(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) The company recently underwent management changes, which saw co-founder, Selim El Zyr pass the lead on to Omer Kaddouri, the new president and CEO of Rotana. El Zyr will continue to serve in an advisory role as the vice-chairman of the board. Kaddouri, the former executive vice president and chief operating officer had his own role taken over by Guy Hutchinson, who moves to Rotana from his previous role as vice-president of operations in India for Hilton

El Zyr has headed the company since he co-founded it in 1992 together with Nasser Al Nowais, chairman of Rotana. His ambitious managerial direction is credited with building Rotana's extensive portfolio, which currently stands at 85 properties although the company already has close to 97 properties on its books

Ongoing innovations at Rotana were aggressively driven by El Zyr, including a pioneering moveinto innovative new products and services such as the introduction of the Arjaan Hotel Apartments by Rotana, Centro Hotels by Rotana and Rayhaan Hotels & Resorts by Rotana concepts, and key partnerships forged with some of the world's most respected F&B franchises like the Blue Elephant, Trader Vic's, and Benihana

"It's definitely a new era in the history of Rotana but one that has been carefully orchestrated and planned to enable Rotana to continue to break new ground in the hospitality industry. Rotana has over the past few years proved that it can migrate its successful brand and operational formula to regions beyond the Middle East. We will continue to push ahead in exciting new markets such as South East Asia, Eastern Europe and Africa, following an approach that has worked very well for us in the past growing organically and growing in markets that we understand," said Al Nowais
