Frank Fiskers is one of the 10 hottest individuals
One of the world’s best-known hotel industry magazines, Hotels, has identified Scandic CEO Frank Fiskers as one of the 10 people who are hottest in hospitality at the moment.
The annual What’s Hot list identifies people and trends that are currently the most relevant, in the areas of design, F&B and technology. Scandic’s chief executive is considered to be one of the 10 hottest individuals in the trade and is the only representative from the Nordic region.
The justification for this is that Fiskers is a leader who demonstrates an ability to transform his organisation. During 2014, Scandic has bought Rica Hotels, which represents an addition of a further 72 hotels to the company’s portfolio, making it the biggest hotel chain in the Nordic area. Scandic is also planning to open an additional two or three hotels per year in the Nordic countries as well as expand operations in Germany. Also this year, it has launched a “sister chain”, HTL, which has a focus on “hotels in attractive locations at attractive prices” and where the plan is to expand to 20 hotels in the next five years.
