Our Story

In 2003, successful business owner Steve Slowey broke into the hospitality market by building a Holiday Inn Express & Suites in his hometown of Yankton, South Dakota. As he began to expand his business in 2008, Mr. Slowey brought on Tim Rutjes to help accelerate development and direct the operations of the hotel portfolio, then consisting of three properties. Slowey Management was formally structured into an LLC in 2012, and since 2015 the company has been owned and operated by Mr. Rutjes and Mr. Slowey as managing partners. Mr. Rutjes has served as the company's president since 2020. In the past 15 years, Slowey Management has directed 17 hospitality projects in five states at a total capital investment of nearly $200 million dollars.
