CHICAGO — Chrissy Dizon has joined Hyatt’s Americas-Development team as Development manager, based in the regional office in Toronto.
In this role, Dizon reports to Scott Richer, Hyatt’s regional vice-president of Development for Canada. Dizon will be the primary contact with the hotel-franchise community for the development and growth of Hyatt brands across Canada and will coordinate all Canadian development trade shows, conferences and events.
“Hyatt is fortunate to welcome an invaluable member to our development team here in Canada. Chrissy’s impressive track record in business efficiency and her innate technical ability will help advance our efforts to a new level,” says Richer. “Hyatt remains committed to growth in Canada, with plans to more than double its presence in the next three years and its investment in establishing this role is further proof of that commitment.”
Dizon joins the Canada office after four years in the Chicago corporate office, gaining a wide range of experience with work in finance and, most recently, with the corporate-feasibility team. She brings feasibility knowledge, as well as finance experience to the role.
“I’ve always admired Hyatt and its strong global consumer recognition and loyalty across all its brands,” says Dizon. “It’s an exciting time as Hyatt accelerates its presence in Canada and I look forward to helping drive growth in such an important market to our business.”
