Hilton has announced the appointments of Navjit Ahluwalia as Senior Vice President and Country Head, India, and Jatin Khanna as Vice President and Head of Operations, India. Effective immediately, Ahluwalia will oversee Hilton’s 33 hotels trading and under development, including the recently-opened Conrad Bengaluru, while leading the company’s growth strategy in the country. Khanna, who assumes his position next month, takes over operations from Andre Gomez, who will be moving to a new role elsewhere in the company. “India is swiftly becoming one of the fastest growing travel and tourism markets in the world. As we seek to rapidly expand in the country, there is a need to grow our leadership team to ensure we continue to deliver best-in-class hospitality, in addition to ramping up our pipeline,” says Alan Watts, Executive Vice President and President, Hilton, Asia Pacific.
Both Ahluwalia and Khanna will be based in Hilton’s India regional office in Gurugram.
