In his new role, Deschamps will oversee revenue optimization, focusing on the effectiveness of Carlson Hotels' industry-leading tools and programs to drive greater revenues and market share.

His responsibilities will include hotel pricing strategies, demand forecasting, program development, and hotel revenue optimization support.

Deschamps' appointment supports Carlson Hotels' Ambition 2015 growth strategy, the company's initiative to expand its portfolio to more than 1,500 hotels around the world by 2015. Korallus noted that a key priority of the strategy focuses on revenue generation, which involves growth in international sales; growth in revenue generated by the company's brand websites; expansion and strengthening of goldpoints plusSM, Carlson Hotels' global loyalty program; and the deployment of Carlson Hotels' best practice revenue optimization capabilities.

He will also direct the final stage of implementation for Carlson Hotels' industry- leading Stay Night Automated Pricing system (SNAP) in 2010 with a global roll-out to follow.

Prior to coming to Carlson Hotels, Deschamps held a variety of leadership positions in revenue management, international marketing and sales, and finance and administration.
