Christopher James takes up role as general manager of sales, Australia
Hailing from The Langham Hospitality Group and AccorHotels, James will lead the Ovolo Australia’s sales team focusing on sales for the Australian operation both domestically and internationally.
“I’m extremely proud to have been given this opportunity to work on such an evolving and developing designer lifestyle brand,” he said. “After spending 10 years in the London hospitality scene, it’s hard to miss the buzz Ovolo is making within the hospitality industry both locally here in Australia and abroad.”
Dave Baswal, COO of Ovolo Hotels Australia, says James’ extensive industry experience will be a great asset to Ovolo Hotels as it continues to grow in Australia and beyond.
“Chris has an exceptional track record and his overseas experience, combined with extensive regional experience, makes him ideally suited to this new role for Ovolo,” said Baswal. “With an ever-expanding portfolio – both domestic and internationally – I have no doubt that Chris is the right person to lead Ovolo sales through our successful new chapter.”
