DENVER—Richfield Hospitality has named Will Loughran, the company’s SVP of sales and revenue strategy, as president.
“Will has been a consistent source of innovation and leadership during his tenure with Richfield," said Sherman Kwek, CEO of City e-Solutions Limited, Richfield's parent company. "Over the course of his career, he has proven himself in the various disciplines that he has undertaken and his background comprises a strong blend of operational and sales experience, not to mention his exceptional teamwork abilities. I am confident that his passion for the hospitality business will enable him to deliver outstanding results for both Richfield and the owners of the properties we manage."
Loughran began his career with Marriott International and over the course of 17 years in increasingly more responsible positions, earned recognition for driving market share and exceeding operational standards. Prior to joining Richfield in 2011, Loughran led the revenue management discipline at Sage Hospitality where he was known for fostering alignment with owners, developing strong teams and strategic planning.
“We recently redefined the needs of our organization and hired carefully chosen executives who have already proven to be a tremendous complement to our existing leadership team of dedicated hospitality and technology professionals,” said Loughran. “We are poised for expansion and this combination of agility and experience will enable us to take our companies, Richfield Hospitality and Sceptre Hospitality Resources, on a journey of rapid growth and industry-leading innovation.”
