the future with confidence. Recently, the company signed contracts to manage 18 hotels and is currently building four and developing five more. President and CEO of Concord Hospitality Mark Laport says that it is part of the company’s “three-pronged growth strategy” of third-party management, joint ventures and wholly-owned properties.
