Pacific Resort Hotel Group (PRHG), the Cook Islands’ leading resort operator, has promoted Marcus Niszow to Chief Operating Officer.
Niszow will continue to report directly to Greg Stanaway, Chief Executive Officer in this newly created role.
Stanaway said the appointment recognises the significant contributions Niszow has made to the business since joining PRHG and will ensure the management structure at PRHG is optimised to best serve and exceed the expectations of its shareholders, partners and landowners in the face of rapid growth and development.
In his new role, Niszow will continue to oversee PRHG’s Sales and Support teams and will now also actively support the CEO with oversight for all PRHG resort operations across the group.
He was most recently Deputy CEO and Chief Financial Officer for Pacific Resort Hotel Group.
“Since joining PRHG in October 2003, Marcus has made significant contributions to PRHG including establishing solid operating platforms and systems, and building the leadership capabilities within the resort group,” Stanaway said.
“Over the years he has overseen numerous key projects such as the establishment of our PRHG Sales and Support office, modernisation and standardisation of PRHG information and communication technology systems, to name a few, while also helping build performance and success of the PRHG portfolio.
“Leadership development and continuity are critical components to a company’s success. I am thrilled to have Marcus transition into a broader role as we set forth on creating the next chapters of our company’s story,” Stanaway said.
Niszow has 20 years of diverse global hospitality experience with positions ranging from various hotel management roles to group business analyst and financial controller. He is Harvard Business School educated and has received several professional recognitions including being named the ‘South Pacific General Manager of the Year’ at the 2014 HM Awards in Australia.
