Movers and Shakers

Rob von Hartitzsch has been appointed General Manager of the Rydges Plaza Cairns hotel in Cairns, Australia.  Rob took up his position in May 2013 following the transfer of former General Manager Fareid Taheri to QT Resort Falls Creek.

“A major part of my role at Rydges Wellington was establishing the Portlander Bar & Grill – an innovative restaurant concept that has been a huge success from the time it opening 10 months ago,” Rob says.

“I am looking very forward to this next step in my career and am excited at the reality of living in one of the most beautiful parts of Australia,”

Area General Manager of Rydges Hotels and Resorts in Cairns, Matthew Hurley is equally upbeat.

“With its inner-city location making it a popular venue for meetings and events as well as being home to Lilo Bar as an all-occasion party place, Rydges Plaza’s food and beverage operations command a strong focus and are key to the hotel’s success,” Matthew says.
