PARIS, France — AccorHotels has added three executives to its team.
Greg Doman is the new SVP of Development, North and Central America and Luxury Hotels Americas & Residential; Francois Baudin has been named SVP of Development, Luxury Hotels Europe, Middle East and Africa; and Laure Morvan joins the team as VP of Development, Luxury Hotels ASPAC.
In their new roles, Doman, Baudin and Morvan will report to Gaurav Bhushan — global chief development officer at AccorHotels. With these new appointments, AccorHotels aims to align the development team with the new global organization formed following the acquisition of FRHI and the creation of the luxury division, overseen by Chris Cahill.
“The integration of FRHI makes AccorHotels a worldwide leader in the luxury segment,” says Bhushan. “As the group enters this new exciting adventure, we have set ourselves ambitious targets across all regions to enhance our network in this segment. The luxury-development teams led by Greg, François and Laure will combine their expertise together with the knowledge and network of our regional development teams worldwide to expand our luxury and upscale brands portfolio and strengthen our leadership in this segment.”
Greg Doman has been with FRHI for 13 years and comes to his new role with a broad knowledge in both luxury hotels and branded-residential development. In his new role, he will work closely with Abel Castro, SVP of Development, South America. He will also be in charge of the branded residential business on a global scale.
Francois Baudin worked at FRHI for nine years and helped expand the company’s leading luxury network and pipeline in the Middle East. In his new position, he will provide AccorHotels with his solid expertise in the development of luxury hotels.
Laure Morvan has been with AccorHotels for more than 10 years. She has prior experience as director of Development in the Middle East and the Asia Pacific regions, where she gained an outstanding reputation for developing AccorHotels luxury and upscale networks in both regions.
