Dubai-based Action Hotels Company (AHC), which operates three and four-star properties throughout the Middle East, has appointed Christophe Landais as CEO.
Landais, former managing director and chief operating officer of Accor in the Middle East, brings more than 30 years of experience in executive hospitality management to AHC. According to the group, he will direct the strategy for its 13-property portfolio, as well as the development pipeline, soon to offer a total of 2,256 rooms.
The new CEO will steer the opening of the group’s next property, the 220-room Novotel Bur Dubai, a four-star, Accor-operated hotel in Dubai Healthcare City.
“Indeed, as Action Hotels owns hospitality real estate, Christophe’s remit will draw on his deep knowledge of designing, developing and operating high-quality, affordable, branded accommodation for today’s discerning, budget-savvy business and leisure travellers,” says His Highness Sheikh Mubarak A. M. Al Sabah, AHC founder and chairman.
Landais confirmed that Novotel Bur Dubai will be ready to take reservations from Thursday August 1.
