Sebastien counts over 20 years' experience in hospitality, primarily with ACCOR, in senior management positions across Europe, Middle East, Africa and most recently Latin America.
He has an MBA in International Hospitality Management from Cornell and ESSEC University and speaks fluent English and Portuguese in addition to his mother tongue, French.
Sebastien will be responsible for all our hotels in France and Belgium. As such, Gaston Gellens as District Director, Belgium, reports directly to Sebastien. The Spanish hotels continue to report to Pat Cussen.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Gaston for his commitment and invaluable support over the last six months in assisting with the management of the Western Europe portfolio.
