Dino Mezzatesta has been appointed Chief Executive Officer of Accor Plus Asia Pacific, AccorHotels’ travel, dining and lifestyle program.
Dino joined AccorHotels in March 2005 as Director of Sales & Marketing for The Menzies Hotel in Sydney. He then moved to Ibis Sydney Airport where he spent almost two years as General Manager. In March 2008, Dino moved to the AccorHotels’ Sydney regional office where he spent the last seven years leading the franchise operations for Australia and New Zealand, whilst also playing a key role in the implementation of the group’s strata business and integration of the strategic Mirvac acquisition.
Dino most recently held the position of Vice President Franchise Operations, overseeing a portfolio of over 70 hotels. In his new role, Dino will bring his sales and management experience to Accor Plus and continue to nurture the entrepreneurial spirit which remains the basis of the success of Accor Plus over the last 21 years.
Accor Plus is a paid membership program of AccorHotels, enabling members to enjoy exclusive discounts and benefits at more than 600 hotels and 800 restaurants across the region. Dino will oversee the program across 17 participating countries.
He replaces Louise Daley, former CEO of Accor Plus who has now been promoted to the position of Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer AccorHotels Asia Pacific.
“I am very excited to take on this role with Accor Plus and provide our 350,000 members with new benefits and new destinations, while also growing the program so that more travellers can experience the very best of AccorHotels,” said Dino.
