Raines, formerly known as Raines Hospitality, has rebranded, expanded service offerings and added new executives. The relaunch includes a new website, an updated visual identity, a new overarching brand name and two new business divisions: Array and Woven.
“A primary goal of this brand launch and overhaul was for Raines to achieve greater volume and scale, allowing for maximum effectiveness and efficiency within our development and operations,” said Grey Raines, managing partner of the company. “We are looking forward to expanding our footprint to encompass more than just hospitality, for which we’ve been known in the past.”
Managing Partner David Tart added, “Our team will continue to do what we do every day—effectively develop and manage the leading hotels in the markets where we work. The biggest new ‘change’ is our direction and opportunity for growth. Despite the current challenges in our industry, it is an exciting time to be part of Raines.”
The hospitality management, development and investment group has 19 hotels and 1,858 keys throughout the Southeast.
