Radisson Hotel Group promoted Rebecca Lieberman, formerly the company's VP of human resources for the Americas, to chief human resources officer. In her new role, she leads the company’s human resources, communications, responsible business and facilities functions in the Americas and Asia Pacific.

“Rebecca is a true leader playing a key role in unifying our teams and building our corporate culture, making Radisson Hotel Group the company of choice for guests, owners and talent,” Federico J. González, chairman of Radisson Hotel Group’s global steering committee, said in a statement. “We are excited she is taking on this new role as her expertise will be invaluable as we move forward in executing our strategic five-year plan driving growth across the Americas.”
