Movenpick has appointed a new chief development officer in the form of Andrew Langdon who has been the company’s senior vice president for the past two years.
The role is a new position created by the Swiss hospitality management company as part of its continuing efforts to grow and solidify the brand’s position as a leading international hotel operator.
“We are well under way to exceeding our 2020 target with 36 properties planned or under construction to add to the 83 hotels we currently operate, furthermore we are well on the way to reaching our objective of signing up to an additional 20 more hotels and resorts in 2017 alone,” said Langdon.
“Asia will continue to be central to our growth strategy with recent milestones accomplished with the opening of Bali, Indonesia, Colombo, Sri Lanka and Bangkok, Thailand, already this year, with a further five hotels to open in the Philippines, China and three more in Thailand in 2017.”
Milestones for the company in the Middle East this year include two new hotels in Muscat, Oman, and one in Saudi Arabia, where the company already operates 11 hotels with five more in the pipeline.
