Wilson Wang is one of the founding members of Atlas Hospitality Group. Since its inception in 1997, Wang has been a significant part of Atlas and helped in creating the success stories of Atlas. Wang attained his Bachelor’s Degree from University of Southern California in 1993 with dual emphasis in Corporate Management and Real Estate Financing, and began his real estate brokerage career immediately post-graduation. Prior to forming Atlas, Wang successfully brokered hotels at a national brokerage company.
Wang has gained a reputation by serving three years as a President in the Taiwan Hotel & Motel Association of Southern California (THMASC). The goal of the Association is to better assist Taiwanese/Taiwanese investors in becoming owners of hotels/motels and operating business opportunities in California. Wang assisted the members of the Association in various different aspects, including hotel sales consulting and assisting owners in fighting with “drive-by lawsuits”. Other hospitality affiliations include California Hotel & Lodging Association (CH&LA), Asian American Hotel Owners Association (AAHOA), and California Lodging Industry Association (CLIA).
Wang’s philosophy in hotel business is best described as client-needs driven, which is evidenced by the number of clients that have done multiple transactions with him, and his dedication to the services provided to members of various Associations. In 2001-2002, the Proposition 65 invaded numerous owners. Wang solely initiated the research tasks for the Association members and help retained Jeffer, Mangels, Butler & Mitchell, LLP, a prestige law firm in the United States, to represent over 300 hotels from THMASC and CH&LA.
