Roger Copas

Regional Director of Operations at Texas Western Hospitality

Roger began his career in the hospitality industry with Marriott Hotels over 26 years ago in San Antonio, Texas. Beginning as an hourly associate, he worked his way up to the front office while maintaining his college studies. He’s definitely an over-achiever (but the good kind).

Afterwards, Roger held various management positions at Marriott properties in Washington, DC and Baltimore, MD. Feeling the need to return to Texas, Roger accepted a position with Dallas Marriott Quorum as Director of Services before transitioning to his next role as GM of Springhill Suites in Arlington, TX. However, when the opportunity arose, he accepted the position as GM of the new Convention Center Springhill Suites in New Orleans, LA. One can only assume he got his Texas “fix” and was ready to keep moving. Shortly after Hurricane Katrina, Roger became Dual General Manager of the New Orleans Metairie Courtyard and Residence Inn.

In 2009, Roger joined Texas Western Hospitality as the General Manager of Hilton Waco and in March 2011, he was promoted to the Regional Director of Operations.
