Hans Meyer is one of the Co-founders and Managing Directors at Zoku. A firm believer of value creation and innovation for the international hospitality industry, Hans is the initial creator and previous founding partner of the citizenM hotel concept and held senior corporate positions in operations and development for NH Hotels and Golden Tulip Hotels, Inns & Resorts.
Experiencing life first-hand as a digital nomad, Hans lived and worked remotely throughout Europe, Africa, The Middle-East and Central America.

Currently responsible for innovation, culture, concept development, and strategic partnerships for the Zoku brand, Hans passionately mentors branding techniques, the power of creativity and guest experience, and innovation in conceptual design for the hospitality and startup sectors.
