Hyatt Appoints Leader for Europe, Africa and Middle East Region

Hyatt Hotels Corporation in the present day introduced a management change positioning Hyatt for continued strategic development within the Europe, Africa & Middle East (EAME) area.

Javier Águila has been appointed incoming group president EAME, following the deliberate retirement of Peter Fulton who seems again on a formidable 39-year profession at Hyatt. Águila and Fulton will work collectively by a clean and considerate transition and Águila will formally assume the position within the subsequent a number of months.

“The Hyatt family is grateful for Peter’s leadership and impact throughout a career that spans almost four decades and three global regions. In his latest role as group president, EAME/SWA, which Peter assumed in 2013, he has presided over operational excellence and unprecedented growth for the region,” stated Chuck Floyd, international president of operations, Hyatt.

Águila is an inside successor, hailing from Apple Leisure Group (ALG), which Hyatt acquired in 2021. He most not too long ago served as ALG’s group president, AMResorts Europe and Global Strategy. Águila joined ALG in 2019 as a part of the acquisition of Alua Hotels & Resorts, which Águila based and led as chief government officer. Águila brings a broad set of experiences and views knowledgeable by greater than 20 years in hospitality, tourism, non-public fairness and strategic consulting.

“Javier’s appointment is yet another milestone in bringing Hyatt and ALG’s joint vision to life,” continues Floyd. “Adding ALG to our portfolio increased Hyatt’s European brand footprint by 60% and I am confident Javier is the ideal candidate to continue the region’s positive trajectory and lead the team to new heights.”

This transition comes with a deliberate geographic realignment for the area, transferring oversight of the Indian subcontinent underneath the management of David Udell, group president Asia Pacific, primarily based in Hong Kong. Udell’s immense expertise main the Asia Pacific area since 2014 units Hyatt up for continued development within the Indian subcontinent.

Hyatt not too long ago reported its fifth straight 12 months of industry-leading web rooms development, with a world pipeline of 113,000 rooms, equal to roughly 40 % of Hyatt’s current rooms base.
