Terry Donovan


Executive Vice President | New York


Terry has worked in many facets of the hospitality business and gained in-depth experience in food and beverage operations, both in front and back of house capacities. Having helped various new F&B businesses to get up-and-running, putting in place standards and operating procedures while also training staff, he has most recently formed part of the opening team at a restaurant in New York City. Terry subsequently took the decision to capitalize on his operational knowledge and experience in managing teams with a view to kick-starting a career in HR consulting. Since joining AETHOS™ in 2015, Terry has worked extensively with hotel ownership groups to build operational teams up and down the organizational chart. He has also carved a niche for himself in assisting investment firms and private equity houses to establish stronger hotel real estate and asset management teams. Technology-functions have equally become more frequently demanded by the clientele he works with. Terry graduated from Syracuse University and received his MBA from Mercy College in Manhattan.
