Hilton Appoints Marketing VP

Hilton Worldwide Luxury Brands has appointed Stuart Foster as vice president of marketing.

He will lead all luxury marketing initiatives and oversee the strategic development of global positioning for Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts and Conrad Hotels & Resorts.

Foster was formerly vice president of the southeast region for Moet-Hennessy USA, a division of LVMH.

During his 15-year tenure with the luxury wine and spirits group, Foster provided leadership in some of the world's top markets, including New York, Paris and Tokyo. While based in Paris as global brand director for the group's namesake champagne brand, he developed and implemented a successful brand renewal strategy.

While working in Tokyo as a senior marketing manager, he reinvigorated the presence of one of the world's premier champagne brands, accelerating its growth in traditional channels while also developing its visibility in hotels, restaurants and wine shops.--Tanya Irwin
