Experienced Hospitality Executive to Expand HRS’ Reach Across APAC Region
Singapore, 09 April, 2019 – HRS, the leading Global Hotel Solutions provider, announced that Senior Vice President Lukasz Dabrowski is moving from Germany to Tokyo to lead the company’s growth in the Asia-Pacific region. Lukasz starts his expansive new role with HRS at HRS Japan K.K. (Tokyo Japan, Managing Director: Yoshiyuki Honda) on 25 March 2019.
Mr. Dabrowski has been with HRS for nearly a decade, serving in regional and global roles from offices in Europe. With this move to Japan, he is now responsible for developing business opportunities among hotel partners and corporations in HRS’ most important growth region. “As HRS serves a growing number of multi-national corporations, the geographical and cultural variety of (nearly) 40 countries across APAC brings enormous complexity in building efficient hotel programs,” said Mr. Dabrowski. “Our unique position in today’s global travel ecosystem – working closely with both buyers and suppliers – can help simplify challenges while enabling savings and traveler satisfaction.”
Beyond his everyday executive role, Mr. Dabrowski is also a member of HRS’ executive board, having served in that role since 2015. He has led HRS’ globally-renown hotel sourcing team for five years, building the group to its industry-leading place today. HRS corporate clients gain from more than 500 hotel-facing staff based in the world’s top 60 business city centers. A member of the GBTA (Global Business Travel Association) Industry Advisory Council since 2016, Mr Dabrowski is an international travel and hospitality industry expert with more than 20 years of experience, including a lengthy term as an executive with Marriott.
““The regional hotel development pipeline in APAC is anticipated to continue its impressive triple-digit growth, and our data reveals tremendous opportunities for facilitating win-win partnerships between our corporate clients and a broad range of hotel partners,” said Dabrowski. “Together with the hundreds of local HRS experts in Asia Pacific, we are excited about maximizing our growth in key markets like China, India and Japan, and doing our part to support corporate programs and hotels in 2019 and beyond.”
Mr. Dabrowski reports directly to HRS Group CEO Tobias Ragge. “With this organizational development, we are responding to our global growth and preparing for the next level of scaling,” says Ragge. “With our partners in the regions – corporations as well as hotels – often having different needs, this structure further expands our entrepreneurial spirit through decentralisation, giving us a key competitive advantage.”
