D-EDGE appoints a new Managing Director APAC


Emilie Couton takes over Kristen Tan as Managing Director of the APAC Region within the D-EDGE Group, a technology provider to the hospitality industry.

Emilie Couton has lived for over 18 years in Asia, first in Thailand and then in Singapore, and benefits from her solid knowledge of the APAC region. She is also a respected figure in the region’s hospitality industry.

After receiving her MBA in Strategy from ESSEC Business School, she started her career with the Accor Group. During her 20-year career with the world’s sixth largest hotel group, she held various management positions in the areas of sales, digital marketing, customer experience and loyalty.

She has in-depth knowledge of the needs and challenges of hospitality players. In particular, I have participated, by speaking frequently, in thinking about the evolution of the hotel industry. These are all skills that will help him fulfill his new role within the D-EDGE group.

Emily knows the sector like the back of her hand. With her understanding of the markets and her passion for the hospitality industry, she will help us grow our clients’ business and create new opportunities in this region. For this, she will be able to count on the excellent work done by the D-EDGE APAC team led by Kristen Tan. Christine has been instrumental in developing our strong and lasting relationships with our clients and I would like to thank her for the past seven years of fruitful cooperation.

Pierre Charles Groupe, CEO of D-EDGE

I am delighted to take on this new role that will see me work with all of our teams, partners and clients in the region. The reopening of borders and the recovery of travel demand are among the dynamic factors on which we will rely and support the hotels. D-EDGE continues to expand its customer base worldwide with the recent arrival of groups such as Accor, ResNet World or Dusit Hotels & Resorts. I look forward to promoting a culture of performance and excellence in the region.

Emilie Couton, APAC Managing Director of D-EDGE
