SHORT HILLS, NJ—Hilton Worldwide appointed Pablo Torres general manager of the AAA Four Diamond Hilton Short Hills, here.
Torres will oversee the day-to-day operations and management of this 304-room property. Torres succeeds Peter Webster, who was recently promoted to general manager, Hilton Petaling Jaya in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Most recently, Torres was GM at the 288-room British Colonial Hilton Nassau in The Bahamas, where he helped the property regain Four Diamond status. Previously as director of operations for the Caribe Hilton in San Juan, PR (where he began his hospitality career as a food and beverage management trainee), Torres oversaw the F&B, engineering and rooms division areas, ensuring that all departmental service, legal and safety standards were met on a consistent basis.
