    SkyCity Entertainment Group has created a new hotel management division in an effort to create a wider network of SkyCity branded properties. 

    Named SkyCity Hotels Group, the new company has been set up to “deliver on SkyCity’s hotel growth strategy and manage on-going projects, including the Horizon Hotel in Auckland, the Adelaide Casino hotel, as well as day-to-day operations across the SkyCity precincts,” according to a press release on Friday. 

    The new division will be led by Group GM Hotels Brad Burnett, and will be supported by Colin McClean, GM – NZ Hotel Operations, Glenn Hallam, Director of Development and Integration and Caroline Ah Chong-Douglas, Director of Sales and Marketing.

    Burnett said he was thrilled to be leading the team in a new phase of development and opportunity. 

    “The new centralized SkyCity Hotels Group function will allow us to not only synergize operations across our sites but also encourage a Group focus to ensure that we continue to expand and provide experiences and entertainment that excite and inspire our guests, each and every time they come and stay,” said Mr. Burnett.

    “SkyCity is truly committed to its hotel growth strategy and we look forward to sharing more developments and exciting changes in the coming months,” Burnett said.
