ACG June Luncheon Guest Speaker: Sam Friedman, CEO & Founder of Dimension Development Company
    

FOUNDER & CEO

sam-friedman-full

In 1958, Sam Friedman obtained a B.S. degree from Louisiana State University. He went on to graduate from the LSU Law School in 1961. He also served in the U.S. Army and was honorably discharged as a Captain in 1963.

In 1973, Sam Friedman who was then a practicing attorney in Natchitoches, LA, left his practice to develop and operate hotels.
Since that time Sam has developed or participated in the development of more than 40 hotels and has acquired ownership and/or management of an additional 25 hotels over his development career.

Mr. Friedman formed Dimension Development Company in 1988 to develop extended stay hotels and has since grown his company to where today Dimension owns and/or manages 51 hotels in 13 states with hotels being Hilton, Marriott and IHG hotel brands.

Sam has served as President of the International Association of Holiday Inns and continues to serve as the longstanding Chairman of the Homewood Suites Franchise Advisory Board.

Mr. Friedman is the Principal Managing Partner and Asset Manager for The Roosevelt, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New Orleans. Dimension redeveloped this hotel at a budgeted cost of 150 million dollars from the former Fairmont Hotel New Orleans following the significant damage that closed the hotel after the impact of Hurricane Katrina. Dimension also recently completed a major renovation of the Inter Continental Hotel also in New Orleans.

Formerly Mr. Friedman served as Chairman of the Louisiana State University Board of Supervisors and currently is a member of both the LSU Alumni Board and the LSU Foundation.

Sam has played significant roles in the development of Holiday Inn, Residence Inn and Homewood Suites as franchised hotel brands.

Sam resides in Natchitoches, LA, with his spouse Edwina Friedman.

DRIVING GROWTH

THE IMPACT OF MIDDLE-MARKET PRIVATE EQUITY 

ON THE U.S. ECONOMY

Louisiana

Between 2003 and 2014, $6.4 billion in private capital was invested in Louisiana by private capital firms, through 347 deals. Twenty-five investors call the state home, and made 32 of those investments. Louisiana has 310 companies that are still backed by private capital. Of the total deal count, B2B’s portion was 28 percent, energy’s around 24 percent and B2C’s at just more than 14 percent. Energy and B2B overwhelmingly attracted the most capital, at a dominant 80 percent of all capital invested.
