Accor, a world-leading augmented hospitality group with over 420 hotels across India, Middle East, Africa and Turkey, has appointed Philip Mahoney as Vice President of Food & Beverage for India, Middle East, Africa and Turkey, with the main responsibility to drive the group’s strategy in the region: making food and drink the heart and soul of each of its hotels.

 

Throughout his 30-year career, Philip has managed hotels in the UK, Croatia and Mauritius for Malmaison, Lonrho, De Vere Deluxe, Radisson Blu and Regent Hotels, before moving into a regional responsibility for Radisson Blu and Hotel Missoni in the UK and Ireland. He then became Vice President Food & Drink for the Radisson Hotel Group for Europe, Middle East and Africa, with an overseeing role for the US and Asia Pacific, based in Brussels, Belgium, a position he held for 6 years.

 

His last role was Chief Operating Officer for Riverstone, a Goldman Sachs portfolio company developing luxury apartments and hospitality experiences in London, UK, before moving to Dubai to take on his current post.

 “We are very pleased to have welcomed Philip Mahoney as our new Vice-President for Food & Beverage,” says Mark Willis, CEO of Accor India, Middle East, Africa & Turkey. “As the leading hospitality group in the region, it comes only naturally to put F&B at the forefront of our strategy for 2022 and the upcoming years, we couldn’t think of a better person than Philip to take the lead!”

 

Philip Mahoney’s strategy for the group rests on delivering the promise of Accor’s brands for its guests through product and concept development, including overseeing restaurant, bar and event space design for new hotels and renovations, alongside contributing to Accor’s sustainability commitments.

 

Moreover, he will work on driving added value for hotel owners through marketing, pricing and cost optimisation initiatives, as well as leveraging concept implementation opportunities through Accor’s portfolio of restaurant brands and partner operators and finally; cultivating the talent of Accor colleagues through broad-ranging learning programmes and the many development opportunities which the region has.

 “I am very pleased to join Accor on this journey and I truly believe we can take big steps forward to enhance F&B across our hotels in the region,” says Philip Mahoney, Vice President of Food & Beverage for Accor India, Middle East, Africa & Turkey”. “In our industry, creating great experiences for customers is our priority and working hand in hand with colleagues is essential in creating these!” 

Accor currently operates 422 properties (92,104 keys) across India, Middle East, Africa & Turkey with another 217 properties (50,063 keys) in the pipeline.
