About Catalyst | Why Catalyst?

It starts with our team.

Angela Harrington, Catalyst President/CEO has extensive experience in product development, strategic marketing, complex operations management and the direction of extraordinary service teams specifically related to tourism, hospitality and events.  She holds Master Certificates from Cornell University (Ithaca, NY) in Hospitality Operations, Marketing & Revenue Management as well as a BA in Behavioral Science from Metropolitan State University of Denver.  Contagious enthusiasm, tenacity and courage combined with outstanding operations and team leadership skills to achieve extraordinary results.

The executive team, consisting of specialized hospitality industry experts with more than 100 cumulative years of experience, make Catalyst a leader in hospitality management.  Our experts have backgrounds in Food and Beverage, Hotel Operations, Public Relations, Reputation Management, Marketing and Publicity, Event and Group Sales, Revenue Management and Booking Systems, Brand Development and Delivery, Facility and Equipment and Accounting.  Together they have built a reputation of creating top-notch guest experiences and profitable return for hoteliers.


We do the work.  We're not consultants.  We're partners and executors.  From day one, we work with your team in assessing opportunities for growth, developing short term and long-term goals and hit the ground running.  Whether you're developing a new hotel, recently acquired a new property or have owned the property for 20 years, we can help. We're selective in finding the right partners in the right markets. We are exclusive to independently-owned properties within the state of Iowa.  We'll only manage one property in each market; the one that has the most interesting story-the one with the potential to be the city's best, most iconic hotel.
