ZUZU Hospitality (ZUZU) has appointed François-Alexandre Léonard as its Head of Operations. While focusing on ZUZU’s next phase of expansion in the region, he will oversee new hotel onboarding, channel operations and pricing optimisation teams across the company.

Southeast Asia’s leading hospitality management services startup is eyeing to increase online revenue for the unchained hotels in the region. The company empowers these independent hotels by enabling them to access the latest technologies and skilled resources, previously only available to large chains.

Vikram Malhi, Co-Founder of ZUZU Hospitality, said, “As we continue to aggressively scale our business across Southeast Asia while focusing on delivering a high level of service to hotels, there couldn’t be a better time for this appointment. With François-Alexandre onboard as Head of Operations, we can lean on his invaluable experience in scaling large operational teams to help us grow ZUZU Hospitality across Asia.”

François-Alexandre was earlier a COO at Doctolib, a French healthtech unicorn. He comes with considerable experience in operational management and customer support.

François-Alexandre Léonard, Head of Operations at ZUZU Hospitality, stated, “Looking at the highly fragmented hospitality industry and the business/technology challenges that independent hotels face in Asia, I am convinced there’s potential to build a unicorn in this space. I am impressed with ZUZU Hospitality’s business model, technology platform and experienced team. I am super excited to be joining them and I look forward to leveraging my startup experience in streamlining overall operations to help them scale across the region.”
