Jeff Lehman

Jeff Lehman was appointed to the MBVCA in December 2015 and previously served on the Board for 12 of the 21 years he has lived or worked in Miami Beach.  Several of those years he was the Chairperson, helping direct such transformational efforts as the City of Miami Beach’s PR Firm, and the City’s API and visitor’s app.  Although he has been working in the hospitality industry in Miami Beach for the past 21 years, his career in hospitality began 37 years ago.  He is currently Managing Director of the Betsy Hotel, a boutique property in Miami Beach's South Beach.  Recently lauded as the only 4 star 4 diamond boutique hotel in Miami Beach by both Forbes and AAA, he is now overseeing an ambitious $50M expansion project there.  Prior to this, he assisted with the restoration of Miami Beach's historic gem, the National Hotel, and was the hotel's General Manager until it was sold in 2007.  His extensive experience in the hotel and cruise industries has included positions in Tahiti, Japan, Hawaii, Seattle, San Francisco, Miami and his hometown, Los Angeles.

He also has served on the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau Boutique Task Force, and has served on the Mayor's Blue Ribbon Task Force on Tourism, the Miami Beach Convention Center Advisory Board, and was the Vice Chair of the Collins Avenue Reconstruction Task Force. In 2007, he was given a “Key to the City” of Miami Beach for his commitment to Community Service, and his current hotel (The Betsy) twice won the Community Service Award from the Greater Miami and the Beaches Hotel Association’s annual “Inn Key Awards”.  In 2009, Mr. Lehman accompanied Mayor Bower and a local delegation on a goodwill journey to our sister city of Fujisawa, Japan, to further this diplomatic and economic relationship.
