The Venza Group and Magnolia Hotels Partner to Address PCI Compliance in the Hospitality Industry

  • 06.10.15
The Venza Group and Magnolia Hotels are partnering up to benefit from each organization’s expertise in the areas of PCI compliance training and hospitality industry risk management.

Magnolia Hotels, the owner and operator of six hotels in five cities, including the original Magnolia Hotel in downtown Denver, has implemented the Venza Group’s PCI training modules at its properties for the past two years.

“More than a client, Magnolia Hotels has become one of our key strategic partners, and it’s been a win-win for both of our organizations.” said Daniel Johnson, COO of The Venza Group. “They’re better able to protect guests’ personal and credit card information, and we’ve gained valuable new insights about risk management in the hospitality industry.”

Jeffrey Parker, vice president of technology at Magnolia Hotels, also sits on Venza’s PEAK Advisory Council. Venza PEAK programs address compliance and workforce effectiveness with training modules particularly designed for the hospitality industry. The PEAK Advisory Council is composed of industry experts who help guide and develop the program content to ensure it remains up to date in a rapidly changing environment.

“We’re committed to providing the best return on investment through development, strong management and superior service at each of our hotels,” said Parker. “Partnering with the Venza Group helps us meet that commitment in a number of ways. By participating in the PEAK Advisory Council, I’m continually exploring new trends affecting the hospitality industry, and Venza’s PCI training ensures that the people who work at our properties have the skills to comply with legal requirements and protect the security of our guests.”

Venza’s PCI programs are a series of interactive eLearning modules addressing Payment Card Industry compliance in the hotel industry. Modules introduce concepts in the hospitality industry setting, with eLearning programs specifically targeted for management, employees and IT. The legal content for PCI programs is provided by Venza Group partner Arnall Golden Gregory (AGG).
