“Since acquiring Viceroy, our focus has been on refining the product and brand story, as well as powering Viceroy through its proprietary relationship with Highgate’s operating platform, adding significant distribution capabilities and instilling the benefits of Highgate’s scale and resources,” continued Russo. “In doing so, we are grooming Viceroy to be the global leader in the luxury hotel and branded residential industries.”

Keiser also expressed his enthusiasm about joining Viceroy, saying, “I am honored to take on this new role and lead the portfolio growth of Viceroy. The brand’s commitment to luxury and innovation resonates strongly with me, and I am eager to help lead the next chapter for Viceroy While there are a number of players in the luxury and lifestyle hotel segment, Viceroy, through its affiliation with Highgate is the only company in the industry that has the nimbleness and entrepreneurial spirit of a small company while also being powered by the scale and distribution of a large hospitality ecosystem. The opportunity at Viceroy is to create a leading luxury hotel brand where real estate asset value enhancement is at the core of its DNA.”

Mark Keiser’s appointment is effective immediately, and Viceroy Hotel Group looks forward to achieving new milestones under his leadership.
