OMAHA, Neb. - Hilton Worldwide today announced the appointment of Gordon Humbert to the general manager position of Hilton Omaha.

Humbert reports to Area Vice President, Tom Loughlin.

Humbert brings over three decades of hospitality experience to his new role. A native of California, he began his hotel career in 1978 at the Westin Miyako Hotel in San Francisco, holding various food and beverage positions before joining Hilton San Francisco Union Square as convention services manager in 1981.
