“I’m pleased to welcome Erwann Mahe to our leadership team in APAC,” said Best Western Hotels & Resorts President and Chief Executive Officer David Kong. “Our industry has suffered greatly in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and as an organization, we are committed to supporting our hoteliers in their recovery. I believe that Erwann’s deep regional expertise and strategic thinking will deliver tremendous value to our hoteliers in Asia as we navigate the years ahead.”

Erwann Mahe joins the Best Western Hotels & Resorts team with over 23 years of industry knowledge – his prior roles range from managing large-scale Accor hotels to holding executive-level positions, including Chief Operations Officer at Red Planet Hotels and Executive Vice President of Hotel Investment at The Erawan Group.

In his new role, Erwann Mahe will be responsible for all aspects of operating Best Western Hotels & Resorts in the region and will focus his efforts on supporting hoteliers through the upcoming recovery and expanding the brand’s portfolio of hotels throughout APAC. He replaces Olivier Berrivin who previously served in the role. Berrivin remains with the BWH Hotel Group parent company in his new position as Managing Director of WorldHotels APAC.
