Carlson CEO Trudy Rautio will
retire in May after almost 18 years with the Minnesota-based travel and hospitality company.
Upon Rautio’s retirement, Carlson will be split into hospitality and travel
divisions. Chief Operating Officer David Berg will become CEO of Carlson
Hospitality, while Doug Anderson will lead Carlson Travel. Anderson has been CEO of travel management firm Carlson Wagonlit since
Rautio was named Carlson’s CEO in
2012. The closely held company’s Carlson Rezidor hotel company includes the
Radisson, Radisson Blu, Park Inn and Country Inns & Suites brands as well as the newer
Radisson Red and Quorvus Collection badges.
