The Accor Hotels Group and Novotel Suvarnabhumi Airport Hotel have appointed Mr. Christophe Geoffroy as new General Manager to the 612 room Novotel Suvarnabhumi Airport Hotel – the official airport hotel of Thailand.
Christophe Geoffroy started his hotel career in 1989 as Chef de Rang at Hotel Tahiti Beachcomber in Polynesia. His career eventually brought him to ACCOR with the Ibis Hotels in France as Executive Assistant Manager in charge of Food & Beverages. In 1995, Christophe embarked for Asia as the Resident Manager opening Novotel Toraja as well as Novotel Benoa Bali in Indonesia.
At the age of 31, Christophe became a young General Manager at Novotel Vientiane in Lao P.D.R. and then shifted to work in Accor’s Shanghai Head Office on re-branding projects. As a Resident Manager and General Manager, Sofitel Hyland Shanghai, Novotel Century Harbourview in Hong Kong, and Sofitel Dongguan Royal Lagoon, in China, were his last three hotels before moving to Thailand for the first time.
Mr. Christophe Geoffroy graduated with a Brevet de Technician Hotelier from the Hotel & Tourism School in Marseille, France, specializing in Hotel Management, in 1987.
“Passion and love are two things I have both for the hotel industry and my job, which is now entering its 21st year. I’m glad to be in Thailand and I trust that my expertise, leadership and commitment to excellent guest service will fit in well at the Novotel Suvarnabhumi. I aim to grow and improve customer services as well as set a complementary overall strategy for the owner and ACCOR,” says Mr. Geoffroy.
