Executive vice president and chief financial officer Jay Johnson will step down from his role at Bethesda, Maryland-based DiamondRock Hospitality Company, effective August 31. He will join Lamar Advertising Company as chief financial officer. Johnson served at DiamondRock since April 1, 2018.

"We appreciate all of Jay's contributions to DiamondRock," says Mark Brugger, president and ceo. "We understand his decision to pursue a new opportunity at a larger company and closer to his hometown in Louisiana. We wish him the best in his new role."

The Company expects to name a new chief financial officer before Johnson's departure.
