AccorHotels Appoints Michel Molliet Chief Operating Officer, Greater China


Shanghai, China, January 4, 2016 / - Michel Molliet has been appointed Chief Operating Officer of AccorHotels, Greater China, effective January 01, 2016. In his new role, he will oversee the management of the group’s 125 operating hotels and projects in the pipeline across mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau, a portfolio which includes 10 brands from the luxury and upscale to midscale and economy segments.

Formerly Senior Vice President, Luxury and Upscale, AccorHotels Greater China, Michel is a veteran in the hospitality industry having spent close to 30 years with AccorHotels. A French national, he first joined the group in 1987 and was appointed to his first General Manager post in Thailand in 1992.

He left the group for two years to open the 3,000-suite Venetian Resort Hotel in Macau and rejoined AccorHotels in 2008 where he played a pivotal role in the repositioning of the Sofitel brand in Greater China in addition to his role as the General Manager of Sofitel Macau At Ponte 16.

His career highlights include key positions across The Middle East, Southeast Asia and Australia before Greater China.

In October 2014, the French government awarded Michel the “Chevalier de l’Ordre National de la Légion d’Honneur” in recognition of his significant achievements in overseas promotion of French tourism, culture and business.

Michel takes over from the group’s former COO, Paul Richardson, who will be the Chief Commercial Officer, Greater China, leading the partnership with China Lodging.

“I am very excited to take on this role as the leader of AccorHotels Greater China at a time where the Group is embarking on a new era to develop growth opportunities with immense potential,” said Michel Molliet. “I look forward to working closely with the corporate and sub-regional teams in Shanghai and Macau to accelerate our hotel developments to new levels and expand our brands in the region.”
