Hermantown-based Hospitality Investors, which owns a dozen hotels in the region, has changed its name to IGO Legacy Hotel Group.
The company’s holdings include the Country Inn & Suites in Hermantown and the AmericInn in Proctor.
Cheryl Goldberg, a company spokeswoman, announced the name change to staff at a managers’ meeting in San Francisco. She rolled out a new logo and the company’s plans for a new website.
The name change became official on May 19.
According to Goldberg, the new name better reflects the company’s emerging new culture - one focused on providing memorable guest experiences, the personal growth of each employee and helping to improve the communities it serves.
“We realized that what the partners are doing, and want to do, is more than just ‘investing,’ ” a company news release said. “We realized we are not just building a business. The partners of IGO Legacy Hotel Group want to build something that will last, something that will continue to have an impact on the people that have worked within this family of hotels, and the communities they have committed to.”
The company owners are Dave Goldberg and Cheryl Goldberg of Duluth, Mike Ives of Grand Rapids and Willard Ogren of Iron River.
The group’s other hotels are Country Inn & Suites in Shoreview, Baxter and Walker, Minn.; Ames, Grinnell and Coralville, Iowa; and Green Bay, Wis. IGO also owns AmericInns in Ames, Iowa, and Menominee, Mich., and the Baymont Inn & Suites in Marshfield, Wis.
