Recent General Manager Changes At Accor

Changes continue within Accor as several General Managers relocate for challenges at new hotels.

Accor recently announced that Carl Braddock will leave the newly refurbished Novotel Lakeside Queenstown (formerly Novotel Gardens Queenstown) to take up a new position as General Manager at Hotel Ibis Christchurch. Jim Moore will move from his position as General Manager at Mercure Hotel Auckland to take up the reins at Novotel Lakeside Queesntown.

Following this announcement, Dick Breukink has left Hotel Ibis Christchurch to take up the position of General Manager Novotel Tanui Hamilton & Hotel Ibis Tanui Hamilton.

Dick started his role at Novotel Tainui & Hotel Ibis Hamilton just after Easter and is looking forward to a new life in the Waikato region.

“Hamilton has improved dramatically as a destination and is now a dynamic city with plenty to offer travellers. Among other things, Novotel Tainui Hamilton is well known for hosting many sporting groups and we are very much looking forward to hosting the Hamilton V8 Supercars participants and guests.”

Dick has been with Accor for the last 17 years and has managed hotels in Thailand, Malaysia, the Philippines, the Netherlands and New Zealand. During the last two years he managed Mercure Hotel Dunedin on an interim basis and oversaw the opening of Hotel Ibis Christchurch, which was newly built and opened its doors on 1 June 2007.
