LodgeNet Names George L. Rose As Chief Legal Officer

SIOUX FALLS, S.D., April 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- LodgeNet Interactive Corporation, the leading provider of interactive content and connectivity solutions to hospitality and healthcare businesses and the consumers they serve, has named George L. Rose as Chief Legal Officer.


Mr. Rose, formerly Chief Legal Officer of Activision Blizzard, Inc., will lead LodgeNet's corporate legal and business affairs and provide the framework for the Company's compliance and security policies. He will also take an active part in leading the Company's continuing expansion into the healthcare industry.

"George's expertise in finance, content and technology licensing, and M&A law – as well as his general business and legal experience – will be invaluable as LodgeNet evolves to meet the needs of today's customer," said Michael Ribero, LodgeNet CEO.  "As a key member of the Activision team that guided the company through reorganization to become the largest and most profitable entertainment software company in the world, we believe George will help us do the same at LodgeNet."

"I look forward to helping build a strong foundation upon which we can grow the business to its full potential in the coming years," Rose stated. "This is a truly unique opportunity made all the more compelling by the inroads LodgeNet has made in healthcare, for which I have a strong personal affinity.  I am excited to be part of reinventing this company to further enhance its entertainment, connectivity and specific vertical market capabilities in both the hospitality and healthcare spaces."

Mr. Rose has been a practicing attorney, businessman, entrepreneur and consultant for nearly 27 years.  After starting his career in private practice with several prominent law firms specializing in corporate and entertainment law, he joined Activision in the 1990s where he served a number of roles including Executive Vice President, Chief Public Policy Officer and Chief Legal Officer.  He graduated from the University of Michigan and Harvard Law School.

LodgeNet was recently acquired by a syndicate of investors led by Colony Capital LLC, a global real estate investment firm and one of the largest investors in hospitality assets.
