Hospitality Management Company | Horizon Hotels Limited, 30 Jan 2016 [cached]
Founded in 1976 by Stanley Cox and his daughter, Cynthia Cox Olcott, our hospitality management company has built its reputation on a hands-on, results-oriented management style, as well as an ability to "think out of the box" to create profitable projects tailored to the location and market.

Ms. Cynthia Cox Olcott is co-owner of the company, and directs the property operations system-wide. She also serves as the primary liaison and contact for all hotel franchises. One of the company's early projects was the development of the Arrowwood Conference Center & Hotel in Rye Brook (Westchester), New York with Citibank. Ms. Olcott was involved in the pre-opening and design stages of this very successful project, and she is currently a member of the Doral Arrowwood Management Oversight Committee. In 1992, Ms. Olcott was appointed Vice President and Director of Operations & Development-West Coast, and in 1995 she was appointed President and Chief Operating Officer. Ms. Olcott works closely with property owners and asset managers to determine and direct priorities for each property, adopting an ownership mentality in all her analysis and decision-making.

Cindy Olcott, President"You're kidding!"exclaims Cindy Olcott, "at least twenty times a day."Her days are, "always exciting, unpredictable and diverse, " she says, serving as President and CEO of Horizon Hotels, Ltd, a company which she co-founded with her father, Mr. Stanley Cox in 1976.
"I like people," she says."In the hotel business there is such an opportunity to meet so many different types of people, you just never know.I like the clients, the hotels, all of it."
Cindy Olcott is one of the few women in the industry who runs an independently owned management company and one of the only women owned hotel businesses certified by the "Women's Business Enterprise National Council," as an official "Women's Business Enterprise."
Horizon Hotels Limited, is one of the largest hotel management companies in the United States.The company handles all aspects of hotel, conference center and resort management- sales and marketing, food and beverage, accounting/financial reports, human resources, engineering, purchasing and operations for its portfolio of over 30 properties.
According to Stanley E. Cox, Founder and Chairman of Horizon Hotels, Ltd, "I called Cindy, the oldest of my three daughters, who has been following me around for 20 years and told her, 'I know you will get paid the first week and probably the second week, but the third week I am not sure about, and then asked if she wanted to join me'.
Ms. Olcott was involved on a weekly basis in the pre-opening and design/development stages of the project and continues today to guide the strategic plan for the facility as a member of the Management Oversight Committee that meets monthly.
"It hasn't been easy to stay independent, but our reputation helped us to do that," says Olcott.Maintaining their independence over the years has been a source of pride."Today, it is becoming harder for an independent to compete, with financial institutions forcing you into the flags in order to get financing," she says.
"Working with Cindy allowed me to effectively do my job!"she says."She was always professional, accessible and knowledgeable!"
Horizon Hotels is a family business which includes Olcott's two sisters, brother-in-law, and husband, who began his career in the industry as a chef.They bought their father out during the transition period between 1993-4, but as an active 76 year old, he's still working in the business, as an employee.
According to Mr. Cox, "By 1978 Cindy had become bookkeeper, secretary and public relations representative.
Now, Cindy is running the company better than I ever did."
In 1992, Ms. Olcott was appointed Vice President and Director of Operations & Development and based in Palm Springs, California.In 1994, she returned to the company's corporate office in New Jersey, serving as Senior Vice President while continuing as Director of West Coast Operations.In 1995, she was appointed President and CEO and has directed the operations of the company system-wide from the corporate office in Eatontown, New Jersey.
We chose Horizon Hotels because of the integrity that Cindy and the whole Horizon team brought to the project, and their reputation in the hotel industry.
While being on the cutting edge with technology offerings and spa facilities and keeping up with the competition in these areas is of concern, most important, according to Olcott is, "maintaining the basics."Service is crucial, as is providing a "sense of place" in the environment where the property is situated.A "heavenly bed," is still what a customer wants in their guest room, one that's clean and comfortable," she says.
According to Jeff Heineken, Vice President Sales and Marketing of Horizon, "Cindy has the ability to step back and analyze a situation and make decisions that are in the best interest of our clients.
