Club Med has named a new president and chief executive officer for its North America and Caribbean division.

The all-inclusive company has tapped Carolyne Doyon for the role, in which she will succeed Xavier Mufraggi.

Mufraggi had served as CEO for North America and the Caribbean for more than a decade; he has now been promoted to the company’s new CEO for Europe, Africa and the Middle East.

In the new role, Doyon will oversee more than 3,000 employees and lead sales, operations and development activities for four regional offices and nine resorts.

“I am proud to announce the nomination of Carolyne Doyon, currently senior vice president of Canada and Mexico, to chief executive officer for North America and the Caribbean,” said Henri Giscard D’Estaing, President of Club Med. “Carolyne’s determination, sharp commercial expertise, and strong leadership will be instrumental to achieve the strategic goals of the North American division.”

Doyon will be reporting to deputy CEO of Club Med Michel Wolfovski, spearheading its plans to grow capacity by more than 30 percent by 2021.

Club Med will soon be debuting its newest Caribbean resort, the Club Med Miches Playa Esmeralda in the Dominican Republic, this fall.
