Skift Live

Salamander Hotels & Resorts Founder and CEO, Sheila Johnson, Added to SGF Lineup

We are thrilled to welcome Sheila Johnson, Founder and CEO of Salamander Hotels & Resorts, to this Skift Global Forum stage this September.

Johnson, a cofounder of Black Entertainment Television (BET), sold the cable station to Viacom for $3 billion and also holds stakes in three Washington, D.C., professional sports teams NBA Wizards, WNBA Mystics, and NHL Capitals. As a entrepreneur in hospitality, Johnson has been steadily expanding her luxury hotel empire, adding three properties in the past half-year to bring Salamander’s portfolio to seven, as Skift Senior Hospitality Editor Sean O’Neill wrote in a profile on Johnson last fall.

Join us for this fireside chat with Sheila Johnson during Skift Global Forum, as well as many other discussions with travel leaders September 26-28 in New York City. Secure your pass today:
