More Management Changes at Hilton

Effective March 1, Thomas Keltner will assume the role of executive vice president, Hilton Hotels Corp. and CEO, Americas and global brands, the company announced Friday. Keltner, previously president of the brand performance and franchise development group, will report directly to Matthew Hart, Hilton's president and COO. Three other management personnel were given promotions, which come just a little over two weeks after the announcement that Stephen Bollenbach will step down as Hilton's CEO December 31. "These are truly exciting times for our company," said Hart, "and it is our management strength that will help us continue enhancing our position as the worldwide lodging industry leader."
