Dim­itris Manikis will be re­spon­si­ble for the de­vel­op­ment of all of Wyn­d­ham Ho­tel Group’s brands in the EMEA re­gion as well as max­imis­ing the per­for­mance of all new and ex­ist­ing fran­chise and man­aged ho­tels. He will fo­cus on driv­ing the strate­gic ob­jec­tives of Wyn­d­ham Ho­tel Group in­clud­ing qual­ity and tech­nol­ogy so­lu­tions as well as loy­alty, sales and mar­ket­ing.

“The EMEA re­gion has a di­verse hos­pi­tal­ity land­scape and is wit­ness­ing ex­cit­ing trends such as the emer­gence of new feeder mar­kets, a younger de­mo­graphic and fast-paced tech­nol­ogy adop­tion. With our fo­cus on pro­vid­ing ev­ery­day trav­ellers with a breadth of choice, we have ce­mented our repu- tation as the in­dus­try leader,” said Bob Loewen, Wyn­d­ham Ho­tel Group’s chief op­er­at­ing of­fi­cer. “Dim­itris’ wealth of ex­pe­ri­ence in the shared own­er­ship in­dus­try and strong re­la­tion­ships with hos­pi­tal­ity providers across EMEA make him an ideal pro­fes­sional to lead our op­er­a­tions in this rapidly grow­ing re­gion.”

Wyn­d­ham Ho­tel Group ex­panded its foot­print across EMEA with a num­ber of sig­nif­i­cant open­ings through­out 2017, bring­ing the to­tal num­ber of ho­tels across the re­gion to nearly 470.

“I am look­ing for­ward to strength­en­ing the op­er­a­tions and foot­print of Wyn­d­ham Ho­tel Group in EMEA, a re­gion I have been as­so­ci­ated with for nearly three decades. With the ro­bust per­for­mance of the in­dus­try in sev­eral key mar­kets in EMEA last year, the po­ten­tial for Wyn­d­ham Ho­tel Group to ex­pand its op­er­a­tions fur­ther in the re­gion is tremen­dous,” said Manikis.
