Accorhotels has appointed Chris Cahill and Jean-Jacques Morin as deputy CEOs.
Cahill was most recently CEO of luxury brands and CEO for North America, Central America and the Caribbean region. He will now assume the role of deputy CEO responsible for hotel operations. Prior to joining Accorhotels, Cahill held senior leadership roles at Las Vegas Sands Corp and Fairmont Raffles Hotels International.
Meanwhile, Morin was until now CFO and will be the deputy CEO responsible for finance, communications and strategy. Morin began his career at Deloitte before spending 13 years in the international tech sector, and was made CFO at Accorhotels in 2015.
Sebastien Bazin, chairman and CEO of Accorhotels, commented: “The appointments of Chris Cahill and Jean-Jacques Morin as group deputy CEOs alongside deputy CEO Sven Boinet are intended to further improve our operational efficiency and the quality of delivery of the group’s strategy. Following the disposal of the majority of our real estate assets, our organisation now mirrors the challenges of an asset-light model serving the group’s customers and partners and our drive to continue the roll-out of the group’s growth drivers.”
