Spykerman takes over from Jegge at Worldhotels
Raini Hamdi, Berlin, April 7, 2017

Christina Spykerman has taken over the role of executive vice president Asia-Pacific of Worldhotels from Roland Jegge, who has decided to have some ‘me’ time and will return to the company to focus on hotel development after his sabbatical.


Jegge will supplement Worldhotels’ director hotel development James Koh as “we didn’t want to lose Roland and he didn’t want to leave us completely”, said Worldhotels’ new CEO, Geoff Andrew, interviewed on the sidelines of the International Hotel Investment Forum in Berlin last month.

Jegge was instrumental in establishing Worldhotels in the region and has been with the company for 25 years, with Spykerman as his number two for most of the years.


Worldhotels was recently acquired by Associated Luxury Hotels International, a move Andrew believes will strengthen Worldhotels’ offerings at a time when hotel representation companies face huge challenges, including industry consolidation, chains’ encroachment into their territory, OTAs’ dominance and the rise of sharing economy.
