CBRE has further strengthened its national hotels team by recruiting highly experienced professional Will Connolly as a manager in its leading Victorian business.
Mr Connolly, who previously worked at Colliers International in its hotels division, has more than ten years’ experience in the hotels industry. Prior to that, he managed his own agency specialising in hospitality sales.
Scott Callow, Senior Director, CBRE Hotels, said he was delighted to have recruited someone with such extensive experience.
“Will has been active in the Melbourne hospitality and leisure sector for 10 years, with the added value of three generations of family involvement in the hotel industry,” Mr Callow said.
“Will is well known throughout the industry, having actively dealt with many hotel groups, industry professionals, vendors and purchasers. He has been instrumental in many successful business and property transactions throughout his career, ranging from smaller, privately owned venues to larger group owned establishments.”
Daniel Dragicevich, National Director, CBRE Hotels, said that having someone of Will’s calibre join the team will allow CBRE to further develop and enhance its offering in the pubs market.
“Will is one of the most active agents in Melbourne and he understands it’s continually evolving hospitality scene. He has a strong knowledge of food and beverage operations along with the Victorian gaming industry and will be a valuable addition to the national pubs brokerage team,” Mr Dragicevich concluded.
