The Hyatt’s foundation in family goes back to 1957, when entrepreneur Jay Pritzker purchased the original Hyatt House motel. Pritzker and his brother, Donald, worked to grow the Hyatt brand, powered by their belief in the importance of family and care. As of September 30, 2016, Hyatt is a global hospitality company with 13 brands and more than 600 properties in more than 50 countries. With more than 100,000 team members across 54 countries, Hyatt embraces all cultures, races, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, ages, abilities, perspectives, and ways of thinking. Hyatt’s culture is one that empowers every individual to be his or her best, and such authentic connection inspires the way it cares for team members and guests.
