StayWell Hospitality has appointed Colin A. Baker as the new regional director for its Middle East operations.

Baker brings with him a wealth of hospitality management experience spanning New Zealand, Beijing, Papua New Guinea, and Australia before moving to Dubai. His journey as a hotelier started when he worked as general manager in Christchurch Airport Travelodge in 1991, before opening Holiday Inn City Centre Perth, being appointed as general manager in various IHG hotels in Australia and taking on a corporate role as resorts operations manager in Accor Premiere Vacation Club.

Baker also led the pre-opening team of Park Plaza Beijing West and worked as general manager in Courtyard by Marriott Beijing Northeast. Baker has also earned a considerable experience in property development, having worked in Mirq Corp, a hospitality consulting and real estate investment company. His career in StayWell Hospitality Group began in 2013 when he worked as group director for Technical Services and New Projects and later rejoining as regional director in 2017 after a year working as group operations manager in Coral Sea Hotels Papua New Guinea.

Baker’s 35-year career and extensive knowledge in the hospitality industry is a great asset to StayWell Hospitality Group, especially in the group’s strategic objective of expanding its portfolio and strengthening its presence in the region. - TradeArabia News Service
