Following Cycas’s first UK partnership with Accor, in May Jonathan Bowen became General Manager of the Ibis Bridgwater (opening January 2021).

In May Cycas’s central hotel support team was further strengthened by the appointment of Martin Hird (right) as Group Director of Sales, joining from Interstate Hotels & Resorts.

The recruitment drive follows the company’s appointment of five regional experts across France and Germany earlier this summer in advance of the opening of Cycas’s first two French properties – a dual-branded Hyatt hotel by Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport – this autumn.
