International lifestyle hospitality group SBE expanded its executive team this month with the appointments of Beverly Ramsook and Rohit Anand as VPs of revenue management and global brand partnerships, respectively.

Before starting at SBE as VP of revenue management, she held the same role at Performance Hospitality. Before that, she served as VP of hotel supplier relations and sales at Hickory Global Partners and VP of revenue management and distribution at Denihan Hospitality Group.

Anand, SBE’s new VP of global brand partnerships, joins the company after nine years with Dream Hotel Group, where he most recently served as VP of brand activation and partnerships. In his new role at SBE, he will work directly with Chief Brand Officer Michele Caniato on building the company’s lifestyle partnership portfolio.
