Tracy L. Prigmore has been appointed to the Board of Directors of Castell Project Inc., a 501(c) nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating the careers of women professionals in the hospitality industry. Prigmore is recognised for expanding TLTsolutions in 2014 to create opportunities for individuals, families and entities to obtain passive income by investing in residential, multifamily and hospitality projects. The firm has a multi-million-dollar portfolio of real estate assets under management in four states. She also began the “She Has A Deal” platform in 2019.
The competition has been designed to create new pathways to hotel ownership and development for women by providing education, networking and investing opportunities. Its renowned pitch challenge creates a pipeline of women hotel owners and developers by exposing early career women to hotel ownership and development. Prior to entering real estate development industry, Prigmore spent 25 years as a healthcare executive and held senior leadership roles in strategic planning, business development and operations for three of the nation’s largest healthcare systems.
Peggy Berg, Chair, Castell Project, Inc said in a statement that with Tracy’s strategic expertise and additional insights into some of the issues affecting minority women, she is an ideal addition to the Board as it works to expand gender equality throughout the industry. She mentioned that from founding TLTsolutions, the real estate and development firm that focuses on building new, generational wealth, to launching ‘She Has a Deal,’ a program for creating new, female hoteliers, Tracy’s work advancing gender and minority representation within the hospitality industry already is well known.
Prigmore added speaking about her appointment that having long advocated for the advancement of gender and racial equality within the workplace, she is looking forward to work with the talented Board of Directors to further promote such causes. She also shared that she passionately believes that equality is a foundational component for a successful business in virtually all industries, but especially so within hospitality, where women make up 58.7 percent of the workforce, but only 7.1 of the executive team. She stated that it is challenging to break through the status quo, and she is always up for a good challenge.
