G6 Hospitality, the Carrollton-based parent company of Motel 6 and Studio 6 brands in the U.S. and Canada, announced that Julie Arrowsmith, its president and CFO, has been appointed president and interim chief executive officer.
The company said that Rob Palleschi has stepped down as CEO as he transitions to the position of chief executive officer of American Campus Communities, the nation’s premier student housing manager, owner, and developer.
“It is a privilege to take on this additional responsibility as we position G6 for continued growth,” Arrowsmith said in a statement. “We have an incredibly strong team in place across the organization, and I look forward to continuing our work to support our franchise partners and deliver exceptional value for our guests.”
Arrowsmith has served in various leadership positions across the G6 organization over her 28-year career. As president and CFO, she has been responsible for all finance and revenue-driving efforts, including the oversight of the revenue management, sales, and e-commerce departments.
As he departs, Palleschi said he’s confident the G6 will flourish moving forward.
“It has been a great honor to be CEO of G6 for the last five years,” Palleschi said in a statement. “I want to express my gratitude to our dedicated team members, talented management team and valued franchisees across the nation for their tremendous contributions to G6. With Julie’s energy, commitment to G6’s values and nearly three decades as part of the G6 team, I could not be more confident in the company’s next chapter.”
Arrowsmith has held various leadership roles with increasing responsibility since joining the Motel 6 and Studio 6 brands in 1995. Prior to joining G6, she worked in the audit team at Deloitte.
