Castlerock Asset Management appointed Hugh Templeman as GM of the Westin Nashville. With more than three decades of experience in both luxury and lifestyle hotels, and most recently serving as GM regional VP for Colorado's Viceroy Snowmass resort, Templeman will lead the operation of the 456-room property. 

“Hugh’s history of working with both international and domestic luxury hotel brands, such as the Ritz-Carlton and the Four Seasons, has added an excellent element to the Westin Nashville, and we believe his experience makes him the perfect fit for this position,” Ray Waters, VP of Castlerock Asset Management, said in a statement.
