Sagar Kumar

CEO, OceansV Hotel Management

Growing up with his hard working parents, Sagar had learned that the hospitality industry had infinite limits. It’s a job that requires constant vigilance, a good support team, and the courage to step out of the box. Once Sagar graduated UCLA with an Economics degree in 2005, he began acquiring and remodeling hotels throughout the Los Angeles area. Then in 2006, he spent one year in West Texas where he converted buildings into extended stay hotels. He continued to oversee all management personnel at these properties.

In 2009, Sagar took a risk and decided to branch off from the well-known franchise models and create a boutique hotel in Studio City, California. Being one of the first in the industry to adopt this model, especially during a nationwide economic decline, Sagar utilized his knowledge of the hospitality industry to build a brand from the bottom up. In 2011, he opened the first of three BLVD Hotels, while continuing his management role of nearly 20 other franchised properties.


Currently, Sagar maintains his ownership role in over 30 hotels nationwide, and as OceansV Hotel Management CEO, is responsible for the management operations, development, and success of all properties.
