Abrahamson leaves Hyatt for IHG president role


InterContinental Hotels Group announced today that Jim Abrahamson will be the new president for the Americas Region.
Abrahamson most recently held the position of head of development for the Americas at Global Hyatt Corp. He was responsible for the development and growth of Hyatt Place and Hyatt Summerfield Suites, which both opened their first flagged properties in 2007. Hyatt Place was ranked “Highest in Guest Satisfaction Among Mid-Scale Hotel Chains with Full Service” in the J.D. Power and Associates 2008 North America Hotel Guest Satisfaction Index Study.
At IHG, Abrahamson will take over for Richard Solomons, who was serving as interim president of the Americas after Stevan Porter died in August. Solomons also serves as finance director for IHG.
