Jolyon will be responsible for leading the operations for IHG’s portfolio of more than 3,600 hotels, as well as further strengthening IHG’s existing franchisee relationships and developing new ones.

During his tenure, Jolyon was integral to the development of the company’s new HUALUXE® Hotels and Resorts brand, which is the industry’s first-ever international, luxury hotel brand created specifically to meet the needs and tastes of the Chinese consumer. Prior to his position in Greater China, Jolyon worked in senior roles across IHG’s Asia, Middle East and Africa (AMEA) region, including in operations, brand strategy and performance for luxury resorts and multi-brand sales and marketing. 

“We are delighted to welcome our colleague Jolyon to the Americas region,” said Kirk Kinsell, president, the Americas, IHG. “He is a proven operations leader and through his focus on performance and planning has transformed brand delivery, owner relations and food and beverage operations in his previous roles.

The diversity of our owner and franchisee relationships across the region provides a wealth of opportunities to focus on our operational effectiveness and facilitate strategic growth. To continue to work alongside such passionate and committed people is also truly a privilege.”

Jolyon began his career in 1980 as a hotel front office clerk in Melbourne, Australia. He went on to hold various management positions at hotels and resorts in Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, and Thailand before moving to corporate hospitality.
