Preferred Hotel Group has promoted Lindsey Ueberroth to CEO. She will also continue to serve in her role as president.
The move is part of a planned succession of leadership as the company enters its 10th year of private ownership by the Ueberroth family, the company said. The announcement was made by John Ueberroth, who will continue to serve as chairman.
Lindsey launched the company’s new points-based iPrefer loyalty program. Under her leadership, the company also executed the introduction of the Sterling Design and Summit Serviced Residences brands, marked first-time presence in more than 20 new countries, and formed partnerships with renowned independent hotels, ranging from Wynn Las Vegas and The Alpina Gstaad to The Mark Hotel and EAST Beijing. Shortly after joining Preferred Hotel Group, Lindsey spearheaded the development of the Preferred Boutique brand. A graduate of Wake Forest University, she has traveled to more than 100 countries.
“It is with the full support of our Board of Directors that I announce this strategic transition in the leadership of Preferred Hotel Group,” said John Ueberroth. “Lindsey’s contributions over the past 10 years have enabled Preferred Hotel Group to achieve a position as the world’s leading partner for independent hotels and resorts. I am confident in her ability to continue to drive great achievements for our company while delivering exceptional results for our partners.”
Lindsey Ueberroth, 38, joined Preferred Hotel Group in 2004 and has served in several roles, including president from 2010 to the present.
“After 10 years of continuous growth, the company is in a prime position to facilitate global growth, drive greater financial success, and solidify our position as the champion of the independent hotel world,” said Lindsey Ueberroth.
