The Chairman of The Lux Collective (“TLC”) global luxury hospitality group, Arnaud Lagesse, has announced the appointment of Olivier Chavy as its next Chief Executive Officer.

Hailing from France, Olivier Chavy will be responsible for the overall strategic direction and performance of The Lux Collective whilst pursuing its expansion in high potential markets. Olivier will work alongside the board of directors, key executives, general managers and staff of the resorts, to innovate and craft distinctive experiences that will further set the iconic hotel group apart.

Chairman Arnaud Lagesse expressed honour in welcoming Olivier, highlighting his dynamic leadership and vast experience with prestigious groups, including Travel+Leisure, Mövenpick and Hilton.

After a rigorous selection exercise, the board is proud to announce the appointment of Olivier Chavy. We are confident that Olivier’s experience in the travel and hospitality business coupled with his over 30-year track record in business transformation will strengthen and guide TLC towards its future strategy. His mandate will be to continue to ride on the wave of success of TLC and grow our different brands in the various key markets, whilst curating new brand experiences and bringing to life our culture of exceptional service,” stated Arnaud Lagesse.

The Chairman thanked Paul Jones who will be departing TLC in June 2024, following a 14-year tenure as CEO. “Paul’s unwavering commitment to delivering unparalleled guest experiences and market share leadership had a pivotal role in reaffirming TLC as a globally recognised luxury hospitality brand. He leaves a great legacy and I wish to thank him personally for the sustained growth in Mauritius and internationally.”

The new CEO will leverage the board of directors’ support during this transition period. “I am honoured to join the team of this distinguished group, especially at such an exciting time. The Lux Collective, an award-winning Mauritian homegrown brand, is globally acclaimed for its exceptional service. My familiarity with TLC’s presence in the diverse markets, from Mauritius, the Maldives, and China to upcoming destinations of Vietnam and the UAE will be advantageous. Whilst I look forward to rediscover these regions, my priority will be on collaborating closely with the team members, recognising their vital contribution to TLC’s future success and beyond,” noted Olivier Chavy.
