The 14-brand-hospitality company, Hilton, recently announced the appointment of Noelle Eder as its executive vice president and chief information and digital officer.

Eder will oversee the continued digital transformation benefiting the guests and team members of Hilton.

“You don’t get to be a leader in hospitality and digital technology without focusing first on your guests,” said Jon Witter, chief customer officer. “From smartphone capabilities like Digital Key to connected rooms that allow for integrated entertainment, temperature and lighting controls, Hilton is leading the way with game-changing technologies. With Noelle at the helm, we are excited to embark on the next chapter of our digital and mobile transformation.”

Eder brings to Hilton a cross section of business acumen, technical knowledge and customer-facing expertise from her previous experiences at Capital One Financial Corp. and Intuit.

“Hilton’s nearly 100-year history of innovation is evident in the way it applies technology to support its business and enhance the guest experience,” said Eder. “I am proud to be joining a team that has a track record of success and is taking the industry in new directions. Together we will ensure Hilton has the technology needed to support its continued global growth and stay at the forefront of hospitality innovation.”

Houston City Council approved the appointment of Brenda Bazan as the new president and CEO of the Houston First Corporation (HFC).

“It’s an honor to be selected by Mayor Turner and confirmed by the city council,” said Bazan.

 

The Greater St. Charles Convention & Visitors Bureau (GSCCVB) has named DeAnn Wagner as Interim Executive Director.

Wagner’s main goal in this interim role is to increase awareness for the greater St. Charles I1 area.

“In the last twelve years, I’ve grown to love this community with its treasure trove of unique meeting spaces, attractions, and events, and I want everyone to experience them,” said Wagner.

Wagner brings more than a decade of experience in the tourism industry to her credit.

 

Viceroy Snowmass recently hired Danielle McNair as director of business development for their sales professional team.

“Being the director is actually very similar to my previous sales leader role because much of what I do still relates to hotel sales,” said McNair.

As the lead member of the sales team, McNair is responsible for generating new business leads and revenue streams in the association, corporate meetings and incentives sectors.
