Paul Stevens has been appointed Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of AccorHotels’ travel, dining and lifestyle program, Accor Plus.

Stevens began with AccorHotels in Australia in 1997, holding several General Manager positions before leaving the group in 2004 to pursue other interests. He rejoined the group in 2005 as opening General Manager of Sofitel Fiji before moving to Bangkok in 2007 to lead the Hotel Operations for the group’s Thailand hotels. From 2014, Paul assumed his most recent role of Vice President Operations for the midscale and economy brands, Upper Southeast Asia.

In his new role, Stevens would bring his passion for food and beverage and loyalty together with his management experience to help grow the Accor Plus business across the region.

“I look forward to taking the Accor Pus program to the next level so our members can continue to experience, explore, taste and enjoy the very best of AccorHotels across the region,” said Stevens.

Accor Plus, a subsidiary of Accor Hotels, is Asia Pacific’s most expansive travel, dining and lifestyle program. The Accor Plus was first established in Sydney and it has since grown to 45 offices in 11 countries across Asia Pacific.
