Ex-president Sarkozy joins AccorHotels' board
Paris, February 23, 2017

Former French president Nicolas Sarkozy might had suffered a humiliating defeat in the presidential primary last year, but he has found a new job in the hospitality industry as a director of AccorHotels.


The appointment of Sarkozy demonstrates Accorhotels' intention to pursue implementation of its strategy and promote its brands worldwide and French know-how in tourism, the group said in a statement.

Sarkozy was named independent director to succeed Nadra Moussalem, who had stepped down as AccorHotels’s director following Colony Capital’s decision to sell its shareholding in the company. He will hold the appointment for the rest of Moussalem’s term.


Sarkozy will also chair AccorHotels’ newly-formed International Strategy Committee to focus on the development of the group’s network and brand portfolio throughout the world, as well as on the promotion of French tourism.
