US: 21c Museum Hotels has announced that Craig Greenberg will succeed Steve Wilson as CEO of the company.

Greenberg, who has served as president of 21c Museum Hotels since 2012, will now serve as president and CEO.
Wilson, who founded the company with his wife Laura Lee Brown in 2006, will continue to serve as chairman of the board, "responsible for guiding the vision and development of the brand and growing the contemporary art collection".
Wilson said: "Laura Lee and I had a vision for a redevelopment effort that could also provide greater access to contemporary art in our hometown. Since those early days, the company has experienced rapid growth, always maintaining contemporary art and genuine hospitality at its core. Craig has played a vital role in 21c's development since the beginning, and we know the company is poised for continued success under his leadership."

"Laura Lee and Steve's vision, courage, and commitment have certainly benefitted so many of us - locals and travelers alike, artists, and 21c teammates. I look forward to carrying their vision forward into this next phase of the company's growth and continuing to work with them in this new capacity."
During Greenberg's tenure as President of 21c Museum Hotels, the company has expanded from its flagship in Louisville, Kentucky, to include properties in six additional markets, hired more than 1,000 staff, overseen real estate developments in excess of $380 million, and organised more than 100 art exhibitions in over 75,000 square feet of exhibition space.
