US: Aparium Hotel Group has appointed George Prine as general manager of Populus, the US’s first carbon positive hotel.

Opening in Denver this summer, the hotel is carbon positive because it is offsetting both operational and embodied carbon – including the carbon emitted during the creation, transportation, installation, maintenance, and disposal of materials used to build it.

Prine will oversee all day-to-day operations of the hotel, including its operational carbon footprint, revenue management, employee engagement, and the overall guest experience.

He brings 25 years of industry experience to Populus and has previously managed the opening and managing of luxury hotels, from 60 to 800+ rooms.  

Prine also spent four years as general manager of The Armstrong Hotel, a boutique hotel in Fort Collins, Colorado, where he led its redesign renovations, marketing repositioning, and branding.
