Rezidor boss breaks into the top 10 after a record year for signings in 2014. the company is on track to achieve another record-breaking performance this year, with a focus on Saudi arabia and the UAE.
Having been in the Middle East now for 13 years with its core brands, the upscale Radisson Blu and long-stay Park Inn, the Rezidor Group had a record year for signings in 2014, under the regional leadership of Mark Willis, with the addition of 12 new hotels.
Now with 35 hotels operational, and 38 in the pipeline, Rezidor is considering opportunities for new brands announced last year, Radisson Red and Quorvus, and is going full steam ahead with its Saudi pipeline, having signed a master development agreement with local owner Al Hokair Group in October 2014, for 30 new hotels.
“I am inspired by our President and CEO Wolfgang M Neumann because he has taken a great company and made it even better. Under his leadership we have seen a new focus and real commitment to everything we do from the environment, to our commercial development and very importantly our people. I consider myself very fortunate to be part of the company’s development and progress as an international hospitality brand, watching it grow into something very special”.
