Growth. That’s the remit for Markland Blaiklock, appointed Deputy CEO of Thai accommodation group, Centara Hotels & Resorts. It’s a newly created role for Centara, which wants to double revenue and properties over the next five years.
Centara operates 32 properties in Thailand and has another 67 properties open or under development across 13 countries in Southeast Asia, the Indian Ocean, China, the Middle East and the Caribbean.
Blaiklock knows Centara well. He returns to the company where he was Chief Operating Officer in 2015 and will oversee operations, human resources, sales, marketing, business development and legal services.
The Canadian national will report to Centara’s Chief Executive Officer, Thirayuth Chirativat.
