About Me
Born in Napier, my hospitality career started as a porter (James Cook Hotel, Wellington) and worked up through the ranks, really beginning in London, where I spent nearly 10 years with Hilton International being Area Director Rooms Operations for Asia/Pacific & Australia, 5 years with Pan Pacific hotels as Corporate Director for Sales, Revenue and Web, and then 4 years with Kempinski Hotels as VP Distribution, Revenue Management, Web operations and eCommerce/Marketing. Broadly put, approximately 50% of my time in Hotel Operations and 50% in Sales & Marketing/Revenue/Web. I now seek a senior executive role where commercialism, creativity and most importantly - Where people count!. An organisation that fully understands that encouraged, educated, empowered people are the elements that will drive maximum business performance. Ideally a luxury Hotel or Tourism enterprise.
