Named Chief Executive
At Veriu Hotels and Punthill Hotels in Melbourne, Australia
Sanjana is no stranger to overseeing the growth of a hotel brand, having steered Quest over a period of seven years through a period of meteoric growth in which it opened new apartment hotel outlets in 50 locations before then engineering a sale of the company to Singaporean based Ascott Limited.
He now takes charge at Veriu Hotels and Punthill Hotels, which together comprise a collection of 20 small to mid-size designer properties in CBD and inner-city suburbs of Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. Among these is the recently announced commencement of construction on the Veriu Green Square in the NSW capital, near Sydney Airport.
The Punthill brand, exclusively operating in the Melbourne market at the moment, is eyeing Sydney as a future destination for expansion, whereas conversely, Sanjana says he sees potential for the Veriu brand to make the move south into Melbourne, along with pushing both brands carefully into New Zealand.
Sanjana begins in his new role Monday 27 August, 2018.
