"Mac's financial experience within the hospitality industry is extensive," said Dale McFarland, president and chief operating officer of Veracity Hospitality. "His exceptional leadership, proven track record and the professional and personal integrity with which he works and lives by made him the ideal candidate for this role."

Rao has spent the last 26 of his 35-year career in hospitality finance and accounting. Positions included director of finance for KeyLime Cove, a role he will continue to fill; regional controller for eight Waterford hotels; and controller for several different internationally branded hotels and resorts including Radisson, Holiday Inn, Sheraton, and Hilton. Rao holds a master's degree in business management, and two bachelors degrees in economics and finance. He speaks nine different languages.
