LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) --  Mary Moseley is no longer the president and chief executive officer of the Al J. Schneider Co., a position she had held for at least 13 years.

The move is an apparent result of the feud that erupted earlier this year among the family members who own the company.

The Schneider Co. has hundreds of millions of dollars in assets, including the Galt House hotel downtown, the Crowne Plaza Louisville Airport and the Waterfront Plaza and One Riverfront Plaza office buildings.

Scott T. Shoenberger, the company’s former chief operating officer, has been promoted to president and CEO, according to a press release issued Wednesday.

The announcement did not mention Moseley.

In an email, Schneider Co. spokeswoman  Amanda Lambert thanked Moseley for her service and said she would remain a member of the company’s board.

Moseley has not responded to inquiries about her status with the company over the last few weeks, and her Schneider Co. email address was inactive on Wednesday.

On May 31, a five-person trust set up by Schneider before his death in 2001 expired, and control of the Schneider Co. shifted to about 20 Schneider children, grandchildren and spouses.

Moseley’s change in status at the company was foreshadowed last month when she filed legal challenges seeking to disqualify the law firms that the Schneider Co. had hired to represent the company in a dispute with Eric Bachelor, majority owner of the Embassy Suites hotel downtown.

According to court records, Moseley and her sister Dawn Hitron remain locked in a legal battle with their other sisters, Nancy O’Hearn and Christe Coe.

Moseley and Hitron sued O’Hearn and Coe in June for derailing a $135 million sale of the Galt House to Columbia Sussex Corp. of Northern Kentucky.

The Schneider Co. had planned to close the sale before the trust ran out at the end of May and control shifted to the broader family, but the plan fell apart after Coe and O’Hearn went to court to stop it.

Meanwhile, Bachelor sued the Schneider Co. in late May over alleged mismanagement of the Embassy Suites, which he co-owns with the company.

Schoenberger has “more than two decades of executive hospitality management experience,” according to the Schneider Co. press release.

He moved to Louisville in 2014 from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where he worked for Marcus Hotels & Resorts, according to the press release.
