US: Jeff Wagoner announced as new president and CEO of Outrigger Hotels and Resorts
Outrigger Hotels and Resorts has announced the appointment of Jeff Wagoner as president and CEO.
Wagoner takes over from Scott Dalecio. KSL Resorts co-founder and CEO Dalecio has been serving as Outrigger’s interim CEO since early 2017, and has now been appointed executive chairman of the global hospitality brand.
Wagoner joins Outrigger with a wealth of experience in the sector. His previous positions include executive vice president of hotel operations for Trump Hotels and several senior level positions in the Wyndham Hotel Group, including president Wyndham Hotel Group Management, EVP global brand services and president Wyndham Hotels and Resorts.
Dalecio said: “Jeff is a proven leader with the operational strength and industry intelligence to successfully steer Outrigger Hotels and Resorts as we further expand the global footprint of this iconic hospitality brand. His skillset is a tremendous asset to our organization and equally important, his leadership style fits impeccably with Outrigger’s culture of Ke `Ano Wa`a – caring for the guest, the host and the place.”
Wagoner said: “It’s a tremendous time of reinvestment and growth for Outrigger Hotels and Resorts and I am honored for the opportunity to be a part of this new chapter. Building on Outrigger’s 70 years of hospitality, I look forward to enhancing and growing our portfolio while upholding the authenticity and integrity of this iconic brand.”
