IHIF Interview: Chris Nassetta, CEO, Hilton

(IHIF)

Chris Nassetta, the CEO of Hilton, has, like most other CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, been busy of late. What with the spinoff of its real estate and vacation business, the ramp up of a new limited-service brand, the development of a tech-centric 'Connected Room' and the drama surrounding two Chinese companies with strong positions in the company, it's no surprise Nassetta had a slight cold when we talked to him at the International Hotel Investment Forum in Berlin.

But like a true professional, he powered through!

In this exclusive interview, he shares his thoughts on it all, and offers his take on the impact of President Donald Trump and his administration's policies vis-à-vis the hospitality industry.
