Craig Cochrane

The hospitality veteran joins the Bangkokbased group as the new Chief People Officer of Minor Hotels effective from January 2023.

Graduated from Sheffield Hallam University with a Bachelor of Science, Hotel & Tourism Management, Craig Cochrane started his career as Director of Human Resources in Jumeirah Group. A position that he held during 7 years before joining Movenpick Hotels & Resorts.

He began within the group as Vice President HR – Middle East & Asia before being promoted as Senior Vice President HR. In 2018, he joined Accor as Senior Vice President Talent & Culture - Turkey, India, Middle East & Africa. He also led Global Learning & Development for the company.

In his new role, the British national will oversee people and culture functions for Minor Hotels, including, employee engagement, maintaining a strong company culture during Minor Hotels’ rapid expansion phase and leading learning and development programmes for the group.

I’m delighted to welcome Craig on board at this crucial time for the company when we are pursuing an aggressive expansion strategy. With his vast international experience and innate understanding of the hospitality industry, I know he will deliver great value and drive Minor Hotels’ employee strategies in line with the company’s future plans.
