Monique Arnoux is now CEO of Bangkok-based Destination Asia, replacing James Reed, who has been promoted to executive chairman.
Arnoux was global sales and marketing director of Hotelbeds’ Group destination management division based in Bangkok. Before her 10-year tenure holding various regional positions at the group, Arnoux was director / head of FIT at Pacific World based in Hong Kong. Prior to that, she was head of hotels and strategic development with Hutchinson – Priceline.
Reed was one of the founders of Destination Asia back in 1996 and was instrumental in expanding the group’s footprint from just two countries and 18 staff in 1996, to its current 11-country pan-Asia network with over 600 staff and 29 operating offices.
Last year, DNATA acquired a stake of Destination Asia.
