After 38 years spent within the Accor group to develop the brand in various countries in South East Asia such as Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and Laos, Patrick Basset joins NOVA Asset Management as a Senior Partner to support the recovery of the tourism business in this region.
As the tourism sector slowly recovers from the upheaval of the pandemic, countries in South East Asia are reopening their borders and gradually easing health restrictions to welcome back tourists from around the world. In order to position itself and anticipate the massive arrival of international travellers, NOVA Asset Management recruits Patrick Basset as Senior Partner.
Patrick will bring a whole new set of perspectives to the table. [...] The recovery starts now and it is essential to have someone of his experience, vision, and thoughts on board to accompany our clients throughout the entire
hospitality journey. Patrick not only brings his formidable know-how with him, but also an
amazing record of successful strategic thinking and strong relationships with both owners and
operators which will certainly be beneficial for us and our clients
