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. Prior to The Doyle Collection, Walshe served as Chief Marketing Officer for Dubai based Jumeirah Group at a time of tremendous growth for the international luxury hospitality group.
 
Walshe assumes his new role as Viceroy is starting to substantially expand: Year to date, the group has added three new properties in the Maldives, New York City and San Francisco, and recently announced the opening of Viceroy Istanbul in 2013 and Viceroy Bodrum in 2014, for a total of eighteen hotels under management by the group worldwide.
