Strengthening its Leadership team, Royal Orchid Hotels Ltd. (ROHL) announced the appointment of Arjun Baljee as President of the company. Arjun is the co-promoter of Royal Orchid Hotels Ltd, and was involved with the development of the first Royal Orchid Hotel in 2001. His role of project implementation with the group saw the company grow from two to ten hotels within a short span of 6 years. The expansion, under his able leadership, proved to be the catalyst for Royal Orchid’s successful IPO in 2006.

Arjun comes with over 20 years of experience across sectors like real estate, technology, start-ups and hospitality where he has worked with and advised multiple businesses from new-age companies to traditional conglomerates. He was a strategic advisor to the Tourism Development Fund of Saudi Arabia, a sovereign fund responsible for investments across the tourism infrastructure in the kingdom and has worked with several government bodies and charities across geographies.

He has proven his mettle when he first engaged with the company and helped scale business in a short span. I am confident his leadership skills will pave the way for the company to achieve its goals in the years to come thereby enhancing shareholder value.”

Fuelled by creativity and innovation, Arjun is an outright go-getter who delivers results. In his new role, Arjun will be responsible for new projects, brand building and company’s growth with a vision to expand the group’s footprint into newer geographies.
