San Francisco-based Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants expanded its senior leadership team with the addition of Allison Reid chief development officer for the Americas region. Reid, who joins from Starwood Hotels & Resorts, brings a history of success in development, real estate investments, finance and hotel operations.
Kimpton’s Mike DeFrino said, “With 18 projected openings through 2020, demand for the Kimpton brand is growing around the world. Allison’s successful track record will further fuel our development pipeline and strengthen our presence in key urban, resort, and gateway markets.”
Reid will be responsible for leading Kimpton’s real estate development and management contracts across the brand.
While at Starwood, she oversaw development and acquisition efforts for all 11 of its brands in North America, the Caribbean and French Polynesia. Reid was instrumental in launching three new brands, including Starwood’s “Tribute Portfolio,” and served as the CFO for W Hotels.
