OYO Hotels & Homes has appointed Anuj Tejpal as the Global Chief Commercial Officer, effective September 1st, 2020.
In his new role, Tejpal will work with regional CEOs and leaders to drive global delivery of revenue for hotels which includes various facets like direct demand, OTA and revenue management. He will be supported by all other country leaders and functional heads in refining the central and country or regional organisation structure. All the leaders across these teams will have a direct or dotted line (as the case may be) reporting relationship with Tejpal, going forward. His appointment is in line with the company's continuous efforts to strengthen its revenue and growth organisations to give it the impetus to be one of the first to come out of the pandemic.
Tejpal is one of the founding members of OYO and was previously the Global Business Development Leader. In the last 7 years, Anuj advanced progressively and took on bigger mandates, challenging assignments and has emerged successful each time. In his most recent role, he helped set up the OYO China business from the ground up. Tejpal has now passed on the baton to Gautam Swaroop, the recently appointed CEO for the company business in China while continuing to be the Chairman of OYO China.
Tejpal will be reporting directly to Ritesh Agarwal, Founder and Group CEO, OYO Hotels & Homes. On his new role, Tejpal said, “I am humbled and thrilled by this opportunity. Seeing OYO grow, learning new things every single day and working with the best possible team over the last seven years, has been my motivation and makes me seek excellence in everything I do. OYO offers a unique and inclusive proposal that, supported by technology, allows us to boost the business of small and independent hotels. Today, the company is synonymous with quality stays, where our innovative revenue management capabilities has created a competitive advantage that’s hard for others to replicate. With a razor sharp focus on innovation and technology, we will continue to strengthen capabilities across revenue and OTA management while building direct demand as a strong channel and contributing to the hospitality industry at large.”
