AMIT SRIPATHI NAMED WYNDHAM’S CHIEF DEVELOPMENT OFFICER

WYNDHAM HOTELS & RESORTS recently named Amit Sripathi as chief development officer, taking over from Chip Ohlsson, who exits the company in June. Sripathi,
who previously was Wyndham’s senior vice president of strategic and corporate development, will head the company’s North American franchise sales team.

Before his tenure at Wyndham, he served as vice president of finance and capital markets at RLJ Lodging Trust, and as vice president of global investment banking
at Deutsche Bank, Wyndham said in a statement.

“Amit’s deep experience in mergers and acquisitions and capital markets focused on the real estate and hospitality sectors at Deutsche Bank and RLJ Lodging are
instrumental as we increase our focus on growing our midscale-and-above portfolio while reinforcing our leading position in the resilient select-service segments,”
said Geoff Ballotti, Wyndham’s president and CEO. “Since joining Wyndham, Amit has demonstrated a strategic approach to growth. He’s helped divest our owned and
managed segments leading to a pure-play U.S. franchise business and worked with our sales teams across the country and around the world deploying over $250 million
in development support for our owners. He hits the ground running, knowing what our franchise sales teams need to continue outperforming expectations.”
