The Midas organization has hired Marc Connor as the new chief experience officer, in charge of homogenizing and advancing the group’s culture. Connor will lead the planning, marketing and branding, as well as charitable efforts. He will also be responsible for hiring and retaining key employees.  

Prior to joining Midas, Connor was managing director with Build-A-Bear Workshop, where he was responsible for marketing operations, brand management, media and communications.

The Midas group consists of four affiliated companies: Midas Hospitality, Midas Capital, Midas Development and MC Hotel Construction. Midas Hospitality, which manages more than 40 hotels in 14 states—including the dual-branded Courtyard and Residence Inn hotel in Charlotte, N.C.—was founded in 2006, being the one to pave the way for the other companies. The latest one was Midas Capital, which started to raise capital for hotel investment in 2018.
