Scott Allen was named general manager of the 297-room Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort last month.
A 28-year Hyatt veteran, Allen served most recently as the general manager at the Park Hyatt Aviara in Carlsbad, Calif.
“In addition to his strong business acumen and leadership skills, Scott brings his great sense of community and passion to the Maui and Wailea area,” Marc Ellin, the senior vice president of field operations for Hyatt Hotels & Resorts, said in a statement.
A married father of five, Allen started his career with Hyatt in 1986 at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress in Orlando.
The 15-acre beachfront Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort opened in 2013.
