Fernando Leal

New Renaissance Hotel Managing Partner/Owner
New Renaissance Hotel Managing Partner/Owner
If you don’t know him, you certainly have seen his work around Reno. And, his company does big redevelopment projects.
Currently Fernando Leal is the managing partner and owner of the Renaissance Reno Downtown Hotel. He has been working on the dream to revitalize the former Siena Hotel Casino for more than a few years and the dream came to fruition this Spring. The doors to a new four-star designer concept Marriott brand hotel opened a few months ago. As in all of his projects, Leal brought local flavor and amenities that personifies our city. He converted the gaming space into a vast sports bar featuring bocce ball courts and other fun table games that adults will enjoy—both indoors and on the outdoor courts. The hotel is one of a few dog-friendly properties. Visitors enjoy breathtaking views of the Sierra Mountains or the Truckee River. The design throughout the hotel is very thoughtful and worth a tour to see all of them. Tours will be offered before and after our meeting at 11:15 and 1:30. The meeting will take place in the Sky 2 room on the second floor.

Some of the other local projects that Leal has led include: the Montage Residences, CommRow (now Whitney Peak) and the ReTrac project. Currently he serves as manager of Marmot Properties and CEO of Sierra Wellness Connection. His 30+ year career as an entrepreneur started in Chicago, redeveloping downtown properties. More importantly, he is a married father of three young adults, a committed full-time Reno resident and a dog lover.

Update on our Current Projects

In the past year, our club has donated $155,000+ and hundreds of volunteer hours. 

Members of our club volunteer quarterly at the Northern Nevada Food Bank. (June 2017)

From July 2015 to June 2016, our club gave out $94,000+ to various projects in our local community, including $21,000 to Lemelson STEM Academy (Title 1 elementary school), and $40,000 in higher ed and vocational scholarships, with the remainder to the Food Bank of Northern Nevada, science fairs, RYLA and exchange students, and awards for teachers and law enforcement.
Club members and artists (and Abby, the dog) provide a Meet the Artists event at our downtown Reno Rotary Sculpture Garden for Artown. Sculptors discussed their creations and how they were made. (July 2017)
INTERNATIONAL IMPACT - We gave out $61,000+ to 7 projects around the world, including: 
- Our club, with support from other Rotary clubs, is undertaking a major project for an orphanage for disabled children in Panama. 

NEPAL - The Cow Farm Project, has produced milk sales revenue of almost $600 to date. Profits from the project will help sustain BTF’s maternal/child wellness and education efforts in the remote Humla District of northern Nepal. They will conduct two 5-day Safe Motherhood classes in November educating a total of 50 women.
