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.
