AccorHotels is the story of two friends, Paul Dubrule and Gérard Pélisson, who opened their first Novotel in the 1960s after travelling to the United States. Throughout the years, they have built over the years a renowned global hotel group, thanks to their creativity and their audacity.
Headquartered in Issy-les-Moulineaux (Paris), the group gathers 25 brands, which operates in 100 countries. In addition to managing more than 4,500 hotels, residences and other resorts adapted to all budgets (from premium lines such as Fairmont, Sofitel, Pullman or to intermediate lines such as Mercure, Novotel or Ibis), the company is also dedicated to the rental of private properties and coworking spaces and hotel-related services such as concierge services, event management and the implementation of digital solutions.
The company, listed on Euronext, is managed by Sébastien Bazin and is made up of 250,000 talents who invent the future of the hotel business and live their passion for hospitality.
Fun Fact 😌: did you know that AccorHotels has developed an executive committee for people under 35? Following its ambition to move towards new horizons and change the established norms, the group has decided to allow its youngest employees to participate in this renewal. This Generation Y committee addresses the same issues as the Executive Committee and embodies the modernity of AccorHotels’ leadership.
In line with its commitment to innovation, AccorHotels participates in the Operation Grow Together in order to direct SMEs to diversifying sources of financing. The group is showing the way and has borrowed €100,000 at 24 months on the platform on November 22nd, 2018!
And it is not the only one, 10 other major groups will borrow in the coming days for a total amount of 1,000,000€ 🚀.
