Radisson Hotel Group’s president for the Americas Ken Greene resigned from his position Dec. 2, citing personal reasons, according to the company, which is launching a search for his replacement.

“I want to thank Ken for his contributions to Radisson Hotel Group,” Federico J. González, chair of Radisson Hotel Group’s Global Steering Committee, said in a statement. “Growth of our brands in the Americas continues to be a key component of our five-year strategic plan and I look forward to building on the strong foundation and owner-centric culture we have established.”

Greene began working at Radisson Hotel Group two-and-a-half years ago. Earlier in his career, Greene served as president/CEO of Delta Hotels and Resorts; president and managing director for the Asia Pacific region at Wyndham Hotel Group; and president of Howard Johnson International and Travelodge Hotels at Cendant.

It has more than 1,400 hotels in operation and under development around the world. As of June 30, it had 622 hotels with 66,198 rooms open in the Americas.
