Brian was retained by Hilton Hotels Corporation following the sale of Hilton International. Prior to joining Hilton Group plc Brian held senior positions in Geest and Schlumberger.

“I would like to thank Rosemary for the valuable contribution she has made and wish her every success for the future. The appointment of Brian will further strengthen the management team, particularly given his retail knowledge and international experience.”
