Chris Nasetta (Hilton) - Global CEO Series

Posted on April 24, 2017

Jonathan Worsley, Chairman, Bench Events; Board Director, STR starts AHIC 2017 with a one-on-one conversation with Chris Nassetta, President and CEO, Hilton. One of the main points touched on by him was youth issues and unemployment. Nassetta said: "Youth issues and youth unemployment are the sort of things that we as a company and I as a person are very focused on because it’s good for our business and it’s a huge societal problem."

Nassetta gave the example of Saudi Arabia where Hilton is seeing success with young colleagues. Nassetta commented: "We have some really good momentum. They really are putting their heart and soul into getting ahead.

"We will have a bunch of great female general managers that will come out of that pool of talent in the not too distant future."
