Carlson, a privately held, global hospitality and travel company, announced the appointment of Lyle Lewis as area vice president for its hotel business in China. Reporting directly to Jean-Marc Busato, managing director of Carlson Hotels, Asia Pacific, in the newly created role, Lewis will develop Carlson's plans for expansion in the Asia Pacific region.
In addition to taking the reins in China, Lewis has also been promoted from vice president to executive vice president of operations for Carlson Hotels, Asia Pacific. He will step into both positions this October when he will move from Singapore to Shanghai, China.
Busato said, "A seasoned hotelier with almost three decades of international hospitality expertise, Lyle has contributed extensively to the improved operating and financial performance, as well as increased guest satisfaction at the many Radisson hotels that he led, prior to assuming his corporate role."
