Con graduated from University with a Bachelor of Business, majoring in Marketing, and joined Southern Pacific Hotel Corporation where he developed his career over eleven years through a number of Parkroyal properties.
As a key member of the team at the then flagship Hotel (Landmark Parkroyal), Con accomplished a great deal in turning the property into one of SPHCs success stories. When this task was completed Con sought a position that could best capitalise on his strong rooms background and interest in human resources issues.
This coincided with International Hotel Services joining the market in housekeeping and labour provision to the Hospitality industry.
IHS were looking for an accomplished and trusted General Manager, with a strong knowledge of Hotels and their intricacies, to spearhead taking IHS to the market with professionalism, openness and honesty. Over the next 15 years Con used his Hotel knowledge and experience to build IHS to the successful business it remains today.
