In the new role, Mirabelli, who joins Wyndham from RCI Latin America, will be responsible for leading Wyndham Hotel Group’s development efforts in the region. He will be based out of Buenos Aires.

“We are thrilled to welcome Luis to the Wyndham Hotel Group family,” said Daniel del Olmo, Wyndham Hotel Group’s senior vice president and managing director, Latin America. “His extensive experience, unrivaled passion and strong relationships in the region will be integral in helping us drive development and grow our portfolio of hotel brands in Latin America’s thriving markets.”

Wyndham says it is looking to expand its footprint in the region, focusing efforts on countries including Mexico and Panama, among others further south.

The company recently added a new property in Costa Rica, the 100th hotel in its regional portfolio.
