Hilton Hotels Corporation Announces Plans to Relocate Global Headquarters from Beverly Hills to Washington, DC Area
Christopher J. Nassetta, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “After careful consideration of both the needs of our business and the impact on our organization, we identified the greater Washington, DC metropolitan area as the best market for our business and the right decision for our future. Relocating to the DC area will significantly reduce our operating expenses and will position Hilton in a more central location from which to operate a global business, ease coordination across our organization, and better enable us to execute on strategic opportunities. Our vision for Hilton is to create the world’s leading hotel company, and this is a necessary and important step toward reaching this goal.”
Nassetta added: “We understand this is a major change for our organization, and we will do our best to minimize disruptions to employees and operations. We have a long history in Beverly Hills and appreciate the support we have received from our civic partners and citizens in the community over the years.”
