Hilton has appointed Sabu Raghavan as Vice President, Human Resources, India. With over two decades of experience in human resources in the education and hospitality industry, Raghavan joined Hilton in 2011 and was most recently based in Singapore where he oversaw human resources for Southeast Asia and India.

Raghvan’s new role will see him focusing exclusively on India, working closely with Hilton’s leadership team to drive culture and talent development among Hilton team members.

With India’s travel and tourism sector continuing to show significant growth potential, Hilton has appointed more than 10 senior leaders from across industries in the last two years to lead different functions and roles in India. The company also moved into new custom designed offices in Gurgaon earlier this year as it continues to invest in expanding its business and hiring the best industry talent
Based in the Gurugram office in India, Raghavan will report to Lara Hernandez, Senior Vice President, Human Resources, Asia Pacific and will work closely with the India Leadership team and lead the HR strategy for India.
