We focused on candidates who had an understanding of key drivers of customer behaviour and loyalty KPIs, together with experience in loyalty program development, customer strategy, and core program operations.

Peter has over 13 years of experience in industry leading customer and loyalty businesses in both the Airline and Hotel industries. He held the commercial and operational responsibilities across the European region for the award-winning hotel loyalty programme GHA DISCOVERY, part of the world’s largest collection of luxury individual hotels, Global Hotel Alliance.

When asked for comment, Peter said: “I am very excited to be joining the iconic Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group.   It is a time when travel is seeing some amazing post covid recovery and I am looking forward to working with the team on enhancing their already incredible guest experience through their Fans of MO loyalty programme.

A huge thank you to the Society team (in particular James and Barbara) who have made the recruitment progress such a positive and professional experience and have supported me at every stage”.
