Accor has been voted into the top 10 best pan-European companies for investor relations in the latest Thomson Reuters Extel Survey.
And chief financial officer Jacques Stern was ranked the third best at that role within a pan-European group.
The survey, now in its 36th year, is one of the most highly regarded rankings of its type. More than 5,000 professionals contributed to the results.
No other hotel company or hotel company CFO was featured in the top 25 of the respective rankings.
The survey also ranks brokerage firms. The top three in the leisure, entertainment and hotels category were Morgan Stanley, Deutsche Bank and Cazenove.
