What does it mean to be an owner-operator in the context of today’s economic uncertainty? CEO of Fleming’s Hotel Group Filip Blodinger discusses this issue with David in our first episode of the week. He talks about the value of a strong asset portfolio and the difference this makes in reducing complexities with banks and other partners.
Going forward, Filip believes there will be increased focus on the need for financial reserves—whether for individuals, companies, states or governments. He also stresses the importance of a diverse brand portfolio, as he believes different segments of the market will emerge from this crisis at different paces.
