This partnership will extend our commitment to Cornell by producing practical knowledge for the hospitality industry," said Rushmore, who with his wife, Judith Rushmore, has endowed a professorial chair in finance and real estate at the Hotel School, among many other valued contributions.

Suzanne R. Mellen, HVS's managing director, will join the Center's advisory board, which helps guide Cornell's senior researchers. "I am very pleased to become a member of the board, and I look forward to working with Cornell's researchers to explore opportunities for research on valuation and other financial models in the industry" Mellen said.
