Marriott International has appointed a new General Manager to lead the launch of The Tasman, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Hobart. The appointment comes at a time of great growth for the company, with 10 new hotels set to open in the next two years in Australia alone.
“I’m delighted to announce the appointment of Stephen Morahan as the new General Manager for The Tasman, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Hobart,” said Sean Hunt, Area Vice President, Australia, New Zealand and Pacific, Marriott International. “2019 is set to be a big year for Marriott International in Australia with a number of brand debuts and hotel openings, so it’s essential we have a dedicated team of General Managers who can help support this growth and drive strong brand positioning.”
Stephen steps into his new role with over 10 years’ experience at Marriott International. His career commenced in 2006 in food and beverage at Sheraton Noosa Resort & Spa and has taken him across Australia and Thailand to properties including Sheraton Grand Sydney Hyde Park, Westin Siray Bay Phuket and Le Meridien Chiang Rai. His most recent role as General Manager at Aloft Perth saw him manage the successful opening of the Australian-first hotel.
This experience will be invaluable in his new role at The Tasman, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Hobart, scheduled to open in 2020, which will mark Marriott International’s debut in Tasmania and the first Luxury Collection-branded hotel in Australia.
