PASCAL DUCHAUFFOUR

AREA VICE PRESIDENT, EUROPE, MIDDLE EAST & AFRICA, THE RITZ-CARLTON HOTEL COMPANY

Moving on from his position as general manager of the Ritz-Carlton, Dubai International Financial Centre, with regional oversight for Ritz-Carlton properties in the Gulf and Egypt, Pascal Duchauffour is now area vice president responsible for Ritz-Carlton, Bulgari and Edition brands in the EMEA region.

A French national, Duchauffour has been in the Middle East since 2003 when he arrived from Singapore to take over the Ritz-Carlton Bahrain, moving to Dubai later to supervise the launch of the Ritz-Carlton at DIFC earlier this year.

Here, he also took on an area role, brokering the management deal for the Al Bustan Palace in Muscat that was finalised in July, as well as heading up expansion plans that will take in the Ritz-Carlton Riyadh and the Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi, Grand Canal, as well as hotels in Cairo, and Tamuda Bay and Rabat in Morocco.

A Ritz-Carlton veteran, Duchaffour worked for the group in San Francisco for six years and also gained extensive experience working in Asia, spending two years as the manager of the Ritz-Carlton Millennia Singapore as well as an opening role at Ritz-Carlton hotel launches in Beijing, Seoul, Kuala Lumpur and Double Bay in Australia.
