Why he is influential: Shamin Hotels, founded by Amin’s father and based in Chesterfield County, is the Richmond region’s largest hotel operator. In January, the company purchased its 60th hotel, the Hyatt Place Richmond Chester. An alum of Goldman Sachs & Co., Amin sits on several Virginia nonprofit boards, including Richmond Region Tourism and the Virginia Council on Economic Education (VCEE).
Recent developments: In January, Shamin purchased the Richmond Times-Dispatch building in downtown Richmond, which the company will use as its new headquarters, while leasing space to the newspaper and other tenants.
In Chesterfield, the company is building an upscale, 200-room hotel and conference center in the Stonebridge development. Construction started last fall on Shamin’s long-awaited Moxy Hotels by Marriott project in downtown Richmond, purchased in 2016. And Shamin is collaborating with local developer The Rebkee Co. to build a hotel next to a Henrico County-owned indoor sports arena scheduled to open in 2022 at Virginia Center Commons mall.
