WorldHotels names new CEO

Kristin Intress returns to the top job

WorldHotels has named Kristin Intress as its new Chief Executive Officer, succeeding Geoff Andrew who is stepping down to pursue other interests. Intress previously served as the company’s CEO, and played an instrumental role in building the brand as a leader in the independent hotel sector.

“I am honoured and excited to have the opportunity to lead WorldHotels again,” said Intress. “As CEO I will embrace the heritage and foundation of a market-leading organisation. WorldHotels’ fundamental mission has not changed – our goal is to provide unique hotels for unique travellers navigating the global market.”

Intress has more than 25 years of experience in the hospitality, technology, and healthcare industries. She is a successful entrepreneur, having started and purchased several companies including restaurants, a resort, a medical training centre and a hospitality technology company. Throughout her career, she has built an exceptionally diverse experience base – leading two companies as CEO, holding sales and marketing leadership positions, and serving in the military.

“We are delighted to welcome Kris back to WorldHotels as CEO,” said David Kong, Global President and CEO of BWH Hotel Group, the parent company of WorldHotels. “WorldHotels will benefit tremendously from Kris’ extensive experience, deep industry knowledge and proven leadership. Additionally, her thoughtful and strategic approach will help us move WorldHotels forward, truly unleashing the potential of this global brand.”

Under its experienced leadership team, WorldHotels will continue its focus on driving superior revenue to its hoteliers, expanding its portfolio of offerings in premier global destinations and providing exceptional travel experiences to its guests.
