Speaking of the appointment, Mr. Henry Fitch, CEO, Teardrop Hotels said, “We are pleased and excited to introduce our brand of unique hotels to the Indian market through BRANDit. The hospitality sector has endured tremendous change in the recent past, impacting behaviours across the paradigm from travellers to hoteliers alike. The travel hiatus has resulted in a renewed enthusiasm, with visitors wishing to see the destination from a different perspective. With the sturdy track record that the BRANDit team has held over the years, we are confident of achieving greater visibility in India and will leverage this opportunity to elevate the Indian travellers’ experience with the finest indulgences that we as a brand have to offer.”
