Global hospitality company Marriott International promoted Ranju Alex as its Area Vice President for the South Asia region on Friday.
Prior to this appointment, he was the Market Vice President for West India.
Alex will be based in Mumbai and oversee the company's operations across Bangladesh, India, Sri Lanka, Nepal and Bhutan, Marriott International said in a statement.
He is set to be responsible for creating and executing a strategic road map that will focus on the establishment of brand positioning and expanding the market share of the Marriott portfolio in South Asia.
Ranju Alex has over 28 years of hospitality experience and is a 12-year veteran with Marriott International.
The veteran will take over the charge from Neeraj Govil -- who was relocated to Singapore after being appointed as Senior Vice President of Operations for the Asia Pacific (excluding China) last year.
"I am delighted that Alex has taken on this role to lead our business operations across South Asia as we focus on leading the business recovery across the region. Her extensive hospitality experience and strong leadership skills will allow us to leverage the strength of our brands, as we continue to innovate and grow across the region, Rajeev Menon, President of Asia Pacific (excluding China), said.
From now onwards, Market Vice President Gaurav Singh based in Bengaluru will oversee South and East India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.
Marriott has also appointed Arun Kumar as Market Vice President to oversee North India, Nepal and Bhutan.
