Radisson Hotel Group has appointed Sergio Amodeo to the role of chief financial officer, effective June 1st.
He joins Radisson Hotel Group from TeamSystem Group, the leading management software company in Italy, where he has held the chief financial officer role since 2015.
During his time there, Amodeo supervised the sale of the group from one private equity fund to another (Hellman & Friedman), which has given him a deep understanding of capital markets.
Prior to that, he spent two years serving as chief financial officer of Bolton Group, a privately owned FMCG group, following sixteen years at Danone.
His final role there saw him responsible for the global corporate development of the company’s leading division - after holding several country and regional chief financial officer roles.
“I am delighted to welcome Sergio to his new role and to Radisson Hotel Group,” said Federico González-Tejera, president and chief executive of Radisson Hospitality.
“He joins us at a key stage on our journey towards becoming one of the three top-of-mind hotel groups in the world.
“His experience and expertise will be critical in delivering on our commitments of the five-year operating plan.”
Sergio will take on the duties of current chief financial officer Knut Kleiven, who is retiring after 30 years with the company.
