Rosewood Hotels & Resorts has recently appointed Paul Arnold to the position of vice president of development for Rosewood’s global development team for the Middle East, Africa and the Indian Ocean. In his new role, Arnold will lead Rosewood’s expansion initiatives in the regions as well as in Europe.

“Paul has spent the past seven years in the Middle East, and brings extensive hospitality experience, a strong industry network and deep regional market knowledge to his new position,” said Alex Alt, senior vice president of global development and strategy for Rosewood Hotels & Resorts. “His extensive experience and wealth of knowledge make him the ideal candidate to build upon the success of Rosewood’s Saudi properties and soon to open Rosewood Abu Dhabi and Rosewood Dubai hotels.”

Arnold has spent the last 12 years working globally for Ernst & Young. He most recently worked at the company’s Dubai office, where he became a key establisher of Ernst & Young’s real estate, hospitality and leisure advisory services practice across the Middle East and North Africa.
