Viceroy Hotels & Resorts promoted its SVP of hotel finance, Hilda Delgado, to chief financial officer, where she will oversee all financial operations of the company’s managed portfolio. The new role places Delgado in charge of Viceroy’s finance and accounting teams, risk management, strategic planning and continued growth.
