"I am honored to join the Executive Committee of the world’s most hospitable company,” said Hughes. “Ours is a diverse region with hotel opportunities across both established and developing travel markets. I will be focused on maintaining our position as one of the world’s best workplaces, and on being the first hospitality choice for our guests.”
