WORLDHOTELS has promoted Mr. Robert Hornman, from the position of Vice President EMEA & Worldwide Sales, Marketing and Distribution, to Managing Director.

He will take over all responsibilities from Michael Ball, who after eight years as CEO will move to the Supervisory Board of WORLDHOTELS and continue his role as Managing Director of I.H.S., the parent company of WORLDHOTELS. Also promoted to the Management Board was Sven Larsen, the company's CFO.

Hornman has been with WORLDHOTELS since September 2008 as Vice President EMEA & Worldwide Sales, Marketing and Distribution. Previously, he served in a number of senior positions at Accor, including Vice President Sales and Marketing Asia, as well as Vice President Global Sales and Business Development in the companys head office in Paris.

Michael Ball said, Since joining us, Robert has quickly established a strong team for the EMEA region and worked successfully to keep WORLDHOTELS focused on maintaining existing revenue streams and securing additional ones in what has proved to be a challenging year. We are very pleased with the new company structure and I believe that we have the necessary expertise to continue our path of growth.

I am looking forward to implementing our growth strategy further and expanding our unique portfolio of upmarket independent hotels, especially in the business travel and MICE sector, added Robert Hornman. This year, we saw growing demand from independent hotels requesting affiliation and we have already added 39 new affiliate hotels in 2009 to date. New additions include the six hotels of the renowned UK brand City Inn. WORLDHOTELS is perfectly positioned to take advantage of the many opportunities the market has to offer and to support affiliate hotels and clients in growing their business, especially in challenging times like these.
