Mantra Group has appointed Andrew McTaggart as Development Manager to facilitate the company’s ongoing expansion.
The company says he is “well credentialed in hotel operations, finance, development and acquisitions after many years in senior executive positions with Accor and Accor Premier Vacation Club in roles including Hotel General Manager, General Manager of Acquisitions and Chief Financial Office”.
McTaggart said he’s excited to join Mantra Group’s development team, who in the past two years have added 22 new properties to the Group’s portfolio.
“As the industry is in a significant growth phase in terms of product development, I look forward to promoting the many attributes and advantages of the Peppers, Mantra and BreakFree brands and working alongside the Group’s vibrant and experienced team of more than 5,500,” he said.
Mantra Group Executive Director of Acquisitions, Michael Moret-Lalli, said the Group is on track for another solid year of business growth.
“In FY2016, Mantra Group increased its portfolio by 11 new properties, adding more than 3,000 rooms to its inventory, making it Australia’s fastest growing hotel group,” he said.
“The wealth of expertise offered by Andrew, combined with seven acquisition announcements in the first half of FY2017, positions us well to exceed last year’s record result,” Moret-Lalli said.
