general manager - hotels
AN INDUSTRY VETERAN WITH MORE THAN 15 YEARS’ EXPERIENCE IN THE HOSPITALITY AND ACCOMMODATION ACROSS AUSTRALIA.
Rien’s extensive knowledge of hotel operations, refurbishments and refits, food and beverage, conferencing, brand delivery and positioning make him the perfect leader for iconic hotels.
Joining the Geocon team in 2014 as general manager of iconic hotels, he now also manages the corporate team and hotel managers in multiple properties under the iconic hotels banner.
A consummate leader, Rien has held senior roles during the launch phase of several hotels in the growing iconic hotels portfolio, including properties in Gungahlin, Woden, Tuggeranong and Narrabundah, and the development of new hotels in Murrumbateman, Kingston, Woden and the city.
Fiercely passionate about hospitality, Rien seeks to transport guests to their very own home away from home (with a few lavish extra details) each time they enter an iconic hotel.
