After 30 years of leadership at Outrigger Hotels and Resorts, David Carey will step down as CEO and transition into a lead role on the company’s advisory board, focusing on development, community relations and strategic growth.
Scott Dalecio, co-founder and CEO of KSL Resorts, which acquired Outrigger last year, will succeed Carey as interim CEO.
Additional appointments include the promotion of John Neeley, vice president of information technology, who has worked with Outrigger for 24 years, and David Nadeau as incoming chief financial officer.
Neeley and Nadeau will play integral roles in alignment of technology and innovation with Outrigger’s current assets and expansion plans.
The Waikiki-based company expects to reinvest upwards of US$100 million over the next few years to improve its hotels and resorts. It will also add both resources and expertise for business development and project management.
Along with the planned capital improvements, there will also be major technology upgrades and a renewed focus on host training and support at the company.
