Wyndham Hotels & Resorts recently named Nikhil Sharma Area Director for the group’s Eurasia region.

Driving growth in a promising market

Together with his team, he will oversee Wyndham Hotels & Resorts’ growing footprint in India. His goals will be to boost revenue performance and brand engagement through high-quality standards.

“The Indian sub-continent offers a fascinating potential market for Wyndham Hotels & Resorts. With the footprint of the world’s largest hotel franchising company and a strong portfolio of brands, this region will continue to support the Company’s vision to make hotel travel possible for all, closer to becoming ground reality. This is an incredible moment to join Wyndham and I look forward to continuing the remarkable work the team has done in the region,” Mr Sharma said about his new position.

He is an all-round hospitality professional and his focus on engagement and attention to the region perfectly complements our existing team and our ambition for the region, as we continue to make impressive strides in its rapidly growing mid-market hospitality segment.”
