Father-son duo Alan and Michael Fuerstman of Montage and Pendry Hotels, respectively, both caught the hospitality bug early. Alan cut his teeth at the Phoenician Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona and the Bellagio in Las Vegas before founding Montage Hotels & Resorts in 2002. Michael, for his part, inherited his dad’s love of hospitality. Beginning his career as the coveted pool boy at the Bellagio, he eventually joined the family business in 2009, where he helped create lifestyle brand Pendry—a natural next step for the hotel company that is responsible for reinventing luxury through a forward-thinking lens.
