Bill Walshe Named Viceroy's New CEO


Viceroy Hotel Group has named Bill Walshe their new Chief Executive Officer. Previously with the Dublin-based international luxury hotel group The Doyle Collection, Walshe was selected following a search by Viceroy Hotel Group's board of directors.

A 20-year veteran of the luxury hospitality industry, Walshe has held senior management with companies like Jumeirah Group, The Doyle Collection, and Kempinski Hotels & Resorts. As the CEO of The Doyle Collection, Walshe led the brand through its reinvention and expansion to include eleven hotels in the USA and Europe.
