Sebastien Bazin

By James Wilkinson at IHIF in Berlin, Germany

Accor’s global CEO Sebastien Bazin has spoken exclusively on video to HM about the company’s record 2014 from an earnings, dividend, cash flow and development perspective, saying the result is thanks to the work of the global team.

In the first of a two-part exclusive video interview, Bazin not only praised the company’s staff worldwide, he also spoke about Accor’s new ‘three year journey’ – something he said he is “convinced it’s going to work” from a management and investment perspective, global growth including Australia and the Asia-Pacific region and much more.
