Less than a month after acquiring Remington Hotels, Ashford has revealed several major organizational changes at the operating company. Most notably, Remington Hotels promoted Sloan Dean III from chief operating officer to CEO/president, where he takes over from Monty Bennett, the CEO/chairman of Ashford.

Other leadership changes include the promotion of Stan Kennedy from SVP of operations to chief operating officer, the appointment of Jarrad Evans as chief investment officer and the creation of a chief commercial officer role.

Following its Nov. 6 acquisition, Ashford now fully owns Remington Hotels. The management company, however, will operate 100 percent independent of Ashford and remain an entirely separate business. Remington Hotels will operate properties for various owners, not just Ashford.
