Switzerland's Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has appointed Andrew Langdon as global chief development officer. The move comes amid the company’s efforts to expand the brand’s global presence, especially in Asia.

Mövenpick expects Langdon to drive growth and expansion in key markets across Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Europe. It plans to meet its global vision of operating more than 100 properties by 2020.

Langdon joined Mövenpick two years ago as SVP Asia. He spearheaded a period of expansion with nine currently operating hotels and 20 more in Mövenpick’s pipeline. Before his time at Mövenpick, Langdon maintained a position as EVP at JLL Hotels and Hospitality Group in Asia.

Asia locations currently in Mövenpick’s pipeline include signed deals in Oman and the Maldives.

In collaboration with Oman’s Civil Services Employees Pension Fund, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts signed the opening of its first property in Muscat in March of this year. The company intends the 274-room Mövenpick Hotel & Apartments Al Azaiba Muscat to support Oman’s vastly growing tourism industry.  

Mövenpick Resort & Spa Kuredhivaru Maldives in Noonu Atoll is the the group’s first resort in the Maldives. During the signing of the resort in late April, Langdon said, "It’s no secret that the Maldives is a much-sought-after holiday destination that is still increasing in popularity.”

In response to this growing demand, the company plans to open the luxury resort in the second quarter of 2018. The ultra-exclusive will include 33 beach villas and 72 over-water villas.
