Carlson Rezidor is strengthening its strategic investment and asset management capabilities with the addition of staff from Carlson’s Finance department. Deane Bruner, vice president, Business Development and Lodging Investments, is moving to Carlson Rezidor as senior vice president, Strategic Investments. Amanda Bauer, senior business analyst, Business Development and Lodging Investments, also will move to Carlson Rezidor. The announcement was made today by Bob Kleinschmidt, chief financial and development officer, Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, Americas. The moves are effective immediately.

Led by Deane, and supported by Amanda and Shannon Landblom, manager, Business Development and Lodging Investments, this team successfully spearheaded several strategic transactions for Carlson, including the 2009 sale of Carlson Marketing to Groupe Aeroplan and the 2008 sale of Regent Seven Seas Cruises to an affiliate of Apollo management. This team was also instrumental in recent hotel sales, including the partial sale of Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel, Chicago, and the sale of Radisson Lord Baltimore.

In his new role as Carlson Rezidor’s senior vice President, Strategic Investments, Deane will work with the leadership team on achieving strategic goals, with a near-term focus on executing Carlson Hotels Real Estate Corporation (CHREC) investment strategies.
