New international body for hotel executives


Association to provide career support and other benefits
A new worldwide association for hotel executives has been launched to provide career support and other benefits to members.
The International Association of Hotel Executives (IAHE) is a subsidiary of the International Association of Hotel General Managers (IAHGM), and the two will be run as separate entities, sharing links in relevant areas.
“During the development of IAHGM, we received significant interest from other hotel professionals looking for independent support,” explained John Cameron, chief executive of both IAHE and IAHGM.
“Therefore, we felt a responsibility to create a bespoke solution that meets their needs, without taking anything away from the exclusive offering established for general managers.”
He added: “It makes real sense for us to nurture the interests of this wider industry group, especially as they account for a large part (approximately 80%) of the talent pool for future general managers.”
IAHE membership is open to hotel executives who have served as ‘head of’ functions in roles across 13 categories: manager/resident manager/executive assistant manager, director of finance, director of sales & marketing, director of human resources, director of rooms, director of food & beverage, director of revenue management, director of IT, director of PR, executive chef, executive housekeeper, chief engineer and head of security.
Membership benefits include medical and life insurance and retirement and savings plan options, which will stay with the member regardless of job status or country of residence. There is also career assistance and support at the Career Management Centre, which provides independent evaluation and assessment, career development plans and the formulation of a candidate package. The new association will also offer a paid service to GMs who are members of IAHGM, giving them access to an international database of potential job candidates.
