Based in Sofitel Macau At Ponte 16, Mr. Aleks oversees over 40 properties both in operation and under development across south China, including the luxury and upscale brands of Sofitel, Pullman and MGallery by Sofitel, as well as Grand Mercure and AccorHotels in Hong Kong.

Mr. Aleks started working with AccorHotels in 1995 in Germany and specializes in the Sofitel brand. He has grown together with AccorHotels Group properties around the world, opening and managing Sofitel Khao Lak in Thailand from 2002  before moving on to Sofitel in Paris in 2005. He has since been General Manager at a series of properties in Australia: Novotel Langley Perth, Sofitel Gold Coast, and Sofitel Brisbane.

Mr. Aleks moved to Asia to launch and run Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila for three years before his most recent role as Area General Manager Sofitel Indonesia and General Manager Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua.

With over two decades of experience in hotel operations and revenue management, Mr. Aleks sees his roles as Vice President Operations and General Manager not only as that of a leader, but also a motivator at the heart of what drives the entire team forward in offering excellent performance that always exceeds expectations.

“I am excited about the challenge ahead that this new position offers along with the extensive responsibility,” said Mr. Aleks. “It is great to be based at the beautiful Sofitel Macau At Ponte 16 and I look forward to building on the hotel’s success while overseeing the South China region.”

“AccorHotels has a wealth of key openings in this region including Sofitel Kunming, Sofitel Sanya Leeman Resort, Pullman Guang’An Resort and Pullman Dongguan Dalang all by 2015 – plus 11 other projects in the pipeline to be opened by 2017. Together with my team I look forward to driving the future growth and positioning of AccorHotels across South China.”
