Worldwide: Radha Arora, president of Rosewood Hotels & Resorts, and Michael Dojlidko, group head of legal at Rosewood, will take on additional responsibilities as co-chief development officers.

The newly created shared role will see Arora and Dojlidko lead the group’s expansion plans whilst retaining their existing titles. 

They will grow the footprint of the group’s five brands: Rosewood Hotels & Resorts; New World Hotels & Resorts; KHOS; Asaya; and Carlyle & Co.

Arora first joined Rosewood Hotels & Resorts in 2011. During his 10 year tenure, he has overseen the brand’s growth from a predominantly North American brand to having a global presence. Prior to joining Rosewood, Arora has worked at Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts where he spent 16 years.

Dojlidko has served as Rosewood’s group head of legal since 2017. Previously, he spent 12 years at Starwood Hotels & Resorts where he most recently held the title of senior vice president, general counsel of Europe, Africa and the Middle East.

“I am thrilled to officially announce Radha and Michael as co-chief development officers for the group, a role in which they will continue to expand their leadership and further Rosewood’s positioning in the industry and around the world,” said Sonia Cheng, CEO of Rosewood Hotel Group. “Over the past six months, Radha and Michael have been acting as interims in the position and in that short time our development team has signed eight new deals across the world. I am excited to see Radha and Michael fully take on these new responsibilities and lead our brand into key markets through our ongoing targeted and strategic expansion.”

Rosewood Hotel Group currently has 30 new projects under development across the brands. In the remainder of 2021, three new properties will open under Rosewood Hotels & Resorts, including the brand’s first hotel in South America.
