Carlson Rezidor has named Fred Schwartz as the company’s new vice president of owner relations for the Americas region.
Schwartz will report directly to Philip Silberstein, the executive vice president for development and Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group in the Americas.
“Fred is a highly respected industry leader and joins us after an impressive 18-year career as president of the Asian American Hotel Owners Association (AAHOA), where he helped grow the organization from 3,000 to 14,000 members who own more than 40 percent of US hotels,” Silberstein said. “He brings outstanding expertise in franchising and lodging operations and a proven ability to establish and nurture relationships.”
Carlson Rezidor’s Radisson brand has been expanding in the Caribbean of late, including new properties in Grenada and Barbados.
The company has more than 1,350 hotels in operation worldwide.
