KSL Resorts Names New CEO

Greg Kennealey to oversee hospitality group’s 45-property portfolio

Irvine-based hotel owner and operator KSL Resorts has appointed Greg Kennealey as its newest chief executive.  

Kennealey takes over the role from Co-Founder Scott Dalecio, who will remain a senior advisor to KSL and become executive chairman of Outrigger Resorts & Hotels, which KSL acquired in 2016.  

Kennealey holds nearly 30 years of experience in business development and hospitality. His first hospitality role was VP of asset management at Strategic Hotels & Resorts in 2006. 

The executive then spent 10 years as principal and head of hospitality at KSL Capital Partners before heading the firm’s Colorado-based Mission Hill Hospitality in 2021. He will continue to be CEO of Mission Hill as he leads KSL.  

“I look forward to collaborating with our very talented team as we focus on expanding our portfolio as well as working to boost operational efficiencies and innovation,” he said in a statement.  

KSL manages 45 properties across the U.S. and was behind Orange County’s largest-ever hotel sale: the 400-room Monarch Beach Resort which traded at the end of 2019 for almost $500 million.
