"We're proud of all that we've accomplished over the past nine years here in Atlanta, and
I'm happy about the opportunity to move back to St.Louis, which my family calls home," Hindsley said. "I've known Peter McMahon for some 20 years, and I know he will do a great job. Hyatt as always had a strong commitment to Atlanta, and brought great industry and community leaders to Hyatt Regency Atlanta, and that commitment continues with Peter."
