Singapore, Singapore City. August 01, 2022

D-EDGE Hospitality Solutions, a leading hospitality technology provider, announced that Christine Tan will step down as APAC Managing Director of the company. She will be succeeded by Emilie Couton, a highly-regarded business leader in the APAC hospitality markets.

Emilie joined D-EDGE earlier this year. For the past 20 years, she held leadership roles in Sales, Digital Marketing, Guest Experience and Loyalty at Accor hotels; and contributed to the industry through numerous speaking engagements. Emilie has a deep understanding of hoteliers' needs and challenges. She will guide them through new distribution landscape and practices to support their business growth. Emilie, a French native, has lived in Asia for the past 18 years, in Thailand and Singapore.

Pierre-Charles Grob, CEO of D-EDGE, comments: "Emilie knows the business in and out. With her knowledge of the markets and passion for the hospitality industry, she will help us grow our clients' businesses and drive opportunities in the region. She will build on the great work of the D-EDGE APAC team led by Christine Tan, who was instrumental in the development of strong partnerships with our clients. I would like to thank her for the last seven years of fruitful cooperation."

Based in Singapore and a member of the Board of Directors, Emilie will report to Pierre-Charles Grob.

"I am thrilled to take on this new role and have the opportunity to work with all our teams, partners and clients in the region. We shall build on the strong business momentum with the reopening of borders and the travel demand recovery. D-EDGE is expanding its client base worldwide with the recent addition of Accor, ResNet World, Dusit Hotels & Resorts and more. I look forward to fostering a culture of performance and excellence in the region."

D-EDGE, who provides hotels with state-of-the-art technology (Hotel CRS*, Hotel CDM**, …) and digital marketing solutions to help them maximise their revenues, has been operating in Asia since 2003 (at the time under the name of Fastbooking) and expanded its presence to the Pacific in 2018.

Hotel Law: Legal Consequences

The pandemic provoked more than a global health crisis. It also disrupted world economies, financial markets and social systems on a massive scale. Naturally, there are legal consequences associated with this kind of severe business disruption and the issues will be litigated for years to come. In the hotel industry, there are several issues that are currently germane. One issue pertains to the legal obligations hotels have to re-hire employees who were laid off due to the pandemic. Lawsuits have been filed by former employees who claim that certain promises were made to them when they were furloughed, and they are suing hotels for breach of implied contract. Another major issue involves hotels suing their insurance companies for failing to cover their business losses due to the pandemic. Still other hotels have brought lawsuits against local governments for the strict restrictions that were placed on their businesses, chiefly restaurants and bars. These are just a few of the legal issues that will be addressed in the December issue of the Hotel Business Review.
