Solid Foundation in Economy Lodging

The visionary team behind My Place Hotels of America has been
involved in nearly every aspect of the hotel business for almost 40
years. My Place Co-Founder, Chairman and CEO Ron Rivett co-founded Super
8 Motels Inc. in Aberdeen, South Dakota in 1974, along with long-time
friend Dennis Brown. After selling the wildly successful Super 8 Motel
System in 1993, Ron remained in the hotel business, developing, building
and operating Super 8 motels and other branded properties as a
franchisee until 2011.

On the heels of major economic recession it became apparent to Ron that
the original Super 8 philosophy of ''a clean comfortable room for a few
bucks less than the guy next door'' was more relevant than ever. This
time, however, it would be different. In order to meet the needs of
today's individuals, families, workers, and business travelers, this new
hotel would need to be well suited to both short and long-term stays.
It would need to be clean and comfortable with modern amenities, and all
at an affordable price. And so the My Place Hotels of America concept
was born.

Ron's grandson and My Place Co-Founder, President & COO Ryan
Rivett has grown up in the hotel business, and has learned it from every
angle. Since graduating from Northern State University in Aberdeen,
Ryan has been extensively involved in all facets of both the hotel and
multifamily apartment business, from design and development to
financing, construction, and management. Ryan's first-hand experience in
both industries provides a unique perspective on the economy extended
stay hotel concept that has become My Place Hotels of America.
