Orlando, Fla., October 24, 2016 – Hard Rock Cafe International (USA), Inc., one of the world’s leading hospitality companies, announced today that Hamish Dodds, its President and CEO, has decided to step down from his position in early 2017 to pursue new opportunities. The company is wholly owned by the Seminole Tribe of Florida. It has been led by Dodds since 2004.
“It has been an absolute privilege working for Hard Rock over the last 13 years and leading the growth of this amazing brand, while helping to reinforce Hard Rock’s unique character, and its commitment to service and philanthropy. Hard Rock is a place where staff are empowered to deliver authentic guest experiences in a rock and roll environment,” said Dodds. “Today, the business is well positioned with a strong brand footprint and an extensive pipeline of projects in all business units.

Founded in 1993, Grady Health Foundation is a 501 (c) 3 public charity that was formed to encourage corporations, foundations, and individual citizens to invest in the continued health and well-being of Atlanta through this vital public resource. Continuing in the spirit of its founders and leading the health system’s first major Capital Campaign, Grady Health Foundation was charged in 2008 with updating and re-engaging the community to support the metro-region’s premier Level I Trauma Center and the southeast’s largest public hospital. Consistent with Grady’s primary mission of caring for those traditionally without health coverage, the hospital delivered $227 million in uncompensated care to those in need in 2011.
