Marriott International has appointed a new General Manager to lead the launch of Element Melbourne Richmond. 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 Harry Singh as the new General Manager for Element Melbourne Richmond,” 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.”
Harry started his almost 20 year-career with Marriott International in 2001 at Renaissance Mumbai Hotel as a Management Trainee. He transferred to Sydney Harbour Marriott Hotel in 2005, and his career in Australia has taken him to Courtyard by Marriott Sydney-North Ryde as Operations Manager, Melbourne Marriott Hotel as Director of Operations and most recently to Pier One Sydney Harbour as Director of Operations, where he successfully oversaw the renovation of the hotel’s public spaces.
Harry will play a key role in the launch of the new Element Melbourne Richmond, which is scheduled to open in May 2019 as the first Element-branded hotel in Australia.
