Tim Nardi was appointed to the MBVCA in February 2014 and has been a dedicated and active leader in the Miami Beach hospitality industry for more than two decades. In October 2012, Mr. Nardi joined Starwood Capital as Managing Director of 1 Hotel & Homes South Beach, the flagship of a new brand of eco-conscious and nature-inspired hotels from the creator of W Hotels. 1 Hotel & Homes South Beach will feature 500 of South Beach’s most generously appointed guest rooms and suites, 163 private homes, an astonishing 650 linear feet of pristine beachfront, four pool decks, six on-site restaurants including a new concept from Chef Tom Collichio and the well-known STK, as well as multiple retail outlets.

Prior to joining the 1 Hotel & Homes project, Mr. Nardi was General Manager of two of South Beach’s most iconic hotels - Morgans Hotel Group’s Shore Club and the Eden Roc Renaissance Resort & Spa. Under Mr. Nardi’s leadership, these properties reached excellent levels of performance, achieved the highest levels of guest satisfaction, and received multiple company and industry awards for community service and environmental consciousness.  Before arriving in Dade County in 1992, Mr. Nardi managed notable hotels in Georgia, Colorado and Texas, including opening the acclaimed Lodge at Beaver Creek, now combined with Vail Resorts.
