REGENT Hotels & Resorts has ended its search for a senior vice president of operations by appointing Peter Finamore to the role.
The role is critical, as the Asian brand – acquired by Formosa Taiwan’s Steven Pan – makes concerted moves to bring back the glory of Regent. With more than 30 years of luxury hospitality experience across Asia, the Middle East and the Americas, Finamore will be responsible for leading the operational and financial performance of all Regent hotels globally.
Finamore was most recently managing director at Rosewood Hotels & Resorts in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. His hotel career was also influenced by the Peninsula Group, where he was general manager of The Peninsula’s in Beijing and Chicago.
Regent’s president Ralf Ohletz said: “Combined with his global experience in current growth markets, he will be a key player in Regent’s expansion as we prepare for opening and operating bespoke, luxury, multi-use hotels in captivating locations.”
