Her first decade in the industry consisted of standout director-level roles at world-class companies, including Omni International Hotels & Resorts and the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company.
"Colleen is an exceptional leader, a strong strategist and a relentless competitor. Her passion for performance and accountability will complement our culture and inspire our teams to achieve an even higher level of success," said Thom Geshay, chief operating officer of Davidson.
