US: Raul Moronta has been appointed as chief commercial officer at Remington Hotels, an entirely new position for the brand.
Moronta will have direct oversight of sales, revenue management, and digital marketing for Remington’s portfolio of 77 properties. He will work closely with Sloan Dean, CEO and president, to collaborate over the accounting, development, human resources, legal and operations departments.
Serving most recently as senior vice president of revetment management at Crescent Hotels & Resorts, Moronta has held senior positions at Starwood Hotels & Resorts and Hersha Hospitality Management.
Dean commented: “When we started our search for the newly created CCO position, our one requirement was to find the very best commercial leader in the business and I’m excited that we’ve landed an absolute superstar in Raul. [He] is not only a talent but a great cultural fit for Remington which is paramount given we are one of the highest rated third-party managers in the country.”
