Chris Walker

The New York-based Americas division of The Leading Hotels of the World, Ltd. (LHW), has just appointed Chris Walker as SVP of Sales. No stranger to managing the growth and development of some of the world’s leading brands (including Hyatt Hotels, where he served as Vice President prior to accepting his new position), Walker, in his new title, will handle relationships between LHW and its constituent hotels and travel partners within the Americas.

Given his former success overseeing business and product development, generating revenue, and expanding Hyatt Hotels’ customer base across Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and South America, along with launching a credit card partnership with Chase, the Harvard Business School graduate will continue to pursue commercially driven initiatives in his current position.
