With effect from 1 October, he will be taking on the positions of Vice President of Jaz in the City and Managing Director of Jaz GmbH. The aim is to launch eight further hotels at significant locations over the next five years. Within the scope of its "2020 Corporate Strategy", Steigenberger Hotels AG is organising itself into four separate business divisions. These are Steigenberger City Hotels, Steigenberger Resort Hotels, InterCityHotels and Jaz in the City. "Hasan Yigit is a true cosmopolitan, who has grown up in two cultural circles and who has lived and worked in both Germany and Turkey," said Puneet Chhatwal, CEO of Steigenberger Hotels AG. "He possesses the necessary expertise to achieve a successful positioning of our third brand as we continue to pursue our policy of international expansion."
