Trump Hotel Collection's Next Steps
Ivanka Trump (whom we snapped at the NYU conference) was four when she'd climb into the car with her brothers and father to check out Dad's development projects. She was the same age when Dad (you know him as Donald) first started sending her memos about his projects. After a more formal education at Georgetown and Wharton, she joined The Trump Org in '05, and a year later, the company launched the Trump Hotel Collection. Ivanka says the brand would like to own 30 hotels by 2020 (it's got 12 now, including DC's Old Post Office Building and properties in Rio and Vancouver, all opening in 2016), though the company won't grow just for the sake of it.
