Current Capital Appoints Kenneth Siegel, Another Proven Senior Executive, to Its Advisory Board
April 4, 2019
Current Capital Partners LLC announced that Kenneth Siegel, an experienced senior leader in the hospitality industry, has joined its Advisory Board.
Mr. Siegel recently led Diamond Resorts’ repositioning as an experiential travel company from a traditional real estate focused timeshare operation. As President and a member of the Board of Directors, Mr. Siegel play a key role in rebuilding all facets of the business, including corporate strategy, hotel operations, marketing, legal and finance.
Prior to Diamond, he was Chief Administrative Officer and General Counsel of Starwood Hotels & Resorts. As a senior member of the Starwood leadership team for more than a decade, Mr. Siegel was very involved in Starwood’s emergence as an industry leader prior to its acquisition by Marriott International in 2016. In addition to his legal and administrative responsibilities, he played a pivotal role in Starwood’s transition to an asset-light business and was the architect of transactions that drove both top- and bottom-line benefits.
Prior to joining Starwood, Mr. Siegel spent four years as the Senior Vice President and General Counsel of Cognizant Corporation, a multinational information services company originally comprised of IMS Health Inc., Nielsen Media Research and The Gartner Group.
