Tanya M. Taylor is Vice President at Wyndham Hotel Group where she is responsible for all legal work concerning Latin America and the Caribbean. She negotiates and drafts agreements on hotel ownership, licensing, management and operations, franchise, design and construction, banquet facility, third-party concession leases, trademark licenses and international disclosure documents. Tanya is a public speaker for organizations such as the National Association of Black Hotel Owners (NABOOD) and the National Women’s Diversity Council. Much of her success can be attributed to being flexible and, according to Tanya, “knowing what you don’t know.”
Tanya graduated from Georgetown University in 1990 with a Bachelors Degree in Psychology and a minor in government. In 1993, she graduated the University of Pennsylvania School of Law with her Juris Doctor Degree. She finds that her knowledge of psychology has benefited her negotiation skills.
In her free time, Tanya enjoys sports, music and travel. She reads hotel magazines and donates to the Apollo Theater. In her future, she would like to shift away from the legal and into the business realm.
