January 22, 2018—
Bird Dog Equity Partners, LLC announced that Kyle Schock will join the firm as their newest Partner, effective January 1, 2018.
Kyle will serve as the head of hotel operations as Bird Dog enhances their focus on growing their portfolio of limited service hotel properties in the Upper Midwest.
Kyle comes to Bird Dog from Blue Sage Hospitality, a hotel management company he co-founded with his partner John Pesicka that partnered exclusively with Bird Dog.
Together, Blue Sage and Bird Dog have acquired 5 hotels, involving over $9 million of Bird Dog investor capital. Kyle will continue to work very closely with John, who will remain an active partner in Bird Dog’s hotel portfolio.
We are excited to have Kyle on the team to build a “people-first” culture in Bird Dog’s hotel operations, and to play a key role in developing and nurturing our hotel portfolio in the coming years.
Previously, Kyle served as Sales and Marketing Director for The Prairie Club, a destination golf resort in Valentine, Nebraska and an early Bird Dog/Nordic Venture Partners investment.
While at The Prairie Club, Kyle was instrumental in growing revenue by over 20% annually and received national awards including Best Marketing Campaign in the U.S. by Golf Inc. Magazine.
Kyle graduated Magna cum laude from the University of Sioux Falls with a B.B.A. in Business Finance, where he was a GPAC All-Conference golfer and co-founded the Coo Tycoons Investment Club (an investment club that raised over $100,000 in startup funding).
He loves spending time with his wife Amy, two children, Madelynn and Miles, and is active in many faith-based organizations.
In his spare time, Kyle loves all things outdoors, losing money on used cars, traveling, and playing golf.
