To tackle its exit from the crisis after having faced the lack of tourism and health restrictions, the Barrière group is putting in place new initiatives. Chairman and CEO Dominique Desseigne has decided, in agreement with the Board of Directors, to create a new department called Strategy & Development. This will be entrusted to his son Alexandre Desseigne-Barrière as of May 1st. Vincent Arnaud, a recognised hospitality specialist, is also joining the Barrière Group as Managing Director of Hotels and Restaurants.

 

Barrière wishes to bring a new dynamic to the family-owned group by accelerating and diversifying the development of its activities in France and abroad.

 

The mission of the Strategy & Development department is to bring a new innovative and unifying vision to the group in order to meet the major challenges facing the tourism sector today.

 

“In the coming months, the world of tourism and leisure will have to face many challenges. Not only to manage the recovery, but also to imagine our businesses of tomorrow, to anticipate customer expectations even more and to create sustainable value. I am delighted that my son Alexandre Desseigne-Barrière has accepted the responsibility of helping to build the Group’s future alongside the teams who are keen to share new ambitions with him,” said Dominique Desseigne, Chairman and CEO of Barrière.

 

“We have many assets and I am proud of the mobilisation of everyone during this difficult year. The success of our reopenings, at Christmas or during the weekends of January and February, is a great source of satisfaction and hope for the future, and I know that I can count on the professionalism of Vincent Arnaud to accompany us through this period of renewal. I welcome him.”

 

As such, Alexandre Desseigne-Barrière retains his position as Group Transformation Director and is responsible for the diversification of revenue sources and the development of new establishments in France and abroad as well as new online activities.

Julien Huel, who has been with the company for 11 years, first in the Finance Department and then in the Catering Department, has also been appointed to sit alongside him as Deputy Managing Director. At the same time, he joins the Group’s Executive Committee.

 

This is also the case of Vincent Arnaud who joins the Barrière group as General Manager of Hotels and Restaurants. After starting his career with the InterContinental group, he joined the Sofitel team of the Accor group in 2008. Since 2017, he has also held the position of Regional Vice President Sofitel France in order to reposition and energise the Sofitel brand.

 

In addition to Dominique Desseigne and Alexandre Desseigne-Barrière, Julien Huel and Vincent Arnaud will sit on the Board of Directors alongside Eric Cavillon, Group Managing Director of Casinos and Casinos France Development. They will also be joined by Vincent Arnaud, Managing Director of Hotels and Restaurants, and Philippe Perrot, Managing Director of Support Services and Group Chief Financial Officer. On the women’s side, Christine Deloy, Advisor to the Chairman, Managing Director of Brands and Institutional Relations and Emmanuelle Anglade, Managing Director of Sales, Marketing and Technology, are also on the board.
