Delivering a high-quality extended stay service is complex and demanding. Motivated people with relevant experience and effective teamwork are essential.
I am English-born, with dual Australian nationality and Spanish as a second language.
My professional background is in marketing and general management.
I have occupied C.E.O. roles, in multinationals, on three continents, which gives me strategic insight into the employee mobility needs of our clients.
Having acquired a small Melbourne company in 2003, Convido is now a major industry player in APAC.
Our directors, who are part-owners of the company, have impressive backgrounds and strong industry reputations. They bring complementary skills and experience to form a powerful team to deliver for our clients.
Managing Director of Australia and New Zealand
As Managing Director of Australia and New Zealand, my blend of a multicultural upbringing with extensive sales experience in sophisticated corporate environments has helped me to refine Convido into the leading extended stay accommodation provider in our region.
My unique cultural insight fosters environments where guests from diverse backgrounds feel at home and employees are nurtured. With a keen understanding of client needs, I lead the Convido team to deliver exceptional service to both clients and guests. I have a passion for delivering seamless transitions for business travellers and project teams requiring comfortable homes for their stay.
I am a Philippine national with extensive international business experience.
My time with premium hotels, The Peninsula and Shangri-La in Singapore and as a key member of the Manila Shangri-La start-up, has ensured a keen awareness of the importance of customer service in the accommodation industry and the critical importance of teamwork.
Subsequent experience in the brand licencing industry exposed me to sophisticated marketers such as Sony Pictures and Lucas Films, requiring effective communication skills at all organisational levels.
Key roles in property development in the Philippines rounds out a relevant skill set for the expansion of Convido in the Asia region.
I was recruited in 2010 to build the Convido Manila business in Asia from scratch. Convido is now recognised as the leading corporate housing provider across the Asia Pacific region, with a strong product quality and client service operating philosophy.
I have extensive accommodation industry experience in senior roles, including Chief Commercial Officer at Quest and Managing Director APAC at Oakwood.
Additionally, having worked in Asia, Europe, North America, and Australia, I bring a broad strategic perspective to assist the team in achieving their growth objectives for the APAC region.
