Summit Hotel Properties – July 30, 2015 Lead Director of the Board Summit Hotel Properties, Inc. 12600 Hill Country Boulevard Suite R-100 Austin, Texas 78738 Dear Bjorn, (August 3rd, 2015)
I have greatly enjoyed working with the management team since founding the company 24 years ago, and watching it grow since our initial public offering in February of 2011. The company is in great hands with a bright future and I think the timing is right for me to commit full time to my private business interests. Therefore, I am resigning as Executive Chairman of the Board of Summit Hotel Properties, Inc. effective as of July 30, 2015. I wish Summit, its management team and my former colleagues on the Board of Directors continued success in the future.
