Raj brings over 30 years of international hospitality experience and has held leadership positions in the USA, Europe, and Asia. Most recently, Raj was the CEO of the Radisson Hotel Group for South Asia with the responsibility for the region’s P&L and growth.
“I look forward to Raj leveraging upon his vast experience in the hotel industry to take Citymax hotels to new heights of success,” said the Chairwoman of Landmark Group, Mrs. Renuka Jagtiani.
“High-end hotel brands dominate the market, but we see a shift towards the mid-market segment with destinations promoted to a wider base of travellers. We will capitalise on this opportunity to showcase Citymax as a brand that delivers a distinctive hospitality experience through exceptional value and outstanding service,” said Raj Rana.
Raj is a US national, who spent his early years in India.
