Radisson Hotel Group has announced the appointment of Sergio Amodeo as chief financial officer of Radisson Hospitality AB, and member of the Global Steering Committee for the Group effective June 1, 2019.
Sergio joins Radisson Hotel Group from TeamSystem Group, the leading management software company in Italy, where he was CFO since 2015.
During his time there, he 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 CFO of Bolton Group, a privately owned FMCG group, following 16 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 CFO roles.
Sergio graduated from Insead’s Advanced Management Programme (AMP) and has a major in Business Economics from the University of Salerno.
“I am delighted to welcome Sergio to his new role and to Radisson Hotel Group,” said Federico González-Tejera, president and chief executive officer of Radisson Hospitality AB and chairman of the Radisson Hotel Group Global Steering Committee.
“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 Knut Kleiven, who is currently the deputy president and CFO of Radisson Hospitality AB and a member of the Global Steering Committee for Radisson Hotel Group.
“I wish to personally thank Knut for his hard work and dedication over the many years he has been a part of the group,” continued Mr González-Tejera.
“He has been an inspirational and iconic figure within our company for decades and has helped transform it into the global renowned brand it is today. I wish him all the best during his retirement.”
