President & Chief Executive Officer


It’s about being who I am, being human, open, willing to debate. Then I can make the most informed decisions possible.

  • SSP Founding Partner
  • 30-year career in executive sales & marketing leadership roles
  • Strong focus on revenue growth

Bill Scanlon founded SSP in 2007 with more than 25 years in sales and marketing leadership and corporate roles for the hospitality industry and a well-honed point of view for achieving success. A what-you-see-is-what-you-get leader, Bill joins each client as a partner, channeling the individual attitudes and culture of each company while remaining true to his own vision. A part of the team definitely, but Bill is the one who steps back a bit to process every bit of information that comes his way. The result… an understated, yet highly realized and  powerful plan of action focused on success in every sense of the word.

Bill began his career in the hospitality industry with Marriott and spent 20 years moving through a series of progressive assignments on a regional, national and international level culminating with a role as Vice-President Caribbean, Central and South Americas. Following, his tenure as Senior Vice-President of Sales & Marketing at HEI Hotels and Resorts and a consulting assignment with Wyndham Worldwide led to a position with Hotel Group as their Senior Vice-President of Sales and Marketing where he spent 2.5 years growing revenue for their $1.5B portfolio of companies.
