In 1996 he moved from hotel operations to a corporate sales and marketing position at Accor and, in the following years, held various positions at different
destinations, including Vice President Sales & Marketing – Asia based in Bangkok; Vice President Global Sales and Business Development at the company’s head office in Paris; and Managing Director of Accor Dorint SMARD GMBH in Munich. In 2007, Hornman became Vice President Operations Sofitel for Central Europe and Eastern Countries.
In September 2008 he joined Worldhotels, the international hotel group for independent hotels and was appointed Managing Director in August 2009.
