A jack-of-all-trades, Siddharth Shah has put his powerful hands and creative mind to peaceful and profitable use in leading the charge at the Holiday Inn Fresno Downtown.
A proud alumnus of the University of California, Berkeley, Shah earned his bachelor’s degree in marketing & communications in 2008. With a personal belief that life is lived in the details, he’s built a career distilling complex information down to its core essence and making it simple to use and understand.
Shah’s professional career began with a boutique brand + talent management consultancy, where he used his business acumen to create and execute campaigns for high powered brands across the NBA, MLG (gaming), fashion, and entertainment industries.
In 2010, he decided to join family business as they assumed ownership of the Holiday Inn Fresno Downtown. Shah’s employment at the hotel has allowed him the opportunity to develop a wide array of skills in managing people, projects, and the non-stop action that is the hospitality industry.
He has also been a pivotal part of the hotel’s growth by creating and expanding relations with the City of Fresno, Fresno CVB, Fresno Grizzlies, Craig School of Business, the Downtown Fresno Partnership, Fresno’s Leading Young Professionals, and various other local organizations.
Though still very active in the hotel, Shah has begun his next venture as an independent consultant supporting local businesses to grow their brand.
