Accor North America CEO Olivier Poirot is assuming responsibility for the Novotel network in Canada and for Accor operations in Mexico.
Poirot’s additional responsibilities will follow the departure of Michael Flaxman in June as COO of Accor Americas. Flaxman will leave Accor after 27 years with the company.
Poirot will continue to lead the Motel 6 and Studio 6 brands in the U.S. and Canada, and provide support for Sofitel operations in North America. He also has been appointed a member of Accor’s worldwide management committee.
