Change of Managing Directors:
Philipp von Bodman will become Managing Director at the ACHAT Hotels;
Wilhelm Kotter retires.
Wilhelm Kotter successfully managed the business of ACHAT Hotels Germany for almost 20 years. But, at the end of the year, the native of Lower Bavaria says "so long". As part of the succession plan, Philipp von Bodman joined the Executive Board on September 1st. As of January 1st, 2019, the 43-year-old will take over sole responsibility for the company's management.
Growth with a Sense of Proportion
Under Wilhelm Kotter's management, the hotel group gradually developed. From 13 hotels with revenues of around € 5 million in 1998, there are now over 30 hotels with approximately € 65 million revenues. The new LOGINN by ACHAT brand for the premium budget segment is becoming increasingly established in the hotel sector. Several further contracts for new sites have been signed. Including in Offenbach am Main.
