Jonathan Sheard is new at the helm of Turkish hospitality company, Rixos.
He was appointed chief executive officer of Rixos Hospitality in May this year and has only been in the role a short few months. Joining from French hospitality group, AccorHotels, where he spent the last 10 years, most recently as senior vice president development UK, he is leading the brand’s growth by proactively acquiring new portfolios on a franchise and management basis.
The Rixos Premium Dubai, the third property by Rixos Hotels in the UAE, opened its doors to guests on 24 June, 2017. The company already operates two other hotels in the UAE - Rixos The Palm Dubai, and Rixos Bab Al Bahr, Ras Al Khaimah.
The Turkish operator plans to add another two properties to its portfolio by 2018, in Abu Dhabi and the Maldives. However, Rixos refused to provide any comment about its upcoming plans to Hotelier Middle East.
