Host Hotels Picks New CFO

Bethesda, Md.-based Host Hotels & Resorts (NYSE: HST  ) has a new CFO.

On Monday, Host announced that Larry K. Harvey, its chief financial officer of the past six years, is stepping down from the CFO's post immediately and plans to retire from the company entirely sometime in Q3.

Larson is already in charge of investor relations at Host and has in the past been responsible for management of both the company's treasury and for corporate finance.
