CHI CEO Tony Potter said, ďThis key strategic appointment for Africa and the Middle East, together with the recent appointment of Stefan Buchs as Regional Vice President for Western & Central Europe, completes our senior management restructure, which we have been carefully implementing over the last 12 months. We strongly believe in promoting from within whenever possible, as this ensures that Corinthiaís renowned hospitality values and traditions, honed over the last 45 years, remain very much alive and are embraced by all our properties and team members in the various destinations. This is crucial to a company like ours that has huge ambitions and high aspirations of becoming a leading multi- brand hotel operator worldwide.Ē

As well as being a competent operator, Salvinuís early career began on a solid footing in finance and he held numerous senior financial positions with CHI and the Corinthia Group over the last 20 years. These included key roles at the CHI Headquarters in Floriana, Malta, where he was an Operations Analyst and Financial Controller for Corinthia Hotels. He holds a BA (Hons) in Accountancy from the University Of Malta, is a certified public accountant and a member of the Malta Institute of Accountants.

Commenting on his new role Salvinu said, ďI have been working in Africa for the past ten years now and this appointment comes at a time when my experience and understanding of local issues will be very helpful to CHI as we seek to face the immediate challenges posed by the current global economic climate. I will also be looking for opportunities to expand CHI Hotels & Resorts' portfolio of hotels in these areas.Ē

CHIís portfolio in Africa and the Middle East includes the five-star Corinthia Bab Africa Hotel in Tripoli, Libya, the Ramada Plaza Tunis in Tunisia and the Atlantic Hotel in The Gambia.

Other hotels currently under development include the 820-room, twin property, Corinthia Beach Resort in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt; the 250-room Ramada Abu Dhabi Mafraq Hotel in Abu Dhabi; the 274-room Corinthia Hotel Algiers in Algeria; the 371 all suite Ramada Hotel Jumeirah Beach in Dubai; the 360-room Corinthia Hotel Benghazi in Libya and the 418-room Wyndham Port Lixus Resort in Morocco.
