The Confidante Miami Beach, a 354-guestroom hotel and member of The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand, has named Amy Johnson general manager. A hospitality professional for more than 30 years, Johnson has worked at Hyatt for nearly two decades, eventually shifting to the corporate level and then, most recently serving as GM of Hyatt Regency Calgary in Alberta.

Before joining Hyatt, Johnson’s early career consisted of director roles in banquets and events with Delta Hotels and Resorts, where she spent eight years, and Fairmont Hotels and Resorts, where she worked for over five years.

In 2000, she began working at Hyatt Regency Calgary, serving as director of events and banquet operations and then senior director of events, catering and convention services. After more than six years there, she moved to Hyatt Regency O’Hare in Rosemont, Ill., where she worked as senior director of catering and conventions and helped relaunch the hotel after its $175 million renovation.

Johnson moved to the corporate level in 2007, supporting the revenue, sales and events division as director of events for the Americas. During her time there, she was the sales and events lead for opening and transitioned more than 45 hotels. In late 2015, she returned to Hyatt Regency Calgary, this time as general manager.
