BlueBay Hotels, the eighth Spanish hotel chain with international presence and the eleventh biggest by number of rooms, has inducted 4 new professions to manage different areas of the company to reinforce its structure. In the next few weeks, a new operations manager will also be introduced. The growth registered by BlueBay Hotels in the first semester of the fiscal year, and the expansion objectives of the Spanish company considered in the 2017-2020 strategic plan are two of the motives that Blue Bay Hotels took into account in order to effect these additions.
The group's growth this year resulted from their joining new markets as well as strengthening their presence in destinations where they were already established. In addition, the goal of the company to increase their hotel offers by almost 50%, which meant being present in new destinations and providing new beds both owned as well as managed, made it necessary for them to make this commitment clear and firm to boost the group's structure.
According to Jamal Satli Iglesias, president of BlueBay Hotels, "aside from increasing the manpower in various departments, with these new inductions, we are bolstering the management team. They are professionals with excellent backgrounds, and we are convinced that they will bring this know-how, each to their areas of expertise, in order to boost the ambitious future projects of BlueBay Hotels".
