New General Manager for Hyatt Regency in Huntington Beach

Jon Benson succeeds Peter Rice; both longtime Hyatt execs

Jon Benson has been appointed the new general manager of Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort & Spa.

Benson succeeds Peter Rice who retired earlier this month after 38 years with Hyatt Hotels Corp. (NYSE: H) and 10 years at the local property.

The appointment marks a return to Huntington Beach for Benson, who previously worked as director of food & beverage for two and a half years and led the opening of the resort’s Watertable restaurant in 2014.

Benson sports his own 35-year career with Hyatt having held positions in 13 different hotels and was most recently the general manager at the Hana-Maui Resort. He also counts five years as Hyatt’s corporate director of culinary operations after spending 20 years prior as executive chef across several hotels.

Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort & Spa is ranked as the eighth largest hotel in Orange County with 519 rooms.
