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. This allowed him to discover a gap in worldwide hotel accommodation and inspired him to create a hybrid living and working solution that was yet to exist in the hospitality industry.
Hans is now a thought leader for subjects related to brand, innovation and the future of work. 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. Hans was educated at Hotelschool The Hague and Cornell University in the United States.

A place you can call a second home, even on your first visit.
So much more than a long stay hotel. It’s a neighborhood.
Where the neighbors borrow more than a cup of sugar.
They share ideas and ambitions.
They mix the local lowdown with the global highlights.
Where the word on the street keeps you streets ahead.
For this is a ‘good company’ company where everyone can bring their dreams to the table.
Where those busy connecting the world can catch up with each other and the scene surrounding them.
Smart and uncompromising, Zoku is a hive of smart lofts and friendly spaces, designed so you can stay connected, well rested and throw yourself into your work, your play and our city.
This is a place that is furnished to fit, not to split.
Encouraging each other to live, not exist.
To dream, not sleep.
To smarten up, rather than dumb down.
To go at it together, rather than alone.
Together we can work hard, play strong and rest easy.
Whilst we blur borders, combine cultures and live our dreams.
