Cycas Hospitality set to open its first two French properties this autumn. This hospitality industry lead has appointed five regional experts across France and Germany in recent weeks to further accelerate its European growth.
The French recruitment drive follows the appointment of Luc Vicherd as Regional General Manager earlier this year, with three new team members reporting directly into him from Hyatt’s first dual-branded property in mainland Europe.
Béatrice Puma joined Cycas in April as the company’s first Director of Sales for France, and will be a key part of the pre-opening team for the double-decker Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotel at Charles De Gaulle Airport. With over ten years’ hospitality experience, including six focused on the Charles de Gaulle and Roissy region, Béatrice is well placed to capitalise on the growing market for aparthotels around the airport, of which Hyatt House will be the first.
The French team is further strengthened by the appointment of Operations Directors for each of its two new Paris properties. Looking after Hyatt House Paris Charles De Gaulle Airport, Nicolas Dubas previously spent eight years working for Cycas’s first dual-branded hotel in London and graduated last December from the company’s in-house ‘Cyfari’ leadership development programme. Pierre Brochard, meanwhile has spent eight years working across Hyatt properties throughout Europe and the Middle East. He joins as Operations Director for the Hyatt Place from Hôtel du Louvre, where he has worked as Front Office Manager for the last two years.
Announcing the appointments, Matt Luscombe, CEO of Cycas Hospitality, said that for Cycas to grow successfully across Europe, they need to attract the very best talent to support our ambitions. He is excited to see what Daniel, Katrin, Béatrice, Nicolas and Pierre will achieve in their new roles.
