Swiss-Belhotel International (SBI) has promoted Herve Peyre to the position of area general manager for Bahrain.

Making the announcement, Laurent A. Voivenel, senior vice president, operations and development for the Middle East, Africa and India for Swiss-Belhotel International, said, “We are delighted to promote Herve Peyre as the area general manager for Bahrain where he, with his team, has so successfully positioned Swiss-Belhotel Seef Bahrain as a market leader and winner of several accolades including the ‘Best 4-Star Hotel in GCC’ at Food & Travel Awards for two consecutive years, 2016-17.
“This latest development is part of our strategy to strengthen our management team in key growth markets such as Bahrain where we have extensive expansion. We will be tripling our inventory of rooms in the Kingdom this year with the opening of two new hotels early next year namely Grand Swiss-Belresort, a 5-star luxury resort and Seef Swiss-Belresidences Juffair, an upper midscale hotel apartment complex. We are confident Herve, with his strong international and regional experience, is the ideal candidate to support our operations on the ground.”
