Global investment firm Starwood Capital Group named Steven Goldman the CEO of Groupe de Louvre, its France-based portfolio investment holding company. Goldman has been head of global development for Starwood Hotels and Resorts, Hyatt Hotel Corp. and, most recently, Hilton Worldwide. He resigned from Hilton following the corporate espionage lawsuit filed against that company last year by Starwood and was subsequently among the executives named in the suit. He replaces Richard Gomel, who had served as Groupe du Louvre CEO since 2005, and will be based in France.
