InterContinental Hotels Group® (IHG), one of the world’s leading hotel companies, is pleased to announce the appointment of Jacque Riley, Brand Director, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants Europe. The newly created role will report directly to Tom Rowntree – VP Brand Management, Luxury & Boutique Brands, Europe, and begin with immediate effect.
IHG acquired Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants in 2015 and recently announced the signing of Kimpton Paris as the second Kimpton within Europe. The signing of Kimpton Amsterdam was announced in January 2016. Jacque’s appointment is a result of the success of developing the Kimpton brand within the region.
Jacque joins IHG within Europe from IIHG Europe from the Kimpton team in the US, where she was Director of Communications for East USA, based in Washington DC. She joined Kimpton 3 years ago as Director of Restaurants PR, Washington DC and Virginia, and is the first Kimpton colleague to make the move to a role within the IHG team. Prior to Kimpton Jacque owned her own PR company in Columbia, South Carolina.
Says Tom Rowntree, “Following IHG’s recent launch announcement of Kimpton hotels in Amsterdam and Paris, Jacque’s appointment is key to delivering the launch of the brand across the region and supporting our wider business strategy. Our focus is to maintain all that makes the Kimpton brand special and loved, whilst bringing the brand to life in new markets, languages and cultures; Jacque, with her depth of experience, is the perfect person to help deliver this .”
Says Jacque Riley, “I am incredibly passionate about the Kimpton brand and am excited to join the Europe team at a pivotal time as we prepare to introduce Kimpton to our guests. I can’t wait to share our approach to heartfelt hospitality with the continent that first inspired Bill Kimpton more than 35 years ago.”
