April 23, 2019 Hotel Trends No Comments Email Email

Stephanie Ricca has been promoted to editorial director of Hotel News Now, a division of STR.

Ricca joined the team at HNN in January 2015 and has served as the digital outlet’s editor-in-chief since the fall of 2015. Her resume includes 12 years of hotel trade publication experience, including nine as an editor-in-chief, and she often serves as a moderator at industry conferences.

“Stephanie has proven herself to be an effective leader with the vision to take Hotel News Now to the next level,” said Amanda Hite, STR’s president and CEO. “Stephanie’s track record as a journalist speaks for itself and has enabled her to develop key connections with those around the industry. She will continue to lead content initiatives for HNN while also increasing her presence at industry conferences.”

Ricca is a product of Wittenberg University and the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University.

“I’m honored to take on this role and excited to carry on the standard of excellence built by our team over the years,” Ricca said. “In the 10 short years since its launch, Hotel News Now has become the leading source for credible news coverage of the global hotel industry. The team that we have in place and the support of an incredible parent company has me especially confident in the future of HNN.”

Ricca succeeds Jeff Higley, who is leaving the STR enterprise to pursue a new opportunity.
