PARKROYAL Parramatta announced the appointment of Paul Flett as the property’s new General Manager.
With a career spanning more than 20 years, Paul is a highly experienced leader within the hospitality industry, who has held leadership positions with Pan Pacific Hotels Group both domestically and abroad.
In 2013, Paul was appointed Hotel Manager at the award-winning PARKROYAL Darling Harbour, Sydney, where he oversaw the Engineering, Front Office, Restaurants, Bars and Events and Housekeeping teams, before his promotion to General Manager of the hotel in 2016.
Paul then continued his excellent track record internationally, as General Manager of the 277-room Pan Pacific Sonargaon Dhaka. Located in central Dhaka, the hotel is situated prominently in the centre of Bangladesh’s Diplomatic Zone and commercial district, and in proximity to the city’s historical sites and shopping area. He now returns to take the helm at PARKROYAL Parramatta.
Before joining Pan Pacific Hotels Group, Paul had worked at Cypress Lake Resort in the Hunter Valley, as well as hotel brands including Radisson, InterContinental Hotels Group and Rydges.
“We are excited to have Paul return to the Group in Australia after the robust international experience he acquired during his time at Pan Pacific Sonargaon Dhaka,” said Neo Soon Hup, Executive Vice-President, Operations, Pan Pacific Hotels Group.
“We are proud of our commitment to nurturing talent and we welcome the wealth of knowledge Paul brings back with him to the PARKROYAL Parramatta team. The wider Group will also greatly benefit from Paul’s commitment to cross-brand development and we look forward to seeing the impact that this has across the Australian properties.”
“I’m very much looking forward to working with the talented and committed PARKROYAL Parramatta team,” said Paul.
“Parramatta is the heart of Western Sydney and continues to grow and develop, with no sign of slowing down. I am privileged and excited to work with a team that will continue to innovate and evolve with the region.”
“PARKROYAL Parramatta has a fantastic reputation along with a committed and enthusiastic team, and we look forward to building on already excellent results.”
