Hotel management and investment company KSL Resorts has promoted its CFO of 14 years, James Struthers, to president. In addition to overseeing the company’s financial performance, Struthers also led its asset-management division since 2012.

In his new role, Struthers said he expects to “focus on people and resources, continuous improvement, innovation, and on driving the strategy of the company.” As it looks to expand globally, KSL Resorts described Struthers’ extensive international experience as “particularly relevant.”

Before joining KSL Resorts, Struthers served as CFO at Orient-Express Hotels (now Belmond), where he worked with its CEO to complete its initial public offering. Before that, he was CFO for Eurostar.
