US: Jim Alderman has left his role as CEO of Radisson Hotel Group Americas (RHGA) to pursue other opportunities.
Radisson said in a statement that the company is looking for a full-time replacement. Tom Buoy, Radisson’s CCO, will serve as interim CEO.
Alderman joined RHGA as CEO in March 2020, succeeding Ken Greene who is now president and CEO at AAHOA (Asian American Hotel Owners Association).
Prior to this, Alderman served as EVP for Extended Stay America and before this, worked with Kimpton Hotels as chief development officer. He has also held positions with Wyndham, Starwood Capital, IHG, and Ernst & Young.
“Our plan is to continue to move forward with the vision set forth by our board and executive team to grow the company,” Buoy said. “We have an exceptional internal team of leaders focused on making Radisson Hotel Group Americas better for owners, franchisees, team members, and investors alike, and I am very confident we will continue to grow in 2022 and beyond.”
Prior to joining Radisson Hotel Group Americas, Buoy served as president and CEO of his own commercial consulting and advisory business. He also led the commercial transformation at Extended Stay America and has worked at Morgans Hotel Group (previously Ian Schrager Hotels), E&Y’s Hospitality Consulting practice, and in operations and revenue management with Accor in Australia.
