Appointed as Chief Operating Officer for the Ormond Group

Ormond Group is a new and exciting player in the hospitality industry, shaking things up with its established and new properties across the world. The group encompasses three distinct brands: Tune Hotels, a recognised leader in great value stays, the new Ormond Hotels, a design-led boutique hotel brand, and home-sharing platform SubHome.

Tune Hotels is a market leader in Malaysia, with properties across the country and a skill for distilling the hotel experience down to the essentials: comfort, functionality and fun. With the brand firmly in place, Tune Hotels will now be focusing on continuous reinvention to deliver simple but impactful design across rooms and public spaces in all of its properties.

Ormond Hotels is the Ormond Group’s newest arm, a collection of thoughtful, innovative boutique design hotels that complement and reflect the local area and culture. The first Ormond Hotel will open in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, in 2019 and will be followed by openings in Dublin and Melbourne by 2021, each property embodying the Ormond Hotels ethos of ‘Luxury Simplified’, with great design and intuitive service.

Finally, SubHome is Ormond Group’s latest acquisition, a leading player in the alternative lodging arena and a home-sharing brand that will complement the Group’s portfolio. SubHome manages luxury service suites across Malaysia, with a view to bringing a hotel-like experience to travellers.

What ties these brands together is the Ormond Group’s commitment to innovation in the travel experience space. We focus on elevating the guest experience, through great, intuitive design, thoughtful programming that extends the guests’ experience beyond the four walls of a hotel, and pitch-perfect service delivered by our most important asset: our staff. We also stay on the forefront of technology, employing new systems, concepts and data science to be able to deliver what guests want, when they want it.

So exciting times as part of my brief is to bring two new Hotel brands to life in August this year.
